I am like your body in the sea (for tennyson) , let me calm your tongue, love, in the shallows of god’s west as once (when the demands of your clothes and the salt of mountains behind your lips, were mine to press against)                                                   i did i cannot rest i have seen cities of other handsome boys breathing that loved me safe and slow and are not you wait                                    you , made hard by dark seas (or an idle yearning embedded therein, which fear and old age and many voices, (perhaps) not here, but under blameless stars, drunk, and alive,“Diane Marie”

excerpts from Little Death 1 It is the summer after school’s end and we are outside by the river on the night of the flying ants. It is the hottest day on record. The last time anyone remembers being this warm we weren’t in love or even born yet. On the weather there was a huge sun over where we live. There are one million flying ants. There are one million flying ants and you are walking me home by the river through one million flying ants flying in and out of the folds of our loose summer clothes. We“Diane Marie”
