Gladly drowning

I can feel the atoms in your smile

vibrate so hard that the earthquake in my mind

is dislodging every single piece of framed

and collected manifesto.

You ruin every strand of thought

and set fire to every sky I've owned.

Even as I sit amongst the rubble I can see the sparks

in your hair

and I'm silent,

like an invisible song,


gladly drowning.
