the man on the bench had a laugh
like an empty can of paint falling down the stairs.

that means i liked him. i liked a lot of people then,
it kept me warm. that november i was awake
if only inside of my own head. my friends and i had a candle
made out of an altoids tin and it kept us warm.

i kept it in my pocket even though it got so hot it almost
burned. i kept it in my pocket even still. everyone
wanted to see the tunnels we had found behind the buildings.
we took them to the tunnels. the can of paint rattled around
inside of my head, the man was laughing over and over again,
we found a tunnel behind a building, and a candle to keep us
warm and awake inside of our heads--

I was you much more often than you were ever me.
I’ll become you, if only like a fish, stretch amphibious legs through the water

listen to me, i’m writing a twelve part jam
to the tune of your fingernails on the pavement and your breath in a coffin.
shut, up, shut, up, the world beats on and on,
