it’s hot
yellowing sheets from sweat
the outline of your body a flippant pear
how long till the screens bore holes in your eyes?

please just leave your room.

you used to have a square jaw but
you swelled from
and lack of movement.

if only your shins didn’t splint, you say. it’d have been so different.

maybe it’s just inertia,
this island you’ve swum to,
alone, burnt, insides aching.
but once you’re there,
by god,
you can’t stop.


Black Rose

Dirty fucking smile dirty lips that kissed someone else’s and then told me you loved me dirty eyes dirty mind dirty hands that were wrapped around someone else’s dick and then stroked my lips how dare you.

Your pull and push and drag your legs the shoes the promises the victory you feel the fucking victory you feel it’s so unwarranted but you aren’t intelligent enough to even see it not mature enough to feel it not good enough to admit it.

So hide behind your selfies your lips your fingernails and the 50 pounds you just spent at Sephora. If Judaism had a hell I’d pray god would send you to it oh but wait a second my parents didn’t raise me to cheat and spite and cower and lie.

I’ll always be the better person. Go fuck yourself.
