slippage of reality . . .

it’s in the moments
in between
work I don’t wanna do
but do anyway
just for a moment I stop
and it unfurls like a cape
and starts to catch up with me . . .
refer back to list now.
quick.
Now!

between sleep
and wakefulness
that slippery slidey place
where dreams and reality square off
with a vicousness
and kick each others ass
calling each other a liar
fighting for my life
my heart
my bloodpulse
my will
my future
while the ache of my heart
questions my reward
will I be rewarded?
do I believe that?
whose rules are these?
define own . . . . .
what do we own?
what do we have a right to own?
i dont even fully own myself!
you think you’re confused?
i’m a fucking baffle to myself.
the real estate of one’s affection
is not a commodity
these sounds
these squeezings of utterance
pain
longings
squeeze the breath from my chest
seeking alignment.

shake me
shake me hard
coldslap me back into reality

can we contain our vibrancy?
can we bottle it?
send it
share it?
store it up?
save it?
like radioactive fireflies in a jar?

I am not strong enough to hold my spirit here
here’s proof:
I lost my covering
my hair cannot lie
fingers of the scalp
spit follicles like blowholes
we are not meant to be corked . .

there is a realm
as real as the hardest
of all realities
my spirit laughs at
and abandons these atoms
to swiftly and instantly
seek you like a magnet . . . .
and in that moment
the rise of my cheekbone
dives and
custom~fits
like home
in the hollow of your cheek
two lives
two hearts
two worlds
lose separateness
to merge in one breath
to dwell in the rock of peace
close your eyes and just breathe
and be filled
thru and through
coz I fucking mean it
this is real too.
