I will try to disappoint you
better than anyone ever has.
- Mon Semblable by Stephen Dunn
Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness.

was a gift.

the sexual tension between you and someone when you tell them to shutup and they say ‘make me’
there are worse things than
but it often takes decades
to realize this
and most often
when you do
it’s too late
and there’s nothing worse
-Charles Bukowski, “Oh Yes”
every morning the maple leaves.
every morning another chapter where the hero shifts
from one foot to the other.
every morning the same big
and little words
all spelling out desire,
all spelling out
‘you will be alone always and then you will die.’
You are a fever I’m learning to live with,
and everything is happening
at the wrong end of a very long tunnel.
“Straw House, Straw Dog”, Richard Siken
“I love you so much I’ll never be able to tell you; I’m frightened to tell you. I can always feel your heart. Dance tunes are always right: I love you body and soul: —and I suppose body means that I want to touch you and be in bed with you, and I suppose soul means that I can hear you and see you and love you in every single, single thing in the whole world asleep or awake.”
— Dylan Thomas

He could build a city. Has a certain capacity. There’s a niche in his chest
where a heart would fit perfectly
and he thinks if he could just maneuver one into place-
well then, game over.
