"Every life is in many days, day after day. We walk through ourselves, meeting robbers, ghosts, giants, old men, young men, wives, widows, brothers-in-love, but always meeting ourselves." - James Joyce, Ulysses



you have your arms

around the sun,

your heart

swimming in the

beautyblue ocean.


languidly we live, 

lonely we love.


in your eyes,

i am infinitesimal:

a fallen peach,

a dirty apple.


every other day

you speak to me:

wan words

wading in living waters.


there’s a fractiousness

inside you

but only directed toward me.






maybe if i get you in the beautyblue waters,

swimming on your back,

face to God:


a colossal kiss.


maybe then you’ll

become my romantic catastrophism

and (maybe) then i’ll let you go.
