armed and recycled


you were a photograph,
still and true to the eye.
as I saw you, I felt the urge
to post you up against my wall,
hold you there and stare,
swallow your image whole
until I saw things that weren't really there.

but no light and glass has ever captured a ghost,
no spirit was ever seen by
the naked or aided eye. we were all hollow,
left carved open and honest.

what you saw is what you got
and what I got was nothing more
but dead plastic, undeveloped Polaroid,
and goodbye
you left me with a congested promise
and stitches on my bedroom floor
that held me down but held me together.
I was looking for solace,
but I found you.
I knew that we were just people,
humans even. Stacking intentions
and watered down love. We were a city
of atoms and cells and stardust,
all jumbled together. we were a clusterfuck
of morals and ex lovers, and
hardened conversations.

who can expect of us,
besides us?
this, is a vampiric question
that kept us from each other
and left us dying. reaching for the other's heart
beating ourselves up, bruising our future lovers.

I never leave my room anymore
but I hope you leave,
I hope you live and live well,
I hope you find love,
I hope you fucking live
when zombies love each other
we were so intellectual with each other, there was no way we were brain dead. maybe that was the problem. but something wasn't alive there. was it chivalry? romance? you?
