An isolated, winding gimbal floats along
The medium between my lips and your ears—
A tidy pouch
That clutches every thingness in a beaker
And distills it to comprehension—bare minimum,
Square root of Singularity,
Strong like a newborn's headbutt,
As typical as José or Steve, Haruko or Kristin(a).
Ripe, merciless overcoats of crushed purple velvet
Find their way to me
In a bargain-priced thrift store.
They carry faces, names.
Intricate carvings—stones, shells—set in relief on
Technology as old as pants—buttons, Cameos.
Style ŕ la mode.
Cameo is a nice name for a girl.
Annelise Tomoē is what I'll name my daughter,
If I have one.
She already will be and will have been mostly American—
The "new" American—Part French Canadian, Part Mexican,
Part Amer-Indian, Cajun, Japaneezian Asian,
Caucasian (slash) Aryan.
Almost any 'un can make a contribution,
And has, or is about to.

of the orchids cried romance
unto each passenger's ears.
They were not for a particular occasion,
but simply to convey love.
I held them tight,
seated on the transit bus,
as if they were my children,
and I their compassionate mother.
White curls of age
and a soft maroon floral dress
held the elderly woman together.
She, seated adjacent to me,
and kneaded her wrinkled hands.
"For your girlfriend," she told me.
"What a lucky young lady."
Fleshy lips curled
into the gentlest smile
I could muster.
"For my boyfriend."
Those words seemed to pierce
the old-fashioned woman,
like an arrow,
and she nodded.
Slowly, the blood rushed
to her wrinkled cheeks,
and she seemed to have been pained
by this, or confused even;
yet she spoke again:
"What a lucky young man."

Her thin lips flickered pastel dust.

"Say, will you stay with me? Forever?" A very young and childish voice echoed into the nothingness that served as surroundings. Everything was engulfed in darkness, but the two persons standing right in the middle of it did not seem to mind. Instead, they stared at each other, although in this pitch blackness, it was a wonder how they could even see the one in front of them. The voice had come from the smaller of the two, a young boy whose hands were clasped together behind his back. His feet, on what seemed to be the ground, were moving from their heels to their toes, making his body gently swing from back and forth as he looked up the other being in this nothingness, waiting for a reply. The boy was both nervous and eager. He was oh so scared that the answer he would receive would be a negative one, scared that the other one would flee right this instant. But he was still eager to hear, because he was confident at the same time. He trusted that person, trusted it w

He knows nothing but what he's been told.
The age of this child doesn't seem to matter.
The innocence of this young one shattered.
A life stained with blood and death.
He is told only to stop to catch his breath.
He knows nothing but the life of war.

Happy birthday, dear Renesmee, happy birthday to you! my family sang in unison. Everyone I loved was there: Momma and Daddy, Aunt Rosalie and Uncle Emmett, Aunt Alice and Uncle Jasper, Grandma Esme and Grandpa Carlisle, Grandpa Charlie and Sue, Grandma Renee and Phil, Billy and, of course, Jacob with the rest of his pack. I smiled when they finished singing, and blew out all seven candles in one breath.
Present time! Aunt Alice chimed as Daddy cut the cake. She was having almost too much fun, like she did every year. Our houses usually white rooms were covered in pink decorations, there were balloons tied to everything, and the usually empty dining room table was covered in presents from everyone there. We all moved from the living room to the dining room.
Where should I start, Aunt Alice? I asked her, laughing.
Um , she pretended to have a vision. Start by showing everyone the lovely dress your favorite aunt got you.

It was a calm and peaceful night where even the wind had ceased to let the soft silence take place in the air. Not a single sound, a single little noise dared to make itself present, fearing of breaking this delicious peace walking around in the streets of the city. The air was warm, the temperature perfect and still. No signs of a single soul, of a single life were even seen outside of the buildings lined up in the street. Everything was perfectly still, as if time itself had frozen. There was not a single leaf to quiver, not a single blade of grass to shake. To embellish this very quiet scene, the bright and big pool of silvery water just above served as one of the only source of light in the entire city; the other being the million fireflies in this abyss that was as pure as black ink. There was no other source of light, but they were enough. Anyone who would have decided to disrupt the calmness outside to take a walk would have seen almost as perfectly as the day.

"Say, will you stay with me? Forever?" A very young and childish voice echoed into the emptiness. Even though everything was surrounded by the darkness, even though they were blind in this nothingness it didn't affect them. The two stared at each other with a passion they couldn't even see. The smaller seemed to be the one that had said theses words; he was young, fragile and so very much like a child. Hands behinds his back, nervous swinging his body gently, awaiting for an answer. Of course, he probably feared a rejection, but an answer would be better than to be left alone in this emptiness. The other one, the taller, seemed like an adult. Everything in his posture told maturity, experience and darkness. A lone wolf who had closed his heart to everything and everyone long ago. He tensed, hearing theses words, not knowing how to answer, but he would not run, as much as he wanted too. He trusted that child, that precious child and he knew that they felt the same way about

lost all feeling.
call your name,
you turn your face
away in shame.
Said I'd try,
forget the cost,
but for what it's worth
I know I've lost.
A skeptic glance,
I bled it out,
I took the chance
and faced the doubt.
You slice these scars,
now test my heart,
don't be blamed if I

just stay with me
until the end.
Fade to black
close the curtains and
don't look back,
face the pain and
let it out,
'cause you're the hero here.

How did you get on my skin?
I don't know how you got there
Or remember the moment you came into my life
But now, here you are, on my wrist
Yet now I know why you're on me
Between my left hand and forearm
Deep pink with a pale line of white
Hiding the thing that seals us together
A single surgical pin under flesh
Merging with bone and muscle
And over time, you start to fade
Until you are no more
But I will still look and know
The ghost of your presence
And the reason you are
Holding me in one piece

C'è chi fa la stessa cosa

chi lo fa in strada, per tutti,
oppure in casa, solo per la propria famiglia,
chi lo fa con un foglio di carta e dei colori,
chi con un muro, bombolette e pantoni.
C'è sempre qualcuno che ha da dire qualcosa,
ognuno ha il suo modo di esprimere quello che gli brucia dentro,

dobbiamo trovare il modo migliore per ascoltare le cose che gli altri ci vogliono dire...

I hadn't expected him to say yes.
We were far from home before I had the courage to ask why.
"Haven't you anything back there?"
"Yes. But I want something more."
We mostly lived in an old trapper's hut in the woods. I swept it every day but I could never get the floor clean. There was blood on the bedroom wall. I think the trapper killed something here. I hope it was an animal.
I meet an old woman among the trees one day. She is dressed in ragged brown with a brilliant gold locket around her neck. She says she can read my palm. I am skeptical. She takes it anyway.
"Your name is Sophie," she says.
"You want Luke to love you."
"Come back here tomorrow and I'll tell you more."
We eat baked beans again that night.
This time she takes me to a clearing and we sit on the grass. She takes my hand again. I can't take my eyes off her locket. It's engraved with S. S for Sophie. I wonder at the coincidence.
"I can tell your future," she says

Norma Jean's got nothing on us
Concrete coldness seeps through our skin
As the ambulance took him away
You thought you knew him
Two packs a day
Only eight tabs away
From being exactly where you want to be
I see your feelings
I can smell the colour of your kiss
I still taste the way you held me
Pipes in the snow
Our bones froze, then shattered
My broken heart can't take this shit
I sipped on receipt nothings for weeks
Your guitar tried to tell me things
Then nothing as I sang back
Our hands still fit like they use to

I open my eyes and

Sparks fly, burn it down
