Jack Bachmann

13 May Jack Bachmann

you are in a place with something in your hands and you’re reading

 

————–i once wrote out a list
——-of places it would be nice to
kiss u ————but i don’t think
———we will ever be anywhere
————–listed. for 2 reasons
——————–first, none of the places
———————————-were real
————————this was by design
—————————most likely, but
———almost certainly whimsy because
second, i was never sure who
u r/were/are
or is it you?
ur just sitting reading
this in yr hands

 

BURN YR </3 OUT

 

i am sitting in the park watching and listening to the birds
just performing bread tricks and whistling fancy, just chirping
for the birds all just pecking at the dirty ground

there are clouds rolling over
and every pedestrian is dosing on sunbeams.

i last saw him in the bottom of the creek, dancing
two steps ahead of the beat
syncopated with the birds
laying on the porch

a box of matches next
to a potion of milk ash
everything dissolves, it is all okay

 


 

Jack Bachmann is going to marry the moon one day. He was in Potluck once and instagrams @yaboisasquatch.
