    I, Twitter, stutteringly remember

    in cyber chases, late night,

    sitting at computer scrabbling

    after old grievances such are

    lovers, cheaters, jilts, and those

    rare 'got-lucky' graces, unexpected

    shudders and shoulders where I broke

    open, finally laid, laid waste for future flatterers

    and failures of heart.


    Sniffing my fingers for remnant tents,

    I recall, sickened, the candy at every fair,

    hand fulls gorged, glutted, belly sore and

    wanting more, drowned in the push-shove

    of fevered bodies intent on the fast rides

    where one loses stomach for the ordinary.

    Dizzy, I grab my ankles, confess instead,

    I've puked my guts from excess, spun sugar

    and cartwheels, mechanical distractions

    ghosting up Stillborn nights holding their

    breath well past bedtime.


    At a window counting railroad cars

    a boy thief is stealing circus hours.
    (from 'I, Twitter, Stutteringly Remember In Cyber Chases')
