armed and recycled


just trying to find myself
in need,
a body to hold,
things to wrap myself around.
keys, an old coffee mug
that black notebook

it took me a few
full moons to realize
that there is poetry in everything
and just like me
all words are just trying to find
their way home

back to the wild


potent and undiluted
in solitude and fortitude
promising to remain unloved,
a treaty, a pact

of custody,
consigning, cordially
through these lines on skin,
in dirt and on paper
I am not my own anymore
rub your eyes,
find morning
in your hands
in the sugar
in your coffee, sprinkled,
ego torn and locked in your hair
do not feed it,
it is already
obese, on the verge of dying
sleeping. I never closed my eyes,
wrapped in vertigo,
I fell towards you
not for.
our foreheads touched,
our minds opened and then it was just.
bright, orange,
try for something,
everything. Compete for love,
wave your fists at poverty,
long to connect your veins
to her veins,
be short of breath,
run through the thickets
of under-grown nails and teeth
as they bleed you,
remake you
and squeeze in your hands a piece
of mind or
peace of heart.
tangle yourself in the fight
for something

Just wanted to add: The fact that your last name on here is C. Lewis is utterly thrilling--even if it is just a pen name.   That is all. And, in the words of Sting, "I'll be watchin' you." ^^
