Please forget to remind me of sex

Please forget to remind me of sex
And the dirty illegal moves I used to remember
As yours

Please try and push them away
Out of my newly flat days
When Mondays form out of the same minutes
Last week used

Please tell me to give up
Because even after the arrest
I’ll still try and rekindle
The saving that’s there

Please don’t make a lesson out of me
I’d do what most people do
If I could
I’m not trying to save the world anymore
Just a few blocks

Please feel free to contact me
When I’m dealing with winter
So the frost along my nails
Will be filed down for visitors

Please lose track of time
Because it’s damning anyone
Who doesn’t

Please write
I won’t find your hands if you type

Please grasp that a lot of what you know
About me
Isn’t going to survive
But I’ll try my best to keep at
Whatever you fell in love with

I’ll see you soon
If not within the platitudes

He’s not one person
by Zachary Robert

He’s not one person
He’s all over
In the park
In the office next door
In the crest of your theta brain waves

Always impossible
Never permitting an approach by me
But it’s getting to a point where I don’t want folkways
To win

When a tragedy needs death
Or a Bosie needs Wilde
I start to think of what’s necessary to me
Or the smooth skin I can only imagine feels like
Your hairless back
Or the part of your neck that stops growing beard
Or the crayons you played with as a child

Let the family rating end
And do what has survived within
Before history tamed the being

Civilization I can relate to
And mimosas will always taste good
But when I can’t tell people I love them
And when they can’t tell me
Forget it
I can drink from the rivers
