Collarbone, lily-livered digits point to your lashes

Fingertips, feeling fragile, drawing circles, eyes wide open

Faithful, painful, broken heart

Prick your ears, prepare to start

An elbow hits your rock bone hard

Confusing years confusing stars


I can’t recall your name in Amnesia

The United States of Amnesia


Righteous baby, lips unwilling, scar tissue,  perfect etches

Vertebrae, pain, it’s killing, shoulder blades, your glass jaw

Lightweight, heart rate, back to start

Heels together, arms at the sides,

Hypertension, larger strides

Pulsing faster, out of the jar
