I embrace the untouchable
in this very touching life,
taking my addictions to the bed with me
waking in someone else's night

Words and scripted messages
points and questions, thoughts
the slight of hand in someone's eye,
pens that run fluid from a mind stopped up
with dreams that lose their colors

Music, a page flutters like a leaf
torn, its last from the tree
how a sound can be the cheek stroke
my sullen jaw longs for

I wish these things had more weight
the kind I could get buried in
smothered in and crying
but rather they give me wind
in puffs of hope, higher still
and the people are like sand
