Five Words That Can Cripple a Man

maxmundan:

Five words
Magic words
My father spoke them
Magic words
Spoke them aloud
Five words
Magic words
Words that change the world
Terrible words
Ugly words
Words that cut my father to the ground
Like an axe
Chopping down a tree
Magic words
The five words were these
“Your
Brother
Has
Committed
Suicide”

And with these words
My father began to die
Slowly but perceptibly
A little bit more
Every day
With these words
Magic words
A vital man
A flawed but decent man
Filled with life
Began to disappear
From me, from us, from everyone
Folding in
On himself
A dying star
With these words
Magic words
Five words
“Your
Brother
Has
Committed
Suicide”

Five words
Magic words
Take a life, any life
My father’s life
That is placid, calm, sweet
And turn it
Upside down
Inside out
Five words
Magic words
Expose the world
As cruel, remorseless
Unforgiving
That’s what they do
Five words
Magic words
How does one live?
When they have spoken the words
Five words
Magic words
“Your
Brother
Has
Committed
Suicide”

There aren’t any words
Magic words
Five words
Or a million words
That can change
That can explain
There aren’t any words
That can help
Once you’ve spoken
The magic words
Five words
Five words
That can cripple a man

Microcosmos

In each snowflake
There is a circuit
The mind and memory
Of a complex computer
There is the map
Of an intricate city
Light
Shining through
The stained glass windows
Of an ancient church
A mirror
Reflecting memory
So precisely
That it breaks your heart
The trauma of your birth
The calm of your old age
The pattern of a butterfly’s wings
It’s all in there
In every single one

fugitive desire

I don’t want to fuck you
I want to become you
Seminal transubstantiation
My hard cock
And
Your wet cunt
Wound together endlessly
A strand of DNA
So perfect, so right
It contains all of you and all of me
Egoless and floating
Tongues
In each other’s mouths
Cocks
In each other’s cunts
Cunts
On each other’s tongues
Endlessly orgasmic refugees
Being granted asylum
In the pleasure
Of our yearning flesh

City Shore

Does this city have a shore?
And if, in fact, it does
Are we its waves
Repeatedly breaking
On its impenetrable rocks?

Or perhaps we are its urchins
Huddling for shelter
Forever waiting, open mouthed
For a sustenance that we know
Will never arrive

The tide of this city
Ebbs and flows
Drawing life away
With a gravity
That is impossible to deny

Does this city have a shore?
And if, in fact, it does
Are we its ships
Waiting out a storm
That has no boundary?
