Secrets

Pajamas & Wine

When I say your name
it falls off my tongue in whispers
like a secret
dripping from my lips

ready for your consumption.

You are a hidden garden
a sanctuary
tucked softly behind these eyes
I show the world

but my heart is heavy with too many secrets.

I want to wrap my mouth
around the sharp corners,
the deep curves,
and feel your name rise up from my throat

as more than an exhale.

DRUNK IN A MIDNIGHT CHOIR

& there, gentle smoke cleaved by a small girl’s face
looking into the eyes of her father as if it is the first time &
the shape of her own eyes are a gift from a buried woman
& I realize this part of the performance is not for us
& maybe all life is the years being plucked from our arms
like rose petals & cast into the fields by some god
until we are nothing but alone & eager for the rain
& the mist that rises from it & carries our voices
to those who have survived the wreckage we left &
Kanye West is alone on the screen now & he is alone
in the rain & he is alone clutching the heavy air like he knows
that there is something living inside of it &
I know what it is to never actually be alone
