"The cat mews orchids from his mouth. / His whiskers are also orchids. / The grass is sprouting orchids. / It is becoming mostly orchids."

"forgive the bodies i swallowed like broken teeth: the knees i spent trying to summon god in my own mouth:"

"Say we spend our last moments staring / at each other, hands knotted together"

"There’s a dream I have in which I love the world. I run from end to end like fingers through her hair."

"For woods are forms of grief / grown from the earth. For they creak / with the weight of it."

"Aging, at all. I want that. And to fall / perhaps most honestly in love / beside the ocean"
