anti-inflammatory

thigh in my tendons, pulling,

collecting against the boney mass

but i forgot to feel it.

pain the pulley and unmedicate, heartache,

play at the mindgames –

crunch, crunch, crunch –

and dance myself cheater.

shame thinks me into:

bad, i am

edges at grasping.

there was an earthquake down here some time last week

but i forgot to record it

in my log of symptoms.

sleep paralysis

swollen and soft:

a lung, a field of wheat,

away, a breath, and back.

in times like these

an ocean nibbles at toes, you

dress vaguely, eyes half-closed,

sleep-talking to kill

your crunchy morning mind

suspended, like always, above

here and there: turn-taking.

before this tendons stretched

across bones stars flew into debris and you

wanted.

and isn’t that it,

isn’t that all:

Tightness:

frayed, spun from wanting,

a lung, a sound: why

don’t you move
