Teardrop

What they say about you isn’t true. You wouldn’t do that. You wouldn’t do that thing. A man you never knew is some friend of your friend’s. I told him how I think about how your life ended and he held my hand across the table (I didn’t say he could touch me). He said, “My friends knew him and they don’t think…

As if I had never heard this before.

“…they don’t think it was an accident.”

It was like he was giving me the delicate present of this idea, one I left among crumpled paper ages ago. Fuck men who think they can tell you things you already know. Such as: the ambiguity of your movements, and the type who wades into a river drunk at night. I was that type on the beach before. I kept a sleeping bag in the trunk of my car. I thought nothing of those suicide missions in moonlight, while you sipped from a sandy bottle, your image of me getting smaller and blacker as I took methodical steps toward the sea. 

(This is flash fan fiction about the romance between musicians Jeff Buckley and Elizabeth Fraser).

Notes

Woah. I can’t believe I still know how to do this. I can’t believe it’s been 20 years. If I could get onto the server I used to use, ten bucks says the same dudes are still there. When I was 16 and complaining about something, somebody said “Listen, this is the worst age. You want to be 21 and your parents want you to be 10.” That stuck with me forever!

Birdwings

Your grief for what you’ve lost lifts a mirror
up to where you’re bravely working.

Expecting the worst, you look, and instead,
here’s the joyful face you’ve been wanting to see.

Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes.
if it were always a fist or always stretched open,
you would be paralyzed.

Your deepest presence is in every small contracting
and expanding,
The two as beautifully balanced and coordinated
as birdwings.

-Rumi

"All a girl really wants is for one guy to prove to her that they are not all the same." -Marilyn
I feel extra happy for my dude today. He’s been so encouraging while I chase all kinds of rainbows, and I love to see him get excited when he’s teaching me how to do something new.
