Dollhouses & War

The first attempt at proper poetry and the next and the next.
"Not a tea stain, but a rain stain,"
"Does my heart tangle like headphones in a pocket?"
"...mascara tears registers exhilaration under rapid music beats. "
"Love is the only blood we will bleed as / Together we fall into a rainstorm."


24. Blue Birds



There ain't no blue birds in the world.

They are the work of disney.

Want to know why? 

Because they tell us of fiction

and fantasy

and fun.

Blue birds mean romance 

and wonder,

and no one can tell you otherwise. 

Perhaps it should be blue birds instead 

of butterflies in stomachs. 

Blue birds are hope of things to come. 

The locked lockets we keep in our brains

waiting to be opened 

and sprout wishful 


Maybe if blue birds existed 

we would change them into something they are 


Into white birds, 

and black birds

and autumn leaves 

and physical things,

abandoning hope

and childhood

and love 

as we did so.
