“You Were Different Then”

“You Were Different Then”

Spineless

the need to communicate in dew

his love grows the ivy

to fall asleep with a sleeping bag

in the middle of a highway

to fall asleep in an avalanche

a tar pit, warm coils

as if all your favorite records

and drawstrings: the pinched face

of a vampire, rogue true blue

to fall in love with tobacco

while waterskiing

and doubles the minty scent

your cold blonde hair in ice crystals

and doubled the minute

the swans drowned

and all their blood bubbles rose

with spring dresses and calling girls

the haze of flip flops, a policewoman

her top down the rim of a roller coaster

why skies with anyone

useless tough leather

the boat drifts off

the devils scatter

and all our insect hearts

hold a party

even the clock chimes’s invited

to deeply swallows keys

and clanging change

only sign language

could revive a faded river corpse

to run from your neighbors

with tears in your eyes

forced mutually

hearts’ immunity.
