"I have wished you dead and myself dead,
How could it be otherwise.
I have broken into you like a burglar
And you’ve set your dogs on me.
You have been a hurricane to me
And a pile of broken sticks
A child could kick.
I have climbed you like a monument, gasping,
For the exercise and the view,
And leaned over the railing at the top–
Strong and warm, that summer wind."

Alicia Ostriker, “Years” (via grammatolatry)

"In my head there’s just the one poem and it’s all about you. It makes you feel weird sometimes, paranoid, like you’re being watched by something you cannot see. It’s kind of like a movie about aliens with high-powered rifles for eyes. Or like when god peers down from his cloud into a tide pool and sees all those spoiled rich kids slamming their groins together, and he marvels at the precious ache within their haircuts."

Bob Schofield, “Tour of My Head,” published in Shabby Doll House (via bostonpoetryslam)

"there are lots of yous in this poem and one of them is you," by john mortara, published in Shabby Doll House.

Watch this poem & perhaps feel that thin-stringed connectedness that technology gives us & remember the text messages you were happy to get but didn’t think to remember them then & tell the people that love you that you are thankful they love you & just keep going.

please watch this poem video i made for you.

then watch all the other amazing videos in the surprise shabby doll house spring issue entitled ‘doll revolution.’

"The moment
you can’t have back. One word
not heard at the crook of a confession.”
-Amy Meckler, from “Slipping Glimpser"
