It was a sunny day on the coast of Ascension Island, the absolute middle of the Atlantic ocean. A 10 years old, half English half Sri Lankan boy went to give a hand to the hatching turtules in the natural reserve near by the main town and only town: Georgetown…
She wakes up, wrestling pillows, where is my hug?
Do we know each other? We forgot. Too many thoughts, who could remember.
Last night, curious penetrating looks.. is this ‘the hookup plan’ or maybe just a friend?
Bathroom, I come back, needless to guess.
She’s sitting, half…
Sucking an olive seed, some sort of therapeutic earthy candy.. helps me to think not clearer but with less added sugar.
Rolling on my skates, noises of wheels kissing old tar road cracking from hot-cold temp drops, like my mood swings.
This old lady, I often cross paths with…
I ran out of thoughts, so made coffee until your disembarkation was canceled.
Then came up with your own words of refuge, protecting the door from an undesired sunset on a breakup, at least it seems to be with your overweight soul, who is going to fly with you?

Ocean, where are the blues?
Conveniently, I reached the…
We used to
Swim in courage liquid
The Chinese border
Searching for sex
Across the river

Inspired greatly by Elbow — Any Day Now/Powder Blue/Newborn
Drums bassing, guitar tuning, vocal-cords reversing:

Pounding outside the gate of thought, breaks.
Emotions licking a microphone like oreo-cookie-vanilla ice cream.
Tracing the scars
Pulling the blinds
Now unkiss me
And play our…
The judge concluded a verdict in partial remorse.
I know what it meant.
Shedding a tear privately, within my drying laryngospasm, swallowing each innocent drop, gently, to maintain my stature, dignified.
“Convicted for first degree: misunderstanding love”
“You have the right to mitigate circumstances or say last words…
