You were everything. Softness upon innocence                I have always been enthralled by the                  formlessness,                  finality                            of you. I did not have to utter in my grief   you were hidden           in the incense-burning of my soul. In smoke you became beautiful,     a phantom to all        but you were always                real                       to me. -D.E.M

My back broke under the weight of the       expectations I had             for you. I saw you not as you are   but as flawed as          I am. We are who we pretend to be        and I have worn the mask of tragedy                for far                    too                    long. So great are our tears     yet so small our sufferings. -D.E.M

I love you in your inexistence   rabbit’s ear   baby’s breath               you are dust               but you are                       mine. Misadventures and      dew drop mornings                small curls                large eyes      my bones cannot knit your future. Sunsets and moonbeams               sleep burdens our eyes               your soft lips sigh                         there is a better world for you                                    than this. -D.E.M

I found you, perfect  tucked within imperfect flesh                a ghost                a whisper                you. You asked nothing of me,        but I desired the world        from you. Even with good intentions          the ones we love tend to hurt us the              most. The house I built for you        crumbling        bleeding    and                         just                         like                         that I lost you. -D.E.M

You dreamed me. A breath in crescent pulses    suddenly I am    existing in your pillowed fantasies                   tucked beneath heavy eyelids. Soft, willing            moon flesh            there is magic in your bones. Vulnerable, we                      remained entwined                      carried by the night tide                      imperfect                               I am yours. -D.E.M

Fragility
A tree     you              fell     a summer of awakening     now the winter of              death. Silent crashing           becoming of the earth           and I sank to the bottom                   your waves of flesh an                             endless river. Words quiet tears separated                    forever. -D.E.M

Memo
I am   barely a whisper. Dashed upon the rocks I am               a broken afterthought               shipwrecked              lonely                                small. Equally bound by crushing expectation              I breathe in coal              my lungs are blood diamonds                     sold to the unblinking masses. A child, I    grasp to dreams    my little hands were not meant           to hold. -D.E.M

You were born in thought,        a fragment of a dream        but even then                I loved you. Knit from bone        you became whole                a sweet revelation                in my own rebirth. You opened        as I closed             my breath cast into the quiet             burning bush. -D.E.M

Children do not forget. We were on the cusp of greatness,        standing on worn, wise shoulders        you cast us down the wishing well                our innocence drowning in rigid expectation. Dial tones         letters         we do not answer the call                our response irrelevant                to your adult sensibility. Lurching in your death rattle                we are folded in pages of your forgotten history                only are we perfect                         when desperate fingers have                          nothing else to cling to. Children, we                  do not forget. -D.E.M

Mental me
I always remember, always something was wrong. In my unhappy and pain, Faith hit me and didn't care. Very fast I stopped be child, but I don't know if I ever was childish. And really, every part of human nature is close to me. It is funny how strange thing was in my head. But I see too much and hear more. Jo, I am Jo. Maybe something change if you know. Strange and shame Jo. What she think now? I know only I. In school, they asked to if I was normal. If they had know, maybe they would have understood me. I believe that what I do is right, Because better be mad than normal. Jo, I am Jo. Maybe something change if you know. Strange and

You would kill them, slowly.        Every slug on the wet sidewalk, a silent victim                   to your salt revolver                   and I would say nothing. I would never stand up to you,   my voice cowering in its box. Maybe I was terrified, a slug myself              or maybe I liked to watch things die as well. But that would make me a murderer        and I don’t think I am ready. Not yet.                 No

Monday
Did you wake up one morning and decide your name was Monday? Did you lay out slip and stockings and decide that pretty was really underneath, and that your face alone would buy you nothing? Did you think of the men staring on the bus and in the elevators as the car moved up the girders so high your skirt was a balloon? And did the brush of his sleeve against your breast as the crowd moved forward stop your boots from crossing the street and send you into traffic wanting to feel his name?

You ripped me from my mother. I was but a gnat, wholly insignificant                 a fly, caught in your web of displeasure                 but even then                 I knew how cruel this world can be. You were a jealous god       coveting, the gnashing of teeth                        your apologies inconsequential                        my voice too crippled to rise and                        meet them. But in this betrayal I am faithful       licking the back of your throat       until I sleep with the red fern                roots deep in bone                birds above me                mother beneath me. -D.E.M

The Killing Joke: an Article
Hello my fellow writers, readers, and artists! For those that don't know, I contribute to a really awesome geek blog called Agent Palmer ! It is essentially all things geek, and I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to add my thoughts to it! For everyone out there that loves Batman, I wrote an article about the upcoming animated rendition of "The Killing Joke," and I wanted to share. It is one of my favorite stories in Batman, Joker, and Oracle lore, so I jumped at the chance to give my perspective on it. The story itself is extremely complex in terms of theme and character development, so I didn't cover everything it had to offer, but
