I know that we have been out of commission lately! Meaghan, unfortunately, is no  longer able to contribute time to the blog , and I have been extremely busy with work, school, and my wedding! We do, however, have a few special Halloween pieces prepared that we’d like to share.

The Last night.

When she vanished

-for the first time-

-for the last time-

I  could not help but swallow a chalky lump

of relief.

And I’m not sure how it happened but

now I am

 engulfed in a

soapy rose–

that dribbles

into my mouth

in  spindly Ribbons.

It burrows in my ears

and toes

 in rumpled gobs that whisper

and whoop

until

 there is a

A fog inside

that I cannot

undream

 I feel your frightened eyes

fumble and peel

as I pass —

She is

-so tall

She is

—so sure

That otherworldly creature

over there—

-Angie

 

Schism

Yes–

 a blue-bold bolt of electricity

pierced

through that place in my head

where the soft spot used to be

276143_12511861_b

that’s why

 my mouth is where your eyes are

-and your heart

is where my skull is.

–and there are

two of every me

to be

to be

Thought Through

eyes illuminate

below the calculated flicks of elongated lashes

bold brows raise sharply

in a delicate distraction

 as fragile fingers begin

to put into play

plans half-thought through

On the Side of the Road

yesterday, on the car ride home,

I had to pull over and

imagine you

slipping your slight fingers

under my shirt and over my fluttering heart-

I let my eyes roll inwards

and back

 to that blinking

 jungle of cobweb confusion

that blossoms

in your body

between sleep and sight.

Where everything flashes

then falls

loose

and limp.

On Your Merry-go-round

by fyarlgiles

I see that it is me

I am running after.

soft, bowed legs

flat, smacking feet

and a lung inflated by the the pinching mist

of your marigold perfume.

542988_13882239_b-1

I live in

circles within circles in  a Nowhereland–

but

 as long as the haze of your touch

tingles

in my chest,

I am happy to spin

like a carousel horse

with a pole

through

its

spine.

Plump Plumb

by fyarlgiles

381923-1830586-7

when curls unfold

limber fingers embrace salty hair

bound by the sea

through the earth

above the air

heaving hearts thrust blood out and around

as lips

once loose with language

slowly suck

breathes large and small

to fill plump plumb colored lungs

which swell

which fall
