Tell Me A Story

A Poet's Journey

New beginnings should always involve an element of the unattainable as inspiration.

I'm An Expert At Confessions

Updated: Sep 26, 2018

I’d love to steal one of your

brother’s vintage cars and

go for a spin. If I said come

with me, we could be

re-fashioning old, fearful things,

like what people say

if you mark me as your theft, or

pay allegiance to my mouth

by placing yours on mine. This

topless bikini and your myopia

keep missing the positive consequence

of togetherness.

I am used to a place

made of fences

and lemon groves and

cowboy boots

made for kicking things

out of the way like these

feelings we share, buried

near the ditch, constantly

unearthed by rain, when

it comes.
