draft, unfinished

my loves are stacked tracing paper
rubbings of graves from the 1880s
records so loved they blush n dust themselves off
when i go to lift the player’s arm
with trembling pinky


maybe i have watched too many people sleep,
spy drawn lamp shade eyes of REM rolling
and
justthatquick
the floor drops out and i can see the end,
know it,
restless like tongue’s prison sentence
if this projected splinter posed as a city on map
I could point to it.

my loves.
shelf life different.
how badly wanting was
how translated touch
all
body hinges
bend
same direction
causing massive collapse of midsection
a slinky moon slice of wet
dead weight
under blanket.
