She thinks there are nebulae
in the rough of my gutter bones,
some stargazing sanctuary
for lonely outcasts to lay their heads.

I am but a car crash,
inside eyelids,
& red inked corrections
on crosshatched skin.

Made up of moans,
the clutching of bedsheets;
I am contemplating
ripping my ribs apart
& proving
I never had a heart at all.

But my moon shy love;
she is determined
to try & wake the dead.

After I read this ... I was talking to a friend of mine, and I started talking in a poetic way, I was talking in a style like this (your poem thing), and he said "what has gotten into you?" And I responded with "Can I speak in poetry from now on?" But still, this is an amazing poem, I love all your work, and can relate to allot of it. Thanks for making such wonderful work for the rest of us to enjoy :)

I find the first three stanzas explosively beautiful, and the last is the perfect landing.
