suicide in very small rivers


the woman of my
dreams tapes extra razorblades to her thighs
in case the first try fails

she slices up and thinks of rivers
and me
some strange foreigner with a cigarette and corduroys
and curls under a red sky
a red hat

the man she never dreamed about
me
sits in bathtubs slicing across
waiting to be discovered
bye
buy
by the person he writes about when the world pretends to be busy sleeping

  1. WOW!!!!!!! That was….I don’t know how to describe how I feel reading that. At some point I think wow the love they felt for each other, they each desired one another so bad but couldn’t be together so they decided that the only way to be together was in death. But as I read it over again I realize that maybe this is his way of rationalizing or explaining why he commit suicide. He dreams of someone who loves him so much that she will take her own life, but he know he will never have someone to love him that way or that much so he takes his own life. You are truly an AMAZING writer and I can’t wait to purchase your work!
