If you want me to disappear…

If you want me to dry your tears
I will do that for you
If you want me to disappear
I will do that too

If you wanted to fly
I would tell you to try
I would give you my wings
And give gravity the day off

If you wanted to hide
I would take you inside
My faraway place
Nobody can find

If you wanted to dance
In your leopard skin pants
I would find a club
Where they play your favorite song

If you wanted to sleep
A hundred miles deep
I’d make the world still
And sing you a lullabye

If you want the rest of my years
I will give them to you
If you want me to disappear

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 various publications, including Subterranean Blue Poetry, The Journal of Microfiction, and Sick Lit Magazine. 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.
