fitful fingers, past rind and pulpuntil, naked and trembling, i tooka deep
breathand peeled back the last layer of skin to bare
the subcutaneous wild electric heavenly soul, raw and shivering—
a caged bird screeching behind a riba frenzied moth chasing some elusive holy fire, thrusting its small, soft body
again and again
up against the quaking glass church windowof the eye

this morning, after coffee 
and toothpaste
i began 
to excavate— to dig
with

fitful fingers, past rind and pulp
until, naked and 
trembling, i took
a deep

breath
and peeled back 
the last layer of skin 
to bare

the subcutaneous 
wild electric heavenly 
soul, raw 
and shivering—

a caged bird screeching 
behind a rib
a frenzied moth chasing 
some elusive 
holy fire, thrusting 
its small, soft body

again and again

up against the 
quaking glass 
church window
of the eye

yes, it hurt
no, i don’t know 
why i did it
i guess because
it would have hurt more not to

i guess because i wanted 
to see the source 
of all that poetry

There is a Fire

There are too many times I have wished myself away, like summer freckles or the dust behind my bed,Flickering here and there like an old movie reel.I am not as small as I once was; but these days I feelless like an ocean and more like an open wound,something inside of me sick and holy.Some days I feel like I must be three hundred years old andsome days I am just a flower pressed deep inside a book,my petals thin and wide and marked like frail skin;And I’m tired of undressing as a kind of leaving,and I’m tired of fearing that I might tear around the edges.There is a fire growing behind my teeth and it is poison.I often wonder if I could swallow and light myself up from within.

There is a Fire

There are too many times I have wished myself away, like summer 
freckles or the dust behind my bed,
Flickering here and there like an old movie reel.
I am not as small as I once was; but these days I feel
less like an ocean and more like an open wound,
something inside of me sick and holy.
Some days I feel like I must be three hundred years old and
some days I am just a flower pressed deep inside a book,
my petals thin and wide and marked like frail skin;
And I’m tired of undressing as a kind of leaving,
and I’m tired of fearing that I might tear around the edges.
There is a fire growing behind my teeth and it is poison.
I often wonder if I could swallow and light myself up from within.
