my life collecting dust

allowing myself to cheat with myself-

cornered feelings reflect a cornered being –

kill your photoshop 

worth can change at any moment–

fighting through preparation –  

signal your intentions–

holding on to bubbles –  

life everywhere–

on my knees I look further-

roads that narrow-

details that lack distance-

having a home on the inside –        

pressing my heart against the skin creating something of an impression–

coerced into everything –      

what should it be–

maybe I can roll if my feet give–

a clear echo– 

further then you think– 

what can I do that isn’t compromising–  

closing the gap on myself through foundation –

Gay Pride 2012   West Hollywood CA- 

creating beauty with what had been unrecognizable- 

looking for hands-  connecting the circle-

searching for the grain-

leaving feelings behind  –         

falling through floors, cleaning with dirty rags–

possessed to instigate-

steering with an old voice  –    

series:  the boy  -  continued 


hoping to be carried the rest of the way-

I can lay here longer-

pushing it in- 

kill your photoshop

doing the things that were easy to say–  

gaining weight-  

the times 1 can equal 2– 

the time when things happen–  

staying when you should go–

looking for a foundation –
