word spooge

a veil before your eyes
drown in heavy cream
drink in honey
toss the container in the street.

lift luggage
lift lids
lift a finger
break down.


like the rough renders i scrawl
with ball pen
at two am,
my love for you is incomplete.

wish we had a past,
instead of this irresolute present.

like water,
ever precious.
for (granted)
for (ever)

let me dream of raw wood
with strong grains
that challenge the tyranny of straight lines
and straight lives
with dogs on rugs in front of fires holding back the draft from the door that leads to rolling hills
or lakes
or all the forests of the world
wrap me in that throw we knitted from the unraveling of our minds
and fall asleep with me on the floor

like a needle shot bullseye from a hundred feet away
a diamond saw crafting impossible beauty from a dusty rock
like how i know the exact way you like your coffee
how you get out of bed
exactly where to kiss your neck
