Margy Crumb Poems

i want you to know-
i have been spending the nights awake again,
and there is a train
that travels across
...

2.

when i'm falling asleep with my shoes on
because i'm just too-
faded-
to take em off.
...

jesus christ!
don't scrub your porch right now-
it's 4 am and your neighbors are asleep!
you're shaking and
...

the sidewalk at 2am, wet with stale rain

and a green, eerie streetlight
...

5.

lace feels bad / on my fingertips
denim feels bad / on my nails
...

6.

a voice like motor oil,
onyx with a pretty rainbow film.
...

7.

stretch them until they don’t make sense,
and cry for anyone
...

my skin has been closed for so long
it creaks when it opens
and the stairs up my spine just aren't ready
to be pressed on
...

because
i'll have to be high for that
i'll have to be high for that
i'll have to be high for that
...

we're friends in the morning
but at night we don't know each other.
i'm sound asleep,
wearing her sweater;
...

my love is like a bird
when she is hurt,
it is mortal.
but she soars when it's
...

i'm having a horrible craving.
neck was TOO tight, so i cut it.
you f*cking klepto, die in a fire,
peace be with you, find comfort sweet
...

craving
high
comedown
withdrawal
...

14.

this year has been picking treasured things-
right off of the tree-
and taking bites out of them.
...

The Best Poem Of Margy Crumb

Company

i want you to know-
i have been spending the nights awake again,
and there is a train
that travels across
the tracks by my house,
and at 3 or 4 every morning
it whistles,
sending its signal out into the night
as it makes its lonely journey
to wherever it is headed,
unaware that though the others
in its wake 
sleep through its desperate calls-
i'm awake too,
listening.

and each night 
when i hear that whistle-
i can feel you here with me.
