Don’t Look Up

face-in-trees-illusion

Bristles of green put cracks in my eggshell heart.

“Do you see it?” you ask, sipping on foam

and heat in midsummer.

I twist blades in my palm and

don’t look up.

“Too bright,” I say.

You swat at the air,

put weight on your elbows.

You’re long, eyes shut towards the sun,

spread out like a praying mantis on its back.

“Mmm,” you say.

Did you see me as I went under?

Fingertips first, forearms, freckles.

My breasts were gone before you

asked if I wanted to get lunch in the city.

I tried to reach you but I was

too tangled in roots and the dark damp of us.

I think you called my name when my

ears were being packed with dirt.

“Mmm.” I said, maybe to myself.

“Maybe I’ll see it tomorrow.”

Snakes on a Plane!

True story.

Well I was hoping to get in a full-on, meaty blog post before we left for Florida tomorrow, but work and sleep deprivation and all those things in the “real world” have kept me from doing so.

In any case, the next time I post here will be from sunny Florida, at some point during the week!

You know, when I’m not being distracted by sun bathing on a boat, or sipping on a fruity cocktail, or enjoying a delicious home-cooked meal provided by Joe’s mother (we’re visiting his parents), or rollerblading like a bad ass (yup).

Happy Monday, everyone.

Cheers!

Just for the record…I hope there’s no snakes on our plane.
