(1)
how is it
that you
have decayed more beautifully
without me

i want to taste
your breath
i fell/feel
in love
with the black holes
between our pulses

the brand of black holes
that devour the space bars
exhale
repurposed light

sometimes 
my empty
curls up in
the baby bottle of you
and you
should drink it
like fresh
saltwater

it would clean
the scars sleeping
in your stomach

(2)
when you
stuff a man/
lover/
love/
accident
into memory
he crawls back out
a ghost
from an oven

he 
licks
his charred lips
asks you 
who
dinner
tastes
like

(3)
why short are lines tastier
but long stories stuffed belly

(4)
maybe our lives
were meant
to be
raindrops
not
oceans

maybe
you glisten
slammed against
my dusty window
