I've reread the stories from which I squeezed the essence of our clashes
and gardens we made under the clouds of ourselves.
between the metaphors of water, I found we were drowning.
scathing at the waves for our last breath,
we clung to each other, counting the bubbles racing away to the surface.
the light, dying underneath the depth we dragged ourselves to,
drained from my eyes until it was a single star.
and like our wishes it was gone, we were sinking.
I tried to be the bonfire that evaporated the puddles,
but they turned to oceans, and now I'm as useful as a waterlogged lighter.
Now we joined Davey Jones, left to rot
in the hopes the coast guard finds our remains.
Write poetry about me.
about the way my hands ________
almost uncontrollably
and how the wind ________ my hair.
Write epics of my eyes.
compare them to chocolate that had
too little milk mixed in

or say they're hazel,
because you see ________ in them.
Write a play of us.
that way you have the power to craft us
as tragedy, putting Shakespeare to shame
or have the audience laughing, crying,
applauding when you say, "____________!"
Write a story, a summary, a half-attempted introduction.
Write because I can't fill in all the spaces for you.
The Partner of an Illiterate
i want to see the way he puts us into words this time

seeping from sewer grates and teetering on top of towers.
they sit. they wait. they plan for the downfall.
waiting just at the clouded corner of the eye.
they look in the mirror. they don't see green scales or sharpened teeth.
I want them cloaked in red with speakers screaming, "CAUTION. CAUTION."
I want them stored in lock boxes at the bottom of the sea.
that's palpable, imaginable.
out here they merge with crowds, sometimes with their chins higher.
they destroyed empires, contaminated the ground, and took out their own.
monsters, savages, creatures,
humans.
Monster Man

In the recesses was
a creature of black and white.
It clawed and smashed against the crumbling walls,
filling in the cracks.
When spirits slugged down my throat,
the creature retreated to the shadows.
With the steel it screeched,
forcing hate over my tongue.
In the night, it dug deep into the cranial floor
until sanguine pools poured.
Silence gave it room to think.
And with each thought,
actions were taken
until it was the succubus
that let me drown.
Monster has a Creature

stars refracted against the lens of his eyes
the sun was the hydrogen-burning bomb inside his chest
2.8 million years away from detonating
I was the moons revolving around him,
gravity constantly pulling
his thoughts constructed the universe
black holes were his secrets,
mysteries that consumed my curiosity
Earth was his home,
one I wished he had never left.
He Was The Galaxies

My life is a wreck, but you know what they say, a captain goes down with their ship.

I lost my way and the only map is the syllables in my sentences.
