"Brownstone Rapture" by Moly Tov
 

A significant stain 

should be cherished

not scrubbed

 

its evidence 

of something happening 

like moss collecting on rocks 

 

that tumble 

with momentum 

into a slide—

 

but even the devil 

can be washed over

with the accumulation of time

 

exposure erodes everything 

so why add to the nothing 
when we all return to it anyway.

 

"Blossom" by Moly Tov
 

Broken capillaries blossom 

in the flesh along the nape of your neck

and I want to run a finger

over the ley lines 

that make you SO...

                                     FUCKING…  

                                                             BEAUTIFUL.
