we have gone so far below that we have reached the top

what have you done

with your body

to make it twist

around my heart

there are patches

of velvet

and lace

and skin

and something softer

than i’ve ever felt

i can’t help

but be pulled

below the surface


and mine

there are so many things

i wanted to say

like maybe this isn’t a good idea

but we’ve gone past all that

as the canyon

at sunset

sinks into

the sea



  1. I like all of the textures of this, this is style. Your poems never disappoint: they are very free and rough. The first four lines are my favorite.

  2. as always andrew, so much gratitude. it means a lot to hear those words. be well.
