leakage

it has been good to go back to the movies
after a long hiatus
it has been nice to return to the dark rooms i love so much
i didn't know why i didn't want to go to the movies or even watch a movie
for awhile i was turned off from seeing violence
having watched an episode of the wire too soon after my grandparents' deaths
but after watching two in two days,
two which both stayed with me long after the credits,
 i remembered why
movies pluck those chords of mine that i keep tucked away, beneath my ribs
movies make me feel
but after that week in may, i felt like all the feelings were firing all the time
swimming at the surface
ready to spill over any moment

i was afraid of watching a movie for fear of what would leak out.
there is still some leakage
but sometimes i think a little leak might be a good thing.

i'm like a leakage expert. i know how to make a leak even when the faucet isn't broken
