..you tell me with your hips and your lips are moving slowly now

..hmmm. I'm not sure how I go for over a month without posting..I have no real excuses. Things are all really, really good. Like, chest-swelling good. Last semester went off perfectly (4.0 betches.), and this semester seems to be starting off in the same right direction -- I've got 21 credits, plus I'm auditing a poetry class, but I'm excited about all of them (except Micro Economics, because..right). Anyway, even though the poetry class doesn't count for anything, I feel like I'll probably put more effort into that class than I will into any other (except advanced nonfic, perhaps). Which is totally fine with me. I'll probably end up posting most of my writing for those two classes in here, so I should be around more often. Hope everyone is doing well..I've been keeping up with you guys, but I'll do better. I promise.



“The face,” they
agree, experts
in your field
of personal destruction.
It starts
with the face – or:
“The tits are the first
to go,” if they’re particularly
…bitter.
(you would say
jealous, but then
you would have a problem.)

You, though,
watch – with all the
removed fascination of a casual
observer – as your wrists
surface instead, and
twist to
expose the protrusion
of twin
marbles
at the bases of
hands

extending – suddenly
too long,
too
taut, too
skeletal – and
contracting.

All at once, you’re
close-mouthed
control disintegrating
into
the hard points and
slopes of
abrupt,
unfamiliar
angles, and

it starts:
wrists sharp and
hands tendoned to tentacled
fingers, splayed, probing
the new bone of
elbows bruising past tangent
hips,
ascending the
ribcage
staircase
carved from
evaporated
flesh
to reach
(yes, only now) cheeks
razored to
fierce,
determined
concavity by the
precision
of
your
own
(un)doing.

it
ends
