i. 
        [clockwork rage]



goddamn
dried up
everything
even my saliva
is wooden

you don't 
know it

how homeless
and strong
I am
unbreakable
and so dry
everything



ii. 
          [no air]



can't sing
no more 
can't form 
the words
but I pray 
smoke

heavy smoke
thudding against 
your window
like a goddamn
pigeon

wrung
dry

all our necks
bared 
and strewn about
like dirty socks

this body is
a long 
white
stranger

death
can't feel much
different 
halfway between 

stood up
and fallen



iii. 
          [a whole heart, a whole heart]



but watch this
watch me leer
at the pretty girls
watch me stick
to the sidewalks
unwashed

unrecognizable
I'm dancing with 
fingers 
and with smoke

laid out 
like so
a dead fish
reeling under
the stars 
I'm strong

so strong now
I tell you
when you walk by
with another face
another face
another face

but you never 
listen
anymore.
