of tendencies, the thing about jellyfish is

“i can give you my loneliness, my darkness, the hunger of my heart;
i am trying to bribe you with uncertainty, with danger, with defeat”
purified by reverse osmosis let me make you taste her on my lips
if i’m made of longing resolve last sentences then i’ve been here
before cruise control stabilizes the beast momentarily inversion

i want to finger the strangeness on my cartilage shin bumps
calcium deposits allow the mind to rearrange dust furniture
pick it up and put it down no need to throw it out come filter
defeat’s seduction — feelingless — teach me to survive you
gradients of instability since hot air is less dense absolute

oscillation debt and loopholes lithography of gap teeth
lost of sight balanced with tendriled hair salt appendages
chronotope awareness there’s a certain time and place
where the most painful things are easiest to bear

how did we get on the edge of desire?
all we ever wanted was everything
because we were so close
to wanting nothing
