You Are Not Just the Love of My Life

You are not just the love of my life
(if only it were that simple)
You are the love of all my lives
And my eternal life
Ours is the love that points at death and laughs
Ours is the love that makes it hard to think clearly
From the opposite of intoxication
Even in this degraded state I would
Swear on every life I’ve known
That yours is the light that will cut through the fog
At the end
And after that

Named one of New York's Best Emerging Poets 2019, my poetry chapbook The New Normal was published by Analog Submission Press. My novel The Zoo was published by Cacoethes Publishing House. Other poems and short stories have appeared in Subterranean Blue Poetry, The Journal of Microfiction, and Sick Lit Magazine, among others. Other works include a staged reading of my play Digging Up John Barrymore, performed by Dreamcatcher Entertainment, and five albums of original music recorded with my band Late Model Humans.
