1. Poem: night lines : she captured distant stars / and fireflies / in cracking bell jars

  2. Poem: live entertainment : i let her write her number on my napkin, / and promise we’ll go out dancing

  3. Poem: i want you to know one thing : I would rather stand and shine / in smoke and ashes.

  4. Poem: confessional : she said she could be silent

  5. Poem: transference : Or maybe it makes them feel pretty. / I don’t know.

  6. Poem: syllabic : tells you the earth moved you / did all the moving the earth / stood still but you

  7. Poem: some nights i miss the milky way : i like being a thrill. / it’s easy not to remember.

  8. Poem: mastery : i would serve a Master / if she were / silent, from a shadow
