Slavers of Caledonia :iconmattspire:MattSpire 4 5
I keep dreaming about those big, expressionless eyes. All black with no visible corneas, unblinking, staring out forever and ever.
Many animals have eyes like that. When I was young, maybe eight years old, my father brought home a silver cockatiel. I’d begged for months. It wasn’t even my birthday, or a holiday, and he was a single father struggling to stay in medical school. But somehow he’d made it happen. The bird was one of a few splurges my father ever managed. Someone had already named her Lily.
Lily had those big, black eyes. You couldn’t even tell what direction she was looking unless she cocked her color-mottled head, a curious crest feather unfurling.`
They're the first I remember, but it’s not Lily’s eyes I dream about. It’s the skinwalkers. Lying here, I try to ignore them for a few more precious minutes.
It isn’t comfortable. My face and hands burn every morning. I’m developing a reaction to some unfathomable bacteria o

Coney Island
As though your high cheekbone
Was cut for sanctuary,
A Rushmore of philosophies,
I am moved to feel your face.
And this is it. False geography.
But, you say, the moon's man still pulls?
Childish games, a bickering brain
Liquored in halves.
Meet me here.
Meet you there.
I'll meet you in the center of it all.
Coney Island, on the barbed wire
Tilt-o-whirl catching heads
Like trophies
For orgasmic sacrifices.
Dance naked with me around the purple fire
And the pink-blue halogen haze.
Tomorrow!--we bear child.
I'll cut off it's limbs, by damn,
To make it all fit.
I've sent you a broken crab's leg
From this swelling shore of war
And the buzzing fizz of cold.
The future is a prick in the lungs,
A subatomic gasp in the razor-lined sack of bated breath.

Kissing in the Wind
This is the spasm before the touch,
         Or a larynx stuck in the flaring void
         Of stillborn heartbeats.
    Before the West was known
         It yawned my Eastern glow,
         Multiplied by the eye of the fly
         In a thousand flowing oceans'
Impulsive glances
                                            And in their blow,
I am the drunkard before the liquor,
         Tongue-stuck on the kiss
         Of a bottleneck
    Before the wind dies down.
