“But one kiss levitates above all the others. The
intersection of function and desire. The I do kiss.
The I’ll love you through a brick wall kiss.
Even when I’m dead, I’ll swim through the Earth,
like a mermaid of the soil, just to be next to your bones.”
” I know loving me isn’t easy – the all-night helicopter parties,
the glow-in-the-dark haircuts,
but when I look at you
it’s like praying with my eyes.
it’s stupid to not own a gun yet have
so many triggers, but in some other world
gigantic seashells hold humans
to their ears and listen to the echo
“A good God is hard to find.
Each morning I look in the mirror
and say promise me something
don’t do the things I’ve done.”
