happy new year, everybody!
(enjoy the fireworks!)
before i diei want a song to make me cry.before i die by birdlu
i want to fall asleep next to my most favorite person in the world.
i want to meet someone who understands and accepts every one of their flaws.
i want to appreciate the value of each moment.
i want to be able to say that I’ve laughed more than I’ve cried.
i want to share something with the world.
i want to wake up with a smile on my face.
i want to tell people how much they mean to me.
i want to experience one of humanity’s proudest moments and truly feel the weight of it.
i want to remember every smile.
i want to realize how good life has been.
my bed sleepsyour eyes are nakedmy bed sleeps by back-bones
lids red and raw,
back and forth
like a tide
closing, half open
like blinds, lashes
a sand's parlor
dug with crooked nails,
sharp but gentle
running over vertebrae
and lips are chapped,
budding open just a bit
like pale, spring
and the sky is a clear,
thin blue, the sun beating
through the curtains
the effect heavy
humming a hello,
and your chrysanthemums
move into a goodbye

heals. kick off those expensive
Italian shoes. turn off the phone
that never stops ringing. turn off
the mind that never stops thinking
close your eyes. go back to summer vacations.
days of dirty hands and windblown
hair, mud seeping between your
toes and too tall grass tickling
your ankles. days when all you had
to worry about was when it was
going to rain next and how many
band aids were left in the box.
unwind yourself. relax a little.
that suit is far to stuffy, and that
briefcase much too heavy for
you to lift today. you know there
are shorts and t-shirts in the closet,
and the sun is shining to bright for
you to stay inside your cooped
up office, full of papers and pens and
things you'd much rather not
