Lightning

I’m sorry
that sometimes
I fall from
my skin to hide
inside the marrow
of my bones
and still ask you
to find me like
lightning without
thunder.

Seashell

Listen
    carefully:
if you 
    breathe
into the
    seashell
of my heart
¬† ¬† you’ll hear
hurricanes and
    disheveled waves
muting a lonely 
    song
that I know
      your 
heart sings,
      too.

Year after year
you fed me dirt and called it chocolate
I ate it greedily hoping maybe this time
it was chocolate.

It never was.
And even though you’re gone for good,
my stomach still aches every single day…

This is me writing
a happy poem
because you told me
to stop being inspired
by Sexton
and
Bukowski so…
Here we go. Ready?
I am so happy 
to tell you fuck off
I’ll write happy when¬†
I want to, thank you. 
How’s that for happy?¬†

~ I do what I want.

My First Poetry Performance

This is not a poem, this is a blog post. I wanted to reflect on my first performance.¬† I performed, “An Almost True Story About Emails”¬†and “Depression”.

I did not expect the words to set me on fire. What I mean by that is: my poetry came alive and I felt each line physiologically.  The words, rhythm, audience reactions, and sound all took a form of their own and my body was just an instrument.  It was absolutely magical.

I had never performed my work like this before, and now I can’t wait to perform again. Thank you to NYC’s Parkside Lounge for hosting the Inspired Word event and to the exquisite audience. I can’t wait to go back!

Ruins

I like to imagine
that flowers bloom
and hummingbirds sing
in the abandoned
ruins of our love.

Words

Spiderlike,
I spin silver
to catch feelings that taste
like my image in mirrors.

Gravity

This evening,
those stars hanging
in your eyes collapsed
into black holes of
irresistible gravity.
