I remember your inner thighs,
your awakening warmth on my skin,
how it felt like toffee rain.
You dripped a kiss into my dreams... more »
I watched him at the window,
gray hair peering at the dawn,
mimicking the morning frost,
his face cut like winter’s throat.... more »
You take me up into a sordid heaven,
a soft space of wet choirs and fizzing stars.
There, in your eyes, I find burning angels,
and a pack of smouldering white veils glow beneath me.... more »
in the finished morning,
returned to rest,... more »
It was already noon
but I was awake.
You came into the kitchen,
a black band tied hurriedly in your hair,... more »
In the darkness
opened.... more »
I find you waiting in me
Sometimes, like hundreds of
Humid birds ready in their
Trees, caged in twilight, waiting... more »
Dawn flickers with your glorious wet scent
and I burn beneath it like electric glass.
During the dark and rainy hours,
where outside, heavily coated people roamed the streets,... more »
I count the sounds
coming off your body;
the back and forth
and back... more »
Even if I told you today, you still wouldn’t really know.
If I said I wanted to take you away with me one last time,
press you to me and talk about it in the night and the rain,
or go to a place where we could just be two drops that fall,... more »
I open my eyes
for the first time.
For the first time,
you are beside me... more »
I will touch you
Maybe tomorrow... more »
Light waited long for you, alone and lost,
sheltering homelessly outside my house.
Hung with moths and cold, it held closely itself,
tracing yellow walls and the footsteps of the night.... more »
In the night’s forgotten hour
you closed me into your eyes,
their black shine taste in my mouth.
Walking blindly in the snow,... more »
There is a garden in you,
a field of low clouds and smashed pebbles;
fertile night growing in soft, damp beach sand.
You sprout lost shapes from the shadows of our between,... more »
I want to be there in the morning,
to feel you stir in the naked heat,
and hear you moving in the sheets.
I would watch your face wake,... more »
Your burst apricot breath,
Smelling like unmotivated bells
Drudging in the heat,... more »
In the room
is the sea
and its drowned
piano.... more »
I love you when
you never remember
to switch the light off
in the bathroom... more »
Standing in the space between when we touch and when we don’t,
I watched from a distance as we kissed.
Together we had formed a tunnel;
something roared inside its depths,... more »
Midnight sun rides your breath,
cold yellow air,
the sound of souls splitting.
Ice on the windowsill,... more »
I never imagined

Three seats away from me
in a dark cinema, you,... more »
How will you remember me?
Wet hands redeeming flesh,
my liquid smell spread across your body.
Those nights we spent hidden away like ghosts,... more »
I wait for you in the morning sun
the morning sun.
Here in the morning sun,
its light burning, burning... more »

or wind from fire stopping suddenly in a corridor.
It’s along those musky halls that I found you,
your delicate steps measured the stretch of night,... more »
