My blissful swooning soul swept up
middle of the night, shivering cold.
I remember each heartbeat of the day
when cuddled pressing bodies tight,
we loosed our tongues and let them play
to taste your lips, your skin, your life.
When we were boys, I ate a seed
which you tended as shoots of a sapling grew.
Its piercing roots, they drain; I bleed
your name carved in bark, bone, sinew.
I would feed my own heart to hungry dogs
could I escape this fate, sneak on by.
Though the warm embrace we shared is gone
I can't forget you; believe me, I've tried.
BraveryOn Saturday the twenty-first of January, Elliot took a gun, pressed it to the strip of bone between his eyes, and shot himself.

He died before the sound stopped echoing through his empty apartment.More Like This
This story isn't about that.
I worked with Elliot for only a little while—less than six months. Most of what I knew about him came from his desk. Unlike the smaller ones the secretaries and other reporters had, it was a stately, imposing thing. It would've been terrifying, especially to a mousy little girl like me, but it was covered in paperweights and spare pens and pictures of people hunting ducks.

Withstand the volleys of ash and iron,
Dare not withdraw from the fray,
Yielding into the fear of abandon,
Twisting the blade of a hot knife run cold.
kiss your last kiss,
glimpse your last glimpse,
this is the end,
and whatever comes after,
there was nothing you could do,
to stop it.

and bubble gum
swinging above the bar
and flying through the air after letting go
I am from patchwork dresses at Zen monasteries
and never sitting still
reading with a flashlight under my blanket
and creating my own worlds
and quarters under my pillow
I am from violent games of Red-Rover
and singing with bands in the park
and homemade bread
and treasure hunts in tomato patches
I am from fits of giggles
and Pooh Bear bath toys swimming in bubbles
and going 'Town-town'
that single Taco Bell
and running in the road
I am from imagination
a need to learn
and a yearning for love
I am from many places
and nowhere at all
