She’s a pearl.
by Alexander Z.
You act like we’re all not going to some cave to wither away,
Sure, I’ll keep pretending to pray but lord almighty what seemed so far away now seems so far from delay and it’s not a relay like hi hats in drums, whatever, it must be
heart beat percussion, with or without me all up in your discussion?
You thought you could just take me there
make things fair
make me feel
like I was
Fine, light up my life’s files, bring out my history, blistery, often wounded but you read my writing and you said you liked it so I presumed this: you’re the bliss of a nice kiss,
Not hard, but this thing you are, that I might be, we both know how I love stars,
Giving me worlds, brilliantine escaping the darkness a million times!
Pearl’s are fine, from the deep blue ocean – you keep this going I’ll
Just fuck off everything and we might go somewhere that
Requires sun tan lotion, a pen and some paper to write

We love each other? Don’t make me stutter,
I said it before on the first manuscript and
I’ll be damned if this is not my random
Gifted trip, see the heavens and I’m all
Broken but you look handy,
Yeah, I’m good with
Weapons but you
Look like you’re
Good at fixing
Settting and Mending
