Charge

October 27, 2017

I am a static charge
thoughtless
eager
and uncontrolled.
Charging through my
cells
habits
and vitriol.

Overboard

Crushing depth
Black— no light.
Empty— no life.
Sink freely here
there’s no one to interrupt,
and the silt is soft.


Tongues

October 26, 2017
I am electric shaking		and speaking endlessly--
			Terrible habit			that.
The spindle of my mind		spins so fast
			I can hardly keep		up.
What did I tell her		what did I say?
			A bundle of arms and elbows	and nerves.
I could have said anything	at all.
			But I know I didn't say		nothing.
