I lie alone

I lie in my bed

I watch the ceiling

“Take your temperature” it says

OK full body check:

I am still pulled in by the sound

My heart is pulsating

I remember everything even the things

No one else saw

No one else heard

No one else felt

Knowing every cell of my own flesh

Knowing the taste and feel of everything


The wild wins

The ocean prevails

Lovers leap

As we encircle Dionysus

And get what this doctor ordered

All I can think about is everyone

At this party leaving

And you and I on the bleachers

Sitting so close


I like it when you say things in Russian

I like it when you swim in my direction

I hear the sound of two worlds coinciding

Back on the wave

Here we go

When this dancefloor is burning

So will

Our hearts
