Timber, Timbre
You’d think my life is boring, and in some ways you’d be right. There were weeks more repetitive than others. Sometimes days blended into the next, and I’d lose track of time, only to be pulled out of the daze by the soft melody of a bird singing or a harsh wind. Some days the hum of an overhead aircraft or a toddler losing his dummy was the most thrilling part of my day. Some days I wished I could be with them, sing with them, talk with them, run with them. But I’d be chopped down to reality when my roots held me down, like always. Then I’d have to remind myself the pain of their ways, the sorrow and hatred that comes with the passion and delight, and I knew it wasn’t worth it. But I suppose that’s life. Or, my life. Dull. I suppose I served a purpose, but I’m not exactly sure what. But I’m sure I helped. That’s all I really wanted to do, help.
Yet on that day, that one day when I saw them, it changed everything. He was sitti

You saw God
swaying in your vodka smeared dreams
living in a picket fence Suburbia,
how things have changed.
You saw everything
in the rhythm of your shot glass.
Love was never guaranteed.
Binge, obsession is a taste
I can't rid myself of.
I never see God in my Smirnoff,
but it hits cold and terrifying
just like how I remember you
so I keep drinking
until it tastes like hate.

laundry lines
when the boy drawn to priesthood kissed me, his mouth burned.
with triple-layer onion skin and a crucifix tongue, he tumbled
down from a cloud at 9 and snapped his legs in half.
for six nights, the siren sounds bled into mourning.
all great men are bound to fracture. when a bone twists into fury,
breathe sharply through your nose – three times like siren song –
and recall the scent of your mother’s perfume.
we hang wet clothes in the closet in the habit of mistaking
good men for heroes. for so long, i have not had a hero.
my father stomachs the blow of scarred mouths and ambulance
bells. the boy cloaked in liturgy, his hands only build mountains.
if you overturn a single pebble, the river still streams.
when i tanned the rocks a golden brown – the sun shining
down on their jagged curvature – we sang the song of gentle sirens.
Bible pages blowing in the breeze, two legs healing from the
inside out, no more than lungs and feathers and laundry

compasses draw perfect curves
trying to sleep is like a thunderous roar and sometimes,
i feel like the world’s greatest rain storm. i’ve never idolized
anyone more than myself and it gives me tremors,
it makes me shiver. my backbone always seems to think
it’s December and i always catch myself in between seasons.
a boy told me one time “take it easy, life’s not all bad”
and i thought, then, that it must be all good dressed in bad things.
i wrote a letter to that same boy and the first line was
“we respond to overwhelming emotion with fear.”
maybe that’s why i’ve been shaking the way only epilepsy does.
i have seizures on the nights that i can’t breathe because
we were two people who built a ship and then sank it ourselves.
we bent so far backwards, we’ve nearly come full circle.
my doctor said “this might be something that you just have
to learn to accept” except he doesn’t understand that
curves are only useful when they don&
