This idea of us being one is not like how I chose us in our nothingness of touch
and cream, the realm or dream of the two of us

what’s so special about pairs?


We taste cold. Tongues, like iceberg we cut. Cut through fine sheets of cotton and tulips. Hips turn to Saturn, Uranus, your highness! The moon is at your front door but you’re at your neighbor’s       you sold what you called “home”


Whenever she was angry she made tomato soup

He ate ramen



Burped bricks, split ends, sunglasses and sound systems. Smell of kitchen in my
hair. Life in my eyes and ears. Hearing headaches of an experience. Heartaches of


The time I drank IPA. The rays of sun shined through whatever you called your

steel arms but I didn’t steal the time that was left, we had left things behind that



You swore to me you would still love me, and I gave you asparagus because

I didn’t have flowers
