armed and recycled


only here,
in the barren wasteland of my bedroom
do i ever find a pack of skeletons,
none dancing, none singing,
but all just laying there on their spines,
glaring at the walls.
They are like me, except I never do feel at home
not with these teeth marks on my heart
and my lost collection of egos
and feeling worth it.

the world is spinning faster than I can keep up,
but slow enough to lull me to laziness.
the sun is 92,960,000 miles away
but it is closer to me than anything has ever been.

still, I run my fingers through the carpet,
looking to touch something, to feel.
there is marrow there,
maybe even a foreign skin from somewhere underground,
but all I see is a herd of biologists, and make-ups and DNA's;
I can't tell which is mine anymore.
you are in Ireland,
with that same thunder in your eyes,
setting fire to the greenery of men's hearts.
I can sometimes see that same spark
in me, rumbling, low and hungry.
So I cling to it. The one thing that burns,
that hurts, that assures me I am not
numb, that I am living with blood in me,
and there are neurons that are gassed and running
that I am
in the very least.

you are in Ireland,
with your coal hair and unforgiving touch.
there was a lightning in you,
striking every chord of your own happiness.
no, I haven't seen a red cardigan since you left,
and daylight doesn't look the same.
I miss you
and I know I am missing
something. you
are where I am supposed to be
