Walking around together, I hope we walk the same. Darkness will come, in this dream and weather. This city, Is where I’ll dig my grave. The breeze and twisters, falling trees and flowers, Rolling heaps of dried leaves and broken brooms and rakes walk behind me. I hope we walk the same.
I thought you would be kinder. In my dream, I watched you sleep, Dreaming of me where I lived; You watched me dream of shadows and sounds, their shapes and matter; Won’t you wake me up? If you dreamt of me, I would spring to my feet And pinch your shoulders. I would think of […]
On her way back from dance practice, K comes across a recently made friend, S, “Hi, what have you been up to?” S inquires of K as soon as they are within speaking distance. “Not much,” replies K. “Just back from dance practice.”
What does it even mean? It’s a thing you say just to keep them quiet. It’s the thing you do to curb the uprising. It’s a way you talk to hide the problem. It’s the finger you raise to change the subject. The thing you do to scale the protest. The signs you don’t see, […]

Oh for man’s own land I lament. These few months, these last days Watching how blatantly we devour the earth; How to money-blinded minds the oceans wail, How the old flesh of the past today burns out in pipes, choke, and black sadness, Dying again; first by nature, now by our hands.

People with lies, heaven with shrouds – The city is the truth, crowded with […]
