Claustrophobia is

window allowing entry

to unknowns who skid or scooter

past in rain-sun, unknowing.

 

Claustrophobia is

beads-of-breath

cord-in-jugular

the empress drowned in a bath of ugly

why-i-am-inside-a-glass

whileeveryoneelseisjusthappyit’sover

autumn pianos let me breathe, breathe, breathe down

the staircase (descending thirds? Pachelbel inversions?)

unlooking in eyes

pls dn’t look at me

b/c in the jacaranda parade

of applause, the summer trust-lines

between so-many-eyes I am

swept like stew in the storm of a spoon

the-empress-in-the-bath-naked-on-the-Internet-in-suicide

walk the tight-

-rope of my sinews

nothing new

i’m-running-out-of-room

no one sees me

still i’m begging

no one

to not see

me
