Wow. A cutting piece that captures well the physical and maybe mental chaos between two people who may not love each other anymore and yet cannot let go of each other for fear of being alone. Your way with words is amazing. I am more than glad that you are back to PnQ! Welcome home.
Thomas, I loved this! Your visuals are so raw, it spun this write into that direction of desperation of two souls attempting to even be in the same room with each other and not kill the other one. Well done-welcome back also-I look forward to more of your poems-
Raw and unique in your visuals. No one can write your experience and perspective but you. Thank you for sharing some of this realness. There's the hesitancy in words unsaid, the stories violently told throughout the apartment, and the underlying fear that somehow unites you both. Powerful.
