Artificial Love Song

I can’t
make you up
and write you down
I have to
steal faces
and make them yours
I’m reduced to
copying voices
and have you repeat
someone else’s lines

it’s always
old and worn and used
and still I beg for
phantom faces,
and android hands
to carry me away,
for cloned lips
and kidnapped skin
to comfort me
(but the words are silver
and they short circuit in rain).

I’m here with
rust on my hands,
and nothing but misplaced relics
to build my dreams from,
and you’re lost
in mirrors, because I can’t
make you up.
