postcards and thank you notesdear Carson,
for you my friend, the odds will forever be
in your favor; I know you are a lover,
I know that somewhere inside a child looks up
to the cosmic sky or witnesses the wonder
of gravity for the first time: you are binary,
a paradox— infinite
you are a warrior, a beautiful beacon of light
& warmth & fiery passion; a sun, perhaps, for you
are strong, far more than I: you will never
cease to be a smoldering ember and the earth
will never cease to watch you glow
a candle is a no more fitting form, you are explosive
fireworks, a feather, gentle and delicate
spiritual vulnerability; if all could open the truth
from their pores, acquaint to it over tea as you, I think
we could figure out how sweet the fruits
of unrequited love can really be
I can feel the culture in your bones, the ring of understanding
in your ears— your voice is a psalm from the gods;
your heart, the purest gift to the world. To only an honor
it has been to be aboard
dead dog julyI.
the summer heat lays limp in the city’s lap,
breathing long oppressive breaths.
it does not even lift its lolling head
to bark out hoarse indignancy
when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
Keep in Touch!
