cut

I perform the cut

sporadically, but religiously

whenever I look behind

or within

or when I embrace the dark

you see, pain is fabricated

love is too

with careful training

we create homeostasis

magic is a filter

pairing well with dark

the ever so intoxicating pull

of the cosmic mirage

cut, cut, cut

and it grows back and withers

each time weaker and weaker

until fine baby strands remain

breaking off in the tiniest of breezes

love is supernatural

to love is to believe 

in swirly twirly fairies

ghost ghouls and goblins

magic in the sunshine

and terror in the night

man

she posted a picture of her lover

asleep in their bed

his eyes closed in serene bliss

face toward the lens,

a witness to the tender vulnerability

and all I saw was a smelly man

mouth open

potentially soiling 

the delicate pillowcase

and this is why love evades me

most

it has it turns

but it’s better than most

and the jazz carries through the kitchen

while you glow under the light

last year we were miles away

heads spinning from the beginnings

drunk on the chemicals

deluded with optimism

but we forged our solid ground

and I still find my home

in the freckle under your eye

fear

there is fear in our faces, our silence

we spend the days like friends

the nights like strangers

our limbs barely brushing

as we sleep side by side

I think we needed a life vest

(I know I needed the life vest)

but now I can swim.

floating in the salt water,

there are several islands in sight

but I can’t move a muscle

until I let go

B

I cried because the snake ate the mice

shining shimmering scaled serpent 

slithering in the limelight

the villain gets the applause

the villain gets the crown

better a villain

than the devil you don’t know

and may the mice know paradise

in the great beyond
