This girl I knew.There was this girl I knew,
Her hair all curly and strewn.
On these grounds, she was far from new,
as we all noticed her eyes of such vibrant hue.
Yet to her there was a quiet mien,
one that could never be screened.
Expressions of such silent themes,
to us it might be impossible it seems.
She always had a doll in her hands,
it's hair she could plaid in a matter of ten.
Although she would roam the street weeks on end,
No one ever knew from where she went?
Perhaps, she lived in a place beyond our land,
and left for it only when we were sleeping in our dens.
We could poke,
but she never spoke,
leaving us alone in her mysterious code.

on a quiet street where people seldom come by.

bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
