Collaboration #3 / 2014

Mask

 

For ~ RP

he
taught me
everything
he knew

in the center
of that room

each day
a grey-green haze
of expression-threaded
euphoria

lifted us

gifted us
beyond
the ink stains
on the ceiling

I learned
to ignore her

faceless days
shored up
in the corner
masquerading
self-parading
pseudo artful
fucked-up
feigning

it was easy
enough

to drown out
the spewing
scornful sound
of her dramatic
demonizing
static

like kittens
mewing
in the bottom
of a bucket

it was always
enough

that she had
to wake
everyday
behind that
circumcised
disguise

and I did
not

Unmasked

Don’t disguise your miracles
behind long nights where you lose control,
when you should be seeking
the stories I know you are longing for.

The sweet words you have on pause
should not be kept inside
because the smile lines on your eyes
reflect the brighter ends of you.

I have only known
what was good enough for me,
but in you there is something
worth a whole lot more.

the dark behind the mask
behind the fog
behind the shadows
behind the moon

the light in the crevasses
behind the glare
behind the burn
behind the sun

the frog speaks
the dark grows
until the pond drained

no place to jump
