    The Prestige

    ★★

    I forget everything once I 
    turn the shower radio on; 

    it says I have ten minutes
    to feel better about today,
    but I just don’t think that’s
    enough.

  • Personal Problems

    Personal Problems

    ★★★★½

    Gluing fragments to the ceiling, watching 
    what shape they take—lemonade & Lenox,
    Craigslist ads, your old clothes, Harlem in
    the 80s, how you never wanted to leave it,
    our problems with screenplays, the canon,
    still, & (so much more I wish I could relay). 

    Now I’m trying to call you because I forget
    how to write, or string together sentences
    that make some sort of sense, or even use
    punctuation the right way we were taught.
    So it goes! 

    With any two people that don’t keep good
    touch, there‘s bound to be years of phone 
    tag, voicemails, then hearsay of whoever’s
    funeral has finally come first.

    Veslemøy's Song

    ★★★★

    I used to do research for Criterion at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. Once, while waiting for some microfilm to be brought up to me from the archives, I wrote this on a piece of paper:

    “How can I extract the atoms of my dreams,
    so that I may stamp & clear them for reality?”

    ★★★★½

    I am everyone I have ever met.
