POEMS

 every emotion
is an image
the Incredible Hulk
taught us that
your face
being erased
in my mind
as survival
the way
cuttlefish
remember when
we exist
as two disembodied smiles
that seem to say
“let’s rob a bank together”
at the party
I try
to explain
how the ultimate erasure
is murder
then shut up
like a genius
a bridge
burns
between us the only art is desire
