Ask all the sameArchiveWords

& I asked if I could play you one more

and I rarely ask for space to inspire

but I recommend its

you spent hours locking eyes with the screen

took the day off

for what i assume is 

your begging seam

can’t

I

just

show

you

the fourth thing to hit me

but the third excited enough to breathe

through a face that fits me

as a man, as a woman,

as a daydream.

& When you 

decide to see me

won’t

need 

to

promise

it was worth 

waiting.

& I would bellyflop

in your hidden lake

just to show you

the

waves

you

create

don’t mean

we’re

always

drowning. 

"It was less like seeing than like being for the first time seen, knocked breathless by a powerful glance… I had been my whole life a bell and never knew it until at that moment I was lifted and struck."

- Annie Dillard, from “Seeing,” in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek (Harper’s Magazine Press, 1974)

We find out the heart only by dismantling what
the heart knows. By redefining the morning,
we find a morning that comes just after darkness.
We can break through marriage into marriage.
By insisting on love we spoil it, get beyond
affection and wade mouth-deep into love.
We must unlearn the constellations to see the stars.
But going back toward childhood will not help.
The village is not better than Pittsburgh.
Only Pittsburgh is more than Pittsburgh.
Rome is better than Rome in the same way the sound
of racoon tongues licking the inside walls
of the garbage tub is more than the stir
of them in the muck of the garbage. Love is not
enough. We die and are put into the earth forever.
We should insist while there is still time. We must
eat through the wildness of her sweet body already
in our bed to reach the body within the body.

-Jack Gilbert

They shot back and forth like apparitions

Shocking news, he said, they found a planet

made entirely of diamonds

I see a girl and an orange and it rectified her puddle rings

here, miss mahogany rioted

masterbated her pleibian ruby

she did not care for the playful numbers

I cannot knight what excites me
