1. BUSTED

there used to be parchment
beneath my skin,
kept for safekeeping
and those bouts of suddenness
you called inspiration.
i guess it dissolved
when we swam together
and sunk like shipwrecks into the brine
until we pickled and you grew gills
which i couldn't comprehend.
lack of air drove my bubbling lungs to
bursting.
loss of me drove you to bury yourself,
under the silt,
a constant companion to a .48
that refused to rust
or disintegrate
like my paper bones.
