dehumanized:
I am a stirring in the breath
of an unswept sky, an itch
in the throat, a tear in
the lining of the sleeve you
keep fingering- like reminiscence
will repair loose strands

(I woke up this morning
in a new carcass, trapped,
by fleshed out flaws and
dismal dreams and the
hush hush thrum ,steady,
[pulsations are riddled with
intent] of my veins)

I am the dents in the floorboard
where boxes of I-can-never-forgets
lay, I am the aching cold of walls
untouched, I am the callouses
of your fingers forgetting
how to work.

(my voice will melt the icecaps,
it will draw all salt from
the ocean and carve a careful
coffin of carnal desires)

I am a cry cut short
in the home of the deaf-
I am skin, I am loose
sinew and sincerities mistakenly
stitched to the bones of a crow

and when the night clears I am
nothing but doll eyelashes and
spider legs, [at the end of the day
the two are indistinguishable]

I am nothing
I have no name.

Hoo boy, that alliteration.
I particularly love the comparison of doll eyelashes and spider legs - gloriously creepy and empty-feeling. Also, the first two stanzas are beautiful.

I need to stop waiting until you have a STACK of poems for me to read, before reading them! xD
I read them all one after the other and by halfway through, my brain is going, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING D:".
