as with everything,

awareness is not

awareness is not
action – this morning,
over the toilet bowl,
recognizing that the
body will eventually
act, revolt,
when administered
enough poison

the two cockroaches

the two cockroaches

only right and compassionate
that i poison the others

a slow poison breaks

inside me, you are

the same heart carries

the same heart carries
exasperation as the
same bottle can be

used to hold poison – unchecked,
we pour only what we store

our bodies are made

our bodies are made
to hold down
secrets.
for some, it takes time
to build up
tolerance.
for others, it comes
naturally, with no
perceived limitations,
no instinctual need
to purge.
but bodies are
mysterious, and some
secrets, overwhelming.
it’s a draw on which
will break down first,
risk harm, balance.
beware of
slurred speech

to feel like lead

to feel like lead
is to recognize one’s
own poisoning,
the patterns
employed by
stealth chemical
agents. you don’t
have to know
yourself very
well to confess
that your body
craves, yet
longing
and satisfaction
are two sides of
the same coin

on a scale of one

on a scale of one
to ten, ten being
the kool-aid, you
are a harmless
four on most
days, tipping to
a nine when the
sun comes in
just right, like
a spider who has
found his way
into the bedroom
