all windows can open

charles theonia

we’re on the waiting list to enter the conscious world

friends pass in and out of us and one another

which is pressed too close to you to see

the line is an unstable container

an intimacy of forgetting what belongs to whom

in the orbital sociality of a cat xx demanding and receding

so that i’m removed from you in the moment of

thinking us xx obsession is bad for productivity

better for rewiring the sex circuit’s limits

the non-human expression of our presence

it is site-specific if the site is dreams

This is a pencil drawing of a window, with the phrase "all windows can open Bernadette (Utopia)" written at the bottom.
