I like pretending I mean something to the ghosts
who wreak havoc on my bones-
impaling these masochistic butterfly wings
on railroad spikes
between heartbeats and bedsheets,
immortalized.

I got a heart in New Orleans,
palms engraving names like
Juliet, Alexandria, & Christine
on the seats of greyhound buses.

& I'm offering up 102 degrees of skin to a godless moon
as I breathe in her night scent.
This might confuse you, but it makes sense to me.

I'm sorry for my jumbled thoughts--I enjoy writing when I am half out of my mind.

Free write, enjoy.

"Between heartbeats and bedsheets" - I like that line. The simple rhyme stands out to me for some reason. *shrugs* But I love the poem overall. =)
