“You look great.”
What a strange thing to say to someone,
As if that erases everything else
They’ve ever said to you
I love you
I want you)
And replaces it with something
You would toss to a casual acquaintance
That you pass on the street
Or on the subway
Or in the…
he loses his breath. when there’s no more gasping for air,
he asks, “do you ever close your eyes so tight that
when you open them, you can’t see for a bit?”
this is the inverted twenty-twenty.
if this mirror told lies, i would see
eyeballs : green
I’m seventy-five percent water,
And all of a sudden I feel like
My insides are drowning in

You see,I’ve always been a
Good enough swimmer,
But how do I swim away from myself?
Growing up stole the bliss from
My ignorance and I can’t forgive

but more scared of answering.
I’m scared of the idea of forever
I don’t need an infinity
When I don’t even know what to do with the next
the antimatter i keep in my pocket
with loose change
(like a universe)
the weight of things kept close
in the dark
where i hide my hands
when they tremble
(and become something
when they move so close to yours
we almost touch.
