Formulaic – Response to Angel Olsen’s “California”


Your eyes candlelit, blazing

I’ve lit a fire for you


Oh the fumbling of hands we share, here

The fumbling of elements many have felt

And I wonder if I am any different–


A trundled body of mistaken chemicals

Brash, raw–



I wish to learn the angles

To love
