into the deathmongering
don’t be a charmer

the moon eats your face
it’s a cut into the fire
an outgrown orchid
the young girl’s moon

Don’t look for me
I won’t look for you.

  5. Lucy, I seriously feel like I need some exegesis on many of your poems, including this one. It’s fascinating – I know it’s beautiful, I can feel that it’s beautiful, but I am so often not quite sure what it’s about!

  6. So short and yet so crisp and lovely! I love the imagery; the feelings and lives packed into the exacting words and the little piece of love it steals out of me.

  11. Thieves are so often charmers. I enjoy being befuddled by the narratives you present, Lucy. A feeling of something being so over, it needs a new word for over. ❤
