A poem is a wave.
Love is a feather.
Send me your heart in a letter.
I will read it by the ocean.
Movement is denial.
You lied through your smile.
I can see your insides.
Buying out the real estate.
Poetry made you soft.
Feelings are lost in your basement.
Sands shift and apples fall from our treetops.
I am bottomless.
We read the newspaper,
To find the flavors we savor,
In morning’s fragile kitchen.

Pale blue water
Turtles sparkle
Reefs made of diamonds
Lungs topple tyrants
Relatives and root canals
Police the equator
Fake staircases
Leading everywhere
