Where are
We Going
With This?

Memory
Leaks


What I
Leave Off
My Resume


The
Terminator
Line


Machines

Planes


 

I tell her:

I�m the warm corona of heat
that engulfs this relationship

I�m the dead lust
of a 10-hour lifecycle

I�m the screeching halt
of trailer truck tires

She laughs off the words

empties her glass

crosses
naked
legs
and asks:

Why do you talk like that?
What do you expect from this?

I�m
not sure � don�t
know � nothing
no
thing

just � (quickly before we both show ourselves)
put on your red skirt (I know you�re crazy)
your shoes (I know I am as well)
we�re leavin � outa here! (time is of the essence!)
goin to the country (a change of pace)
we�re gonna (become REAL people)
get lost (in a one night stand)
