because upon arrest the ocean sits with
but never occupies

because when I woke the anarchists
were demanding suffrage from heaven

because the news announced whale bones
pulled from a mountain in turkey

because i went to the liquor store
and the missing posters were gone

because every noise the city makes
is a foreign language falling extinct
Beleaguered republic series.

God. I'm sorry I never commented or looked more into or read even, your poetry. You have such power in your hands and I had it right under my nose and never looked because I am a dumb bitch. You are just what I'm looking for as if that matters, this fix, someone somewhere who agrees with me in California because everyone is just opposite of this poem. This isn't making any sense. Let me try again.

I feel you, feel this, so much. And I'm too overexcited and it's been a few days since I've read, but, yeah. This makes a lot of sense, and it's real, and not much is anymore. But I see you, and I see the sea and I see the anarchists. I see the extinction, imminent and looming.

I apologize for the blehcksj of this comment. But, yeah. This is great.
Thank you, darlin. I do appreciate your kind words and I'm glad you enjoy my words.

your poems are starting to mesh.
if you were to put together the last 8 pieces you've submitted,
it could work just as one long-ass poem.

not a bad thing
