Random Poem:

like diamonds lost
fried2noodle

you push me away
 1
but i keep coming back
 2
again.
 3
 
 
like salt to surface, as
 4
marble eyes rain
 5
down
 6
 
 
on my aching skin,
 7
compressing. pressing
 8
body into flat pieces
 9
of bone and
 10
blood--
 11
 
 
blood ripples like fingers-
 12
pushing into still puddle
 13
as you rise up
 14
from the sea,
 15
 
 
and take me as your own.
 16
 
 
and we are like diamonds
 17
lost in the brilliance of the
 18
sun; scattered on an endless
 19
palm.
