“I want a trouble-maker for a lover,
Blood spiller, blood drinker, a heart of flame,
Who quarrels with the sky and fights with fate,
Who burns like fire on the rushing sea.”
– Rumi

Once upon a time there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. And they grew next to each other. And every day the straight tree would look at the crooked tree and he would say, “You’re crooked. You’ve always been crooked and you’ll continue to be crooked. But look at me! Look at me!” said the straight tree. He said, “I’m tall and I’m straight.” And then one day the lumberjacks came into the forest and looked around, and the manager in charge said, “Cut all the straight trees.” And that crooked tree is still there to this day, growing strong and growing strange.

–Tom Waits, in Wristcutters: A Love Story

Dance toward me, please, as
if you were a star
with light-years piled
on top of your hair,

And I will dance toward you
as if I were darkness
with bats piled like a hat
    on top of my head.

~ Richard Brautigan, A Mid-February Sky Dance

I loved you within a moment
You put your head down on
Your folded arms and exclaimed
That you were so excited

I loved you within two days
Your breath whiskey and cigarettes asked
“Wanna make out?” and I said
“Yes, but not right now.”

I loved you within a week
You told me about your father
Your ideas your desires your conflicts you
Laid on top of me and we

I loved you within a month
You found the love of your life
Your guilt fear brought you quick to anger I
Forgive us both I understand now

I loved you within this life
Your soul’s impact our brief time
The gifts just keep expanding inside
As gratitude

You said you stripped yourself to your core
You said those people are simple
You said they kill them
You said your brother is the hero
You said thank you
You said you spill your guts to her
You said it scares you
You said you already know she’s the mother of your children
You said you weren’t sure if you wanted children
You asked if I know how you feel about me
You said you were getting angry
You said sorry
You said your prior girlfriends thought that position was less intimate
You said I should sit on a bunch before I decide
You said mine will be better than yours
You said you don’t care about that
You said you dug it up out of the dirt and ashes
You said that you couldn’t tell me how you feel about me
You said that I am a badass
You said that you were proud to walk next to me
You said you’d love to
You said that I need to chill the fuck out
You said relationships are in our minds
You said I should let you chase me for a change
You asked if I was sad

You told me your stories
