Invertebrate



Invertebrate

To you I am
A magnificent vessel
An Eastern wind across a red city

My shadow spawn
Of limitless dehydration
A nude crackle against the pavement

To you I am
The not-so-full moon
Thrust deep into darkness

My light a never-ending delight
An infant sparkle across your windshield
As you sit safely, shotgun

Trying not to let your mind
Remind you of the moment you
Began to grow numb to the needle.

Landline



Landline

We decide
Nobilities aside
Prescribe the ephemeral
Feeling

Of being subject
To dramatic glances,
Their eyes,
Electric blenders

As you succumb to the sweet,
Sickly exchange,
In your short black dress
And your oily breath,

Flames inside your chest
And beads of sweat along your palm
I look for a loophole in oxygen
While you push at furniture.

Friday Favorite Things #8







Classy


Classy

Surrogate heart
I hear laughter down the steps
In the pharmacy style cabinets
Their glass doors with fulltime fog
I ogle at shapes and shadows

Somebody stole my medicine

An asymmetric whiskey bottle
Hides between tall plastic boxes and
At times I forget it is there, not to drink
But to purify, to disinfect

The well-known gaps along my vegetable knife,
Forty-five bumps smoothened by years
Of potatoes and carrots and 
Shaky white wrists,
Longing for the high that never comes.

100 Things About Me: #6

I have a tendency to being weird and doing weird things and also, liking people who have the same tendency. I don't know how to define weird. I don't think of it as a negative word at all. But I am one weird kid.

Weird things I do: 

I personify things and objects. A lot. I hadn't noticed this before, until a friend of mine pointed it out to me. I'll talk to objects and give them orders. I'll tell a wobbly bottle not to fall over. If there's just one tomato left on the table, I'll put it back in the fridge so that it doesn't get lonely. The list goes on...

I try to sing along to songs on my iPod when I go running. Which makes me pant and groan like an old horse at times. I also have to run to the rhythm of the song. If it's slower I take bigger steps or leaps...

I shave my legs with hair conditioner. My skin hates those foamy things, I'll get a terrible rash. Plus hair conditioner is smoother anyway so it's easier to shave, and it's pretty see-through depending on the product of course. 

I arrange the clothes in my wardrobe by their color. I just think it looks neater. People I know have thought this weird because I might have long sleeved t-shirts and sleeveless tops in the same pile. So? I know what clothes are in which pile on which shelf... 

I read books out loud when I'm alone, usually trying out some accents I very much suck at and I make myself laugh hysterically. It is also similar when I read normally; depending on the location of the story of the nationality of the writer, I read them in different accents in my head. 

I have zero ability to sleep on my back. I always have to sleep on one side, with one knee stuck out and a pillow between my knees and something (usually my teddybear or when I'm at my girlfriend's I curl up around her) to cuddle with. 

I put ketchup on macaroni & cheese. My girlfriend thinks it's weird but I don't know the standard since it is no normal food where I come from so... Is it weird?

When I can't sleep I listen to Coldplay and pretend I'm on a boat or a hammock, something that feels like floating. I also imagine myself levitating above my bed - it means I start losing feeling in my body which means it is relaxing and when I have no feeling at all I am just floating through the room until sleep catches me.
