Stay at work / fix roll-books / bad teachers do it well.

Go home / watch True Blood / bad girls do it well.

sounds #15: pleas

pluck my spine
like elastic
prick my
fingertips
with pins

pinch and pivot
my toes into points

plate my teeth
with nickel
and run a current
through them

trick me
into pins and needles
nettles and poison
break me
to remake me
please

sounds #14: breakfast

Knives clatter
and argue
in the drawer.
Tea cups
bump handles,
give the silent treatment.
I spit in your
juice
and burn
your mushrooms.

sounds #13: creep

talking too close
he’s wild
spider-eyed
and wraps me
in an armchair
to let fingers
drip
like rain
down my neck.

sounds #12: belmore falls, february

The big
melaleuca
flicks and droops
like a drunken
Narcissus.
I salute it with half a beer.
A storm bird spits
one gunshot cry
in return.
The melaleuca
nods
with a soft
patter
of spray:
an understanding.

sounds #11: electric acoustic

I turn off the radio
mid-song
and sidle to the curb.
Wind sound
rises and falls
above the idling motor
as the whole hectic world
blows down your street.
I take one still moment
to watch your window

before I honk the horn
to bring you
rushing out
with your eyes
in the headlights and
good golly Miss Molly
your dress
your hair
electric and alive.

sounds #10: stellar

my awareness bright

sounds #9: escaping face

every sentence he says
ratchets her jaw a little tighter

he fills the silences
she creaks under the strain

her eyes empty
blue
hollow with echoes

permalink
sounds #8: teeth

I’m your fox
my tiny bones caught
tremoring with drumming heartbeat
and the slow twitch of shock.
My hair matted
from the damp of your palms.
Thin in my own skin, binding,
unbinding, doublejoints.
I leap
I rip
but can’t tear loose.
