but you knowHe sits down next to you in the bus and your life is
You are looking away but
you can see his reflection in the window -
it deconstructs itself,
a freckle under his right eye,
and the flecks of silver in his irises.
And then he looks out the window too and
he can't be looking at you, he can't he can't,
but the light plays tricks - it always does -
the reflection of his pupils shoots like a laser right into
he's humming your favourite song.
the change, the space you didn't know existed:
it's a thousand questions
a million details
He reaches across you to press the button to make the bus stop -
for him to be able to stop a bus with one finger, isn't that amazing? -
and as he draws back he brushes your hair with his sleeve
just his sleeve
and his hand draws your eyes to him like an invisible string.
And he smiles at you and says,
In an instant you realize you will never know
whether he hates airplane rides or
And Now I Can Lie to YouYou told me you liked butterflies
but the ones in my stomach flutter up my throat
every time I try to say I like them too.
So I caught the last butterfly as it flew out of my mouth
and stabbed it through the heart with a pin
and tacked it to a board
and as you watched it twitch and die
you told me you didn't like butterflies anymore.
If You Cannot Hear Me SpeakI hold the telephone against my ear
pressing it closer
waiting to hear your whisper
but you do not love me.
If you cannot hear me speak
then I will write to you.
But you will have to let go of my hands
as I clutch the pencil with shaking fingers
and bring it to the paper
and I can't write the words
because they are not true.
As my writing falters and fails
I'll drop my pencil, so listen to my hands.
They roam across your skin leaving trails of
your fingers leave trails of
When my wrists are bound
heed my lips and tongue
as I greedily absorb all that is
you and your taste
since you won't give me your heart.
The Seasons of You and Me1. Everything is up in fire
as you are leaving and
the trees seem to reflect
the last of the glorious dying sun.
2. I watch great clumps of snow tumble
from the blank sky into the blank world
and I stick my tongue out and
catch flakes alone.
3. All decked out in rubber boots and
yellow raincoats, we jump
from puddle to mud puddle and
push baby tulips into the soil.
4. Let's lie in the grass in our
shorts and Ts and wish upon
shooting stars that we'll be like this
promise me something?
talk to me and
be my friend and
dance with me?
visit me every day and
always bring me flowers and
hug me and
kiss me and
be with me forever?
say you love me and
give everything for me and
take my heart and
care for it like your own?
buy me a ring and
slip it on my finger and
bind yourself to me?
make sure I die before you and
lie next to me in my grave?
go back on your word?
ReflectionsVal's pursuit led him to the foul beast's domain. The hollowed-out cavern reeked of blood and rancid meat. The dim light he had seen as he charged through the tunnel after the monster could now be identified: torches. Rows of mysteriously lit torches lined the walls of the huge cave. At its center was a substantially large labyrinth of mirrors.
He spotted the beast entering.
He spun his silver broadsword in his hand and hurried in behind it.
His garb was a simple blue and white crusader's leather with thick armored pads and reinforcing steel studs. Lightweight and flexible, but quite effective defense against blunt blows and – in a pinch – the slashing claws of the unholy spawn of the earth. All monster-hunters wore a similar variety in Val's experience. It would serve him well in these close quarters of the mirrored maze.
Right, left, forward, left, right he turned, always catching a glimpse of the beast's tail as he wove his way through the corridors. Every so often he sp
