my teeth & your teeth turn to a fireflies i pass an angel chewing a rock to make sand. those sharp teeth & eyelids. the carcasses of jellyfish lay around like dabs of grape jam; we are barefoot & careful not to step on them. a man flies a kite too close to the sun. it's bound to catch fire any second but his sun glasses are so strong he can't see anything. the ocean is close to the crease just like the mountain & the closet. a fear can grow if you add water. like this video for more dissociative content. i could stare at the moon until like eyes turn to hard boiled eggs. i am missing the feeling of salt water air. i am missing the bells of dead horses. a donut pulls apart to reveal a ghost or a puff of steam who can know the difference? a butterfly net can be used to catch just about any spector. i stand poised & ready. five locks on my door & i use all of them to be safe though i know an ocean could break down this barrier if it wanted to. the half-hour is as strong a unit of measure as the brick. i could build a house from half-hours. this house is made from watching each & every minute. everyone wants to live alone. i don't & i do & not anymore. do you know what i mean? i mean this is that most knee-caps i've ever had. i mean my teeth are more slippery than ever & the sink & the refrigerator are my companions. when you call me the signal is weak, not because i live in a mountain but because the closet forms a seed pod around me. is my voice the same as it was? i count my fingers to be sure. a door knob becomes an elbow. i am interested in going on a date with a strong oak tree. collecting his leaves, i might make an album of our hands. do you know what i mean when i say it is impossible for me to remember your teeth? send me one in a jar. i want to watch over it until it turns into a firefly. i don't know how i'm speaking anymore-- what with a mouth full of bugs. knock my door down. break my tongue in half. i want to be entered & remembered harshly like a storm that uproots a backyard. forgive me for being blunt. forgive me for my itchy windows. come here. i have a jar ready.
