She was a compulsive pessimist, always looking for the soft brown spot in the fruit, pressing so hard she created it. Amy Waldman, The Submission

It starts with bloodshed, always bloodshed, always the same
running from something larger than yourself story,
shoving money into the jaws of a suitcase, cutting your hair
with a steak knife at a rest stop,
and you’re off, you’re on the run, a fugitive driving away from
something shameful and half-remembered. Richard Siken, “Driving, Not Washing”

Madrigal

(John Campbell)

Let’s undress & let our bodies float above us.
The moon is new as pitch & given
enough time, the river will brush out the mountain,
so it is better to start off with sex
than with longing. We call this fashion. But the bed
& the tumbling of bodies, this is an ending.

Then how do we begin?                Fully clothed.
No. This is boring.                  Yes. We need tits.
No. Less terminal. Ankles?        Yes. Wrists.
Yes. Vulnerable. The memory of both soft spot & skull.

Yes. Let’s just make a pair of cat faces for a masquerade. Or
give me your hand & we’ll meander. Forget the moon,
the mount, the ocean & the hard-on. Forget the body’s tangle.
We don’t need the ocean. I know. I’ve seen every beachhead
from Normandy to your doorstep &
this is not the ocean.                 This is oxygen.
Listen. The moon is pitched & new again. No more, no less.
Listen. Cartilage. Bronchiole. Alveolus. Artery. Night sky.
Yes.

i’ll be leaving Thistle very soon. i don’t know what i’m doing but i want to begin again; yearning for for the promise of the unfamiliar and new. you understand this, don’t you? this need must be so familiar that you must understand. i’m feeling all sorts of things at the moment and i hope you’re around for company
