Who Conquers Who, or Surprisingly Good Airplane Food
We keep in touch phone stuff but what
do I look like in the cumuli
of your mind through the cold half-
sandwich of your lunch break—
I’m learning I don’t always have to clean
my plate, but there’s a saying about way
about waste or is it waist anyway it’s morning.
I’ve already been so many people today.
Does the me you gather in my absence
match the me in my head, the mirror
the text snapchat face chat, the fat
kid wrapped in gummy memory?
Once, we didn’t have the power to turn off—
deathless compass darting landward,
baskets woven to the gods. Now you,
you turn me on.

Have you ever wondered why thrift
stores always smell the same? As if
repurpose, itself, has a smell.
Drrrt fag in slimming black, which abs-
orbs light and reflects nothing—
Everyone, you said, knows their number
unless it changes. When things change
hands, its designation is based on
intent, like leather. You want to fuck me.
Sober daytime sex is the naked-
est. It was hotter then, our bodies
aromatic as cracked something.
What’s the shelf-life of second hand?
You didn’t take off your shirt and I could-
n’t tell who was more naked.
i very much like your stuff!
:-D blush :-D blush :-D

I’m starting to have an eye
on the makings of dry skin.
Impulse aisle induced psych-
osis— Bikini magazine ice cream
schism. Seriously, fuck magic
bullet thinking. Too much credit
is given the panic of “self-control.”
Hard work is hard, but decisions,
like metaphors, are built within
a moat of desire. Love in a hopeless
kingdom. It’s like, sugar and booze feel
good then bad, sometimes real bad,
but art feels bad before it feels
even worse, and then even the best
and I just want to wear a pretty dress.
I’m proud to announce that Ticking will be screened as part of the Northside Festival this coming June.
The film has been hand picked by Tommy Pico of birdsong and will screen as part of his curated “Night of Adaptations”.
You can find out more about the evening here.
