“Will You Still Leave with Me Tomorrow?”

9 Aug

“Will You Still Leave with Me Tomorrow?”

You’ll be special

in memories of you

written on cold breaths:

a route of your choice,

a horse who knows no tomorrow,

a pet who leaves love.

I’m mice.

I’m marbles.

My bones climb to attics without me.

Come along:

we’ll skip the perfume counters

red bullseye parlors, targets at our backs

larynx and lynx eyes, radio silence

ends of transmission: we’re androids

running from a second chance

a wave that could’ve crashed differently

a deployment ritual

beyond the rivets of our design

or kiss me in the rivers

scents hold of you in strummed hours.
