In a few seconds, I'm going to be a bonafide father. That is, if my wife can finally squeeze out the little devil out of her vagina.
"Martin! Marty! Why the hell are you there?!" My wife should be the most beautiful person in this moment yet there she is, sweating and screaming like a pig. Her legs are opened wide, enough for the doctor and his nurse to huddle in, waiting for the baby. All the while, I stand at one corner, watching the baby's crown appear, sink then reappear again.
It looks like a horror movie.
To be honest, I don't want to come anywhere near even as I want to console my wife. I am freaked out. I am high and freaked out. I am having a bad trip on the day my child is born.
"Honey," I call out, "hon, you're doing great."
"Get the fuck in here, Martin. I swear to God..!"
"Baby, I can't. I can't."
The nurse looks at me oddly so I sheepishly smile, "Blood makes me nauseous."
Well, it doesn't. But I bet my paled face and sweaty brows make it seem convincing enough t

we are crumbling
so gracefully-- unspoken
thoughts and misguided words
we barely know the reason behind--
just as we watch
our hands relently untwine
every time-- each fearing
it will be the last.

what makes me sick
guided by your sickness,
i vomit all of the rest
of my sexuality
onto the dance floor--
i wanted to stop or
just carry my guts
out of here and to a
romance for two
people you can stomach more--
i no longer
know what i'm looking for.

Barber's Tale
It is a Tuesday afternoon, light reaching everywhere it can get. Sunlight sweeps in a barber shop. It reflects on the single oval mirror hanging on the parlour wall and spills a rainbow on the clean, tiled floor. The barber, neatly pinched in his shirt and pants, adjusts his glasses as he brushes the singular barber chair in front of the mirror. He hums to himself, an old tune he learned from his father, to pass the time. The clock on the wall times a beat along it.
The door whines.
"G'day, sir," the barber greets, not letting his eyes leave the seat just yet. "Just a moment, if you please. I'd like to make sure the chair is spic and span before a customer sits on it."
He pauses for a moment, waiting for an answer. Nothing. With a final swipe on the armrest, he turns around and smiles politely.
A heavyset man stands opposite him. His cheeks are plump and flushed, dotted with beads of sweat which he mops with a hankerchief he pulled from his stained overalls. He looks nervous and unsure

two thirty nine,
the dust disperses and slowly
settles around you after
you throw your body
onto the couch, clothes and shoes
and all--
you do not know
what to expect
but you close
your eyes anyway
and hope to dream
something good.
two forty three,
you are still
wide awake.

All you did was cover
your nudity that is
your mouth
that scares the shit out
of me along with your god
complex, insomia, and
suicidal manic episodes
that go a long way if fueled
with smoke
and existential questions
like why is your face yours to
phase in tune with
what the screen indicates
and advertises in a
subtle addiction to the
corporate handshakes
and ass to lips contact
--all there is,
figuratively, that is.
I'm stuck
but it figures;
dominance is

Random Favourites

dampened in half-lit
lapses of judgment's purview;
there is no saving.
earth's helm is breaking
to reveal her tepid core
and the milkiest vocals cry

these ends are meaningful
in that their means
aren't cruel.

you will bleed blame

your body is aether

keep the demons;
you will know they are ready

pool on the ceiling
and nebulae at your feet;
drunk on the course
of the wandering planets.
i've been honoring damage
that i received at formation,
etching deeper the sins
in my xiphisternum.
o, the burn of the cones
in my vision stings sweetly
like eden,
or worse.
the blank galaxies
that explode in my chest
are so gorgeous
i don't even notice
my rot.

Why I love macro photography
In case you haven’t noticed it yet, I may have an interest in macrophotography :paranoid:
First of all, here is a definition, by MarcosRodriguez of macro photography: "A Macro photograph shows a subject that is life size compared to the size of the negative of a SLR or sensor in a Full Frame DSLR, that's a 1:1 reproduction ratio aspect. […] Often a ratio aspect of 1:2 is also considered Macro, although that ratio shows subjects which life size is half of the size compared to the negative or sensor, I prefer to call those pictures Close-up photographies." (quote from here)
But why do I love it so much? In order to answer that question, I asked for the help of some other macro lovers:

Because it makes you discover a wh

you're the first person
to have ever made me feel,
when you kissed me,
however faint
the brush of your lips
on my cheek was,
i felt the electricity.
a couple months later,
you still run my mind ragged.
jagged jumps
from one corner
to the next,
you splice my thoughts
like commas,
splitting full stops
in two.
into something
i never expected,

about 5'2''
with a shadow of
about 5'11''.
didn't think much
of it until i met you
on new year's
and we talked fears,
new gears, and last year.
never did i expect
to think much of you.
but i did.
never did i expect
to be single after the fifth.
but i was.
never did i expect
you to break up with him,
two weeks later.
but you did.
never did i expect you,
woman of intangible explosions,
tangible expulsions of

you are a code
i'm unraveling
in a place, least expected.
