your-methamphetamine writes poetry that punches the reader in the gut. It is heart-wrenchingly real, and it never fails to move me. It is evocative and poignant, getting the truth of the matter in both astounding and unsurprising, both straight-forward and back-alley entrances: she utilizes all of these approaches and leaves the reader gasping, breathless for more. Check out her gallery!!

your-methamphetamine creates a new world with each piece the pens. It's as if she opened a door into her mind and is letting you view her intimate thoughts. The images in each of her writings are gorgeous beyond measure, letting the reader visualize perfectly what she is trying to convey, and imagine exactly what feelings she had when she was writing the piece.

your-methamphetamine writes with amazing intrigue. Her pieces are at once heartwrenchingly revealing and mysterious – they beg to be read and reread until the lovely haze is cleared leaving the characters exposed and related to. The words fit together as if they could not be arranged any other way which lends a natural cadence to them.

I fancy myself a youth slam poet, guilty of falling in love with the unfamiliar. I have been published over at The Missing Slate, Modern Day Fairy Tales and cahoodaloodaling. my first spoken word album, the articulation of my vertebrae is now available for download on my bandcamp! go get your copy!

I heard Rudy quiver 
and guide lost oxygen 
to his cells when he said, 
"my biggest fear
is that one day 
I will hear about 
a black boy dying 
and I won’t flinch.” and when I did
I flinched
I hurt
I tore open the skin beneath
these chipped nailbeds
just to remember
what loss looked like

nothing
feels like loss
anymore

our shoulders depressed
with a hundred
and thirty two voids 
weighing down like anvils
your shoulders 
carry the heaviest coffins

our feet walk unjust
soil parted by waters
we haven’t polluted yet
but our hearts,
with their social arrhythmias
and rich flutters, ache
with one vigor
one lacrymal loss
one dark sob
after another

one fleeting life
after another

don’t let another slip these
bleeding fingertips
hold on to this steady heartbeat
and the rest only microseconds
apart

vindicate your unjust soil, the nails
hammered into each coffin, 
deaths zooming by deaf ears
hold your ears to shame

hold on to your hurt
with every drop that leaves your fingers, 
flinch
hurt
think of the lives you colored
by staying and stained
if you ever left

fuel your anger till your body
remembers to wheeze
through the sting every loss
leaves you with
this heart does not experience
fatigue, it does not know
rest; this is your reason
to remember black days

when you are beat down 
to slow, forced heartbeats
shot out of the sky
soaring, screaming with angels
with everything 
but wings

live to love and ache
another day,
all the same.

never forget. 
never stop feeling. 

I hurt. I died 132 times yesterday. today.

one look and a shy half away
the fogged window to the left
unveils a split second warmth

you fill me, your beta-rays consume
my eager form to five missing facial
muscles deepening with every move

yes, wormholes can be spheres but
cylinders make sense too, save for 
their lost sense of distance, dimension

time and us. I don’t wish for galactic
wars for you. there is a balance we 
made a home in, an embroidered

version of the cosmos that fits between
your mountainous knuckles when we
kiss. I kissed your in-betweens because

you already love your wholes. one look
and a shivering half away, I planned so
much more for your hands and mine, my

eyes and your entirety. I will have lived 
a thousand mornings in your arms by 
sunrise; you woke me in each one.

interstellar
i count every minute longer than looped evers
on the worst of earthly spins; you are the reason
i would stay awake and stay asleep and
stay.

a. dictitious

i
am well-woven.

i
am a spell
that does not release
and never tells.

these constructions
allow,
and better
awaken
to speak in hearttones
and hymnbeats
on rugged pavements.

i
have built
art.


b.bahaar 

this body has
forgotten its infinite
beatingsdenied
itself the luxury
of acceptance.

this body has
remembered its lovers'
last namesphone numbers,
birthmarks and kindness--

the only cruelty this vessel knows
is from its middles;


have riddled 
myself into
warmth


c. capabuilt

these hands
are imbued
with patient dynamism
and ichor
that the goddesses
savor. 

they have moved
mountain ranges
and hoisted dark seas
overhead,
then returned them
deftly. 

such instruments deserve more
than my doubts;

i
have clouded
the veins tenacious. 


d. aitbaar

allowed these
hands 
to hold me.

i have yet to feel
like less
than a Dali
dream,

my little ashes
are coming close.

the Ganges
lost its 
murk
to me; i carry
remains
house 
brokenness
till it is perfected
kintsugi.


am 
gold--


am gold
and nothing less.
ways we constellate
thinking out loud and generally being amazing with gliitchlord
