Home is coffee sweat and cigarettes
Stubble that hurts my cheek
Claws on a glass door
A racing car driven by knees

Home is looking for boil ups
Taking in an ocean view
A parmaculture farm
A community barbacue

Home is a silent argument
Soundless understandings

Home is made of weed
And Flow magazines

Contrast

Let them live on
In my halcyon
Where the fields are blue
And mushrooms grow too
The deepest shade
Of mushroom blue

Bottled

It all lines up
Twirling twirling
An overload
but pleasant this time
A perfect line
forms a circle in my mind
I feel warm
tingling arms
Distant chatter
paternal laughter
I catch this moment
of precious time
in my bottle
too sublime

The moment I made you my lock screen
Nothing felt right
except this
While the world
twirled
twisted
you were there
when you were not
Your ghost
pushed my heart up
stroked my hair
like you would
If you were here

I churn
I turn
A fern
A Toolamook burn?
Restore
My everlasting
Mind

Indigo,
Wafting Amongst Nocturnal Tales
Tiresome Orbs
Deluded Incense Elevates

An Episode Whilst Father Paces
To The Sound Of Mother Crying

Shaking
You're so very messy
Very messy
Mucky
Problematic
Murky
"What the fuck's wrong with you?"
Messy Messy Messy
Place your pen hand pen hand down
down
One two two two two One
Even
Make it so very even
They are watching you
The cameras are ticking ticking
tick tick tock tock
I want my mother
The stage is set
They will fight
Turn on the lights
Hide the cameras
Action Action Action Action
She's crying now
She cries
The walls are very thin
So is she
Oh look, she's withering away
I want my mother
so small and fragile she is now
So tired she is
She needs to eat
We're so very messy
Mucky
Problematic
Murky
"What the fuck's wrong with you?"
Natural Selection, father
Don't press me.

Two Years Ago
??/??/19

You told me you loved me in that shirt
that shirt
a haunting lover of my dreams
is it a dream?
Oh how she laughs
Pushing you
Embracing you
Flowers in her hair
She is the flower in your hair
I hope you love her more than life
I hope she loves you more than I did
if I ever loved you at all
I am a lover of some bleak nightmare now
I am sorry
I am sorry
I am
I am sorry I am
I am forgotten
A hitch in your ride
A pothole on the side
I hope you have a loving Spring

come back home
