Really, though, I'm probably way to sleep deprived to post this. I was probably too sleep deprived to even write it. And I'm definitely too sleep deprived to write this-- I just made about 11 hundred typos. Like slepp. And splep. And a bunch of others that you're probably just not interested in. You probably weren't interested in slepp or splep, either, and you're probably not finding this funny. But I have had basically no sleep in the last two days, and tonight isn't looking that good either, and this is entertaining me, dammit.
For serious, though (for serious..) what do you guys think? Do you like it? What do you get from it, if anything? How could I make it better? And stuff like that.
there’s a place
that exists only in the deepest corners of your sighs,
and in the flexings of your breath.
the people there,
or whatever they are,
sail through the rippling currents of your exhales
over and over again
and they never leave you.
they whisper memories when you need them
hiding in the tiny pockets of air they find in your chest
as you wait to be shipwrecked.
you’ll never know them
so you'll never be able to see
them breathing, just sometimes, air into their own stories
hidden in blurry blue flecks of beach glass.
