The most romantic love stories are the ones where nobody ever gets what they want because they are always pretending they don’t want it.

BASE RUNNING

August burns on and a quiet resin lifts from my skin.
The ruins of my body idling on the couch. Drunk again

or just resigned to erase another day with baseball
and sleep and paperbacks. You have left your earrings

and they weigh down the coffee table, big rings
nuzzling each other. I love being alone and watching

the rungs of a lean man edging off the bag into a lonely
spin towards second base. The days sometimes bend together

with nothing but sun stains, in through the windows
on my bare legs. Cigarettes. Missed Calls. The brain

is such a hapless animal. That praises the length
of each inning, of a ballgame. The length of the season.

The shapes the shadows make on the field. Snowy screen.
The slow trot of this sport—geometry on the TV.

If you are wondering how I am,
I am fine.
If you are wondering what I am doing,
I am missing you
in the aisles of the supermarket
where we decide which tea
is best and which salad
is best and
look it’s this one right here
because this salad
has rice in it
and we both will enjoy
eating that.

While you and I are ostensibly talking about “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” what we are actually doing, since neither of us has seen it, is comparing social media feeds.

There are many
social conditions that
the human mind
has adapted to already
but it seems we still can’t
figure out how
to back away from one person
when we know
we don’t deserve them
and we still can’t help
making our mothers cry
if we know we will feel triumphant
for only 5 minutes.

How about this season of “Game of Thrones” and that nonconsensual intercourse in the crypt? I don’t watch the show, but I’ve scanned the recaps on Vulture.com, and I am prepared to argue that this was deeply offensive.

In Dreams
for my dad, william marshall

I will listen to Roy Orbison and I will take off my makeup with face wipes.

All life emerges from the organization of elements.

I will change out of the lace sack dress and change into a white v-neck, brown leggings.

I have a paint sample in my throat. I have images in my lower back.

Images on a screen to emerge through an organized light pattern.

Walking to the liquor store, I will pet a dog named Kelly and I will think his name as

George. I will say to him, “hi, cute baby guy,” and his owner will say, “yeah,”

stretching out the A-sound.

I am skin and moles.

I will give birth to dog people.

Syrup

We are listening to New Order with the blanket over our heads. Your PC under the blanket is our companion. You touch me again and again. It is very early.

Did I tell you about that dream? My dick becomes a giant sail. It saves us from drowning in the Indian Ocean, the coughing laughs that make you happy. Your breasts were, for whatever reason, two continents.

I am lucky to live during this time. Even though I have a Tumblr. I am an old and wealthy peasant. I produce my own syrup. I cut gigantic stalks of wheat that never die. I like you because you work hard at loving other people.
