let us launch into

let us launch into
forgetfulness, feathers preened,
bellies two-thirds full

because you still kissed

because you still kissed
me this morning, minutes after
i was hugging the

toilet bowl, heaving, i will
forgive you for poisoning me

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

in the morning, you

in the morning, you
started with, did you
hear…?
in the
afternoon, you
messaged me,
did you see…?
in the evening, you
turned to me, did
you read…?
yes,
i heard, i saw, i tried
not to read – daily,
pulling at and
readjusting this
knot in my stomach
so that i can still
stand straight, stop
bumping into this
monstrous
fight-or-flight
version of me

when the heart breaks,

when the heart breaks,
the body, unbeknownst
to the host,
disconnects, one, two,
maybe several
organs at a time. it
is how on day seven,
the outer shell awakes
first and recognizes
pain along the circuitry,
the stomach reacts,
two-thirds liver-less,
the spinal cord lets
go a bouquet of
nerves, and the
tongue is speechless,
numb to the touch

here’s our history –

of course, some mornings feel

of course, some mornings feel
heavier than others –
it’s natural to
wake up
wanting,
with the reset
button designed
so close to
an empty stomach
