for someone so passionately
against animal cruelty
you've never had a problem
with experimenting
on people.

you won't touch a chicken's egg
for anything
but you fucking
vivisected me
things have been happening
to my body
without my permission.

it is forcibly
medicated, demedicated,

I am afraid
that when these things happen
to my body
with my permission

I won't know
the difference
most of what I'm uploading right now is medicore work because I'm still compiling the best stuff, sorry

when do I stop wanting you?

when do I stop feeling molten
at the look of you,
the steady ache of
continents uprooting themselves
under my skin?

when is it written
that I will cool at the core,
will turn an icy face to you,
will stop rearranging everything for you
as if I am a flower
and you’re the goddamn sun?

can you
and an army of scientists,
maybe two,
do me one last favour and collect the data—
do the math—
tell me the era, the epoch, the age?

I want to set my timescale
to the last twinge,
to the last ugly lithospheric lurch,
I want to know the date
that my life begins anew
mutual core, no more
this is a shitty poem but I feel like shit so that's what you get I guess
I think perhaps I am you,

my hennaed fingertips
on the sun-red brick of your skin,

your wooden intricacies
in the moulding of my flesh,

your fractal tilework in bursts
under my eyelids,

your delicate streets, your artful
confusion, your reeling, your silence,
your noise
in my chest, nestled up to my heart—

I think that I could reach out to touch
and feel the corresponding prod
somewhere deep inside,

some ancient and arcane nook
within me.

I think that there is a fundamental
in which we coalesce—

in which the places we are from
never leave us.

I still exist, I promise

and now that I'm done with my first year of college (!!!) I'll have time to be around more.
I haven't been uploading much because I'm hoarding all of the best poems I've been writing for publication like a greedy dragon!
but I'll get around to looking through my inbox within the next week or so, I promise.

(also, in other updates about my life-- I have a new partner of the romantic type, ahhh! we'll be spending much of the summer together so I am excite!)

I am a particular and difficult old fart, and I have been reading poetry since 1973.  Very, very few poets, of the countless many I have read, have moved my emotions in the way your poems have tonight.  In fact, I have to stop reading your stuff for a while---that kind of intensity, at my age, can only be experienced in small sessions.  I will be back, though, because I think---and will say here where anyone can see---that you are one of the finest poets on DA, and among the most powerful that I have ever read . . . since 1973.  Few poets have shaken me up so much that I have to take a break in my reading . . . but you have done so.  Don't let anyone, any place, or any time change your inimitable style.  It is distinctly your own, and it deploys a verbal power that is more than the mere sum of words or of lines.  Your poetry will be remembered long after most others' has been forgotten.
