My skin
a palimpsest
of every word
you've ever uttered.

Ghost Writing

“I am engulfed, I succumb … s’abĂ®mer / to be engulfed ...outburst of annihilation which affects the amorous subject in despair or fulfillment.” — Roland Barthes, A Lover’s Discourse

Atomos IX

Photographer Nicholas Hughes
Song by A Winged Victory For The Sullen (click picture)




This is not where you expected.

You landed here in a fit of rage-
driving while the moon ticked across the sky,
while the dew collected on the blades in the field.
Whatever he'd said, you cut it at the throat,
then cut apart 
what was left of your heart.
A house can only hold so much blood.

Now morning has burned away and revealed
a deserted landscape.
Those that once lived here,
gone in some unseen event.
Only a few graves
and the occasional lost dog remain.

Your hollowed chest should feel hurt for it.
Only a dead woman would feel nothing.
But all day long the dead go about their way.

The Pumpkin Tide

"I saw thousands of pumpkins last night
come floating in on the tide,
bumping up against the rocks and
rolling up on the beaches;
it must be Halloween in the sea." 

Richard Brautigan, The Pumpkin Tide

Too Little, Too Late

I make up horror movies in my head.

Now playing: revenge film.

Little Poem


He broke me 
the way some men 
break horses - 
with pain 
and persistence.
