Random Poem:

after ten years of loneliness with a kind woman
unknown

i'm an
 1
incoherent streak of lighting:
 2
 
 
a spastic teenager
 3
text messaging women
 4
drinking beer with them
 5
in small bars
 6
on a tuesday night:
 7
 
 
twisting in their sheets
 8
kneeling before them
 9
like a crippled child
 10
learning to walk again.
 11
 
 
thirty-one years old today
 12
 
 
and for the first time
 13
in ten years
 14
my heart
 15
hangs out of my chest
 16
like an unlit lantern
 17
from a pole.
