the intimacy
in tennessee
I find
rather lacking
the urgency
to have
you next
to me
has led
me to
begin packing

out from
the bath
she tied
a towel
around her
put on
an otis
redding record
and knelt
down at
my lap

tomorrow will
be gone
before I
forget this
it is
my mess
sorry for
involving you

I collect
catholic guilt
fucked-up friends
and books
they all
move me
in the
right direction
there is
no revolution
without them

you said
when you
went home
you’d crawl
into bed
now I
cannot get
the image
out of
my head

if I
had a
parable in
the bible
it would
be about
getting stoned

a cautionary
tale of
the dangers
of holding
gods higher
than yourself

she played
that record
so far
and danced
for me
like a
stoned isadora
free and
in love
with all
of the
same beauty
and all
of the
same tragedy
