Day 20: 30 Days of Weezy for National Poetry Month



"it helps me to imagine I'm still alive" 
-Jean Rhys




"So the heart breaks 
Into small shadows" 
-J. Spicer



"doves exist, dreamers, and dolls
killers exist, and doves, and doves;
haze, dioxin, and days; days
exist, days and death; and poems
exist; poems, days, and death"
-I. Christensen



Dear Worldling Under Fire

where a new ocean is forming
imagine a continent
i tried to quit 
six seeds summer side 
walked dark version a splitting 
told mother about a break
line the copse in devil's tongue
temporal experiment
don't believe a girl who wanders
isn't asking to be cut 
there is consumption
there is every waking minute
you can't go deep enough
or write it out 
years enough to ever 
make it stop 
you gloss & mute
a gushing wipes the slate clean
wonder these waters 
how we witness their ending
