LA SORCIÈRE

Binary Theories

put yourself

away:

we can never satisfy

these lovers.

IN THE AGE OF GHOSTS

all of the stars you fawn over
masquerade as broken records

lost in some other decade
or the backseat in that man’s convertible.

LA SORCIÈRE

in my dreams,
i have pastel hair.

lavender waves,
ripen

to curl
around your fingers.

to drown you,
in carelessness

my skin,
just recycled salt

with hair
turns teal,

vibrating out
wishes or contraptions,

no one has decided –
yet.

LAKE #2

don’t look for me – i’m drowning,
i’ll just be down by the lake
remembering you,
with a wilted crown,
loving your reflection
wavy skin, swollen lips,
until the water, says
hello lover, no one else
needs to drop in tonight.

i want to give you lavender diamonds,
even if you’re a champagne communist.
i’ll always promise to stay a telephone ghost
with the best late-night, unexpected texts.
