Eels

Excerpts from six months of (sometimes drunk) iphone notes

    New York:
    Acrylic nails tap the subway pole like baby teeth
    Eels swim through each other
    bad sailor’s knots
    the city chews its own cheek like bubblegum
    and the scabs grow lacquered skin
    in protest

    Frozen to the bone (that I’m gnawing on)
    walking isn’t usually this hard
    but somehow, I don’t mind

    The lotion smells like roses
    and I can’t feel my feet
    I’m losing it in doses

    LACMA (Robert Mapplethorpe):
    She snapped my eye
    clean out of its socket

    to fix anything at allBut we cry together
    for now, we watch the smoke curl away

    and then found it
    (lost her and then found her, you get the point)
    and I’m not quite ready to stop looking

    How do you politely tell someone
    that you love them
    but already have one of them at home?
    this is getting hard to balanceOn one hand you are laughing
    licking cannoli icing off your thumb
    on another, I was uncomfortable
    I was restless
    nothing was new
    I wasn’t even that into you
    until I decided that I was
