Poet Bio

Resist,
I am falling out of existence.

Resist,
the urge to be a non-being
Traveling along a white line.

Resist
the deadening weight
in your bones, stifling the
conflagration in your cavernous chest.

Resist
the weightless charm
of the panoramic pull,
each atom flaring indignantly,
that seeks to suck you smooth.

For without edges,
how can you ever know or be known?
