Exposure

After all; I am Possessive.   I should. Be alone. It stings. A year. Before. I’m grown.   Listen to the wicked wave hiss. It creeps up; whores. I’m bare as a white sheet.

Abeyance

You gleaming like water evaporated by cause, I blew the chalk dust from my hands, Late on his deed, it was done, It became another clown prince dream, For us, time was a myth. Under the street lights at night, The fine art of the distant moon mirrors my empty hands, Hands that bled at […]

wish

Where does sound go & when does it stop? [Note to self: research this]   I saw a boy with his hands torn off – a still, on impact.   The next shot is a girl opened wide; the mouth, the eyes call – .   The moment solidifies, is livid, remains what it is […]

filled

filled     for Keikei   heard in the warmth the leak of cricket into summer a tap of darkness that can never be turned off the more you try the more it trickles soaking up through the dry grass of the hill and the wind filled us with secrets our hands told each to […]

starvation

suffering gives reason to believe & not to. i’m bedevilled meanwhile   by symbols, images of death, martyrdom, memory, the clump   of body blows, curved steel on flesh; the severing of a boy’s   consciousness. i choose not,   not because it’s rational, but as protest.   i have striven not for correctness, philosophic […]

Let’s walk back..

Hold my hand, Let’s walk back.. Along the brinks of memories Across the rivers of tears Over the petals of hopes Under the clouds of dreams Passing through Harsh winter Lonely autumn Tear-filled summer The warmth of love in colorful spring To where we met To rewrite the moments Let’s walk back..

going somewhere?

The cat’s fur lights the dark on the other side of the glass. Her tail   disappears, like a swish white dress or a   fish, infinitely Dear – darkness   shows me …   Decidedly, I’m pre-Aquarian. I tell you I have flown   over sea & mountain. During the brandy, half dead,   […]

on the idea of death

It comes; the tongue would penetrate, string her up but never does; rolls instead the pearl, & lingers there.   2 The cat, for instance, has her mind shut to it. Granted, the tail flickers & her ears twitch as if she’s heard death’s shadow; next minute   tho she knows nothing.   3   […]

hAUNTED mIRROR

Oh haunted mirror I am on the wall, while you look at me I see the score, I’ve been watching you and your family for a decade or more. Oh haunted mirror I am on the wall, is that movement out the corner of your eye, or is that just me watching you go by. […]

Love Without Knowing

If I got up and left for good would you cry would you stop and wonder why? Would you stain your pillow with your tears, would you be hollow inside for years? Would you miss the true friend who is always there, could you enjoy not having words from lips of the one that really […]

High Up A Church

The man on a ladder is no friend of God though he is high on a church’ s side. He scrapes and paints, and the bare boards are turning white. He was, he said, bored, and the church, God bless the Anglicans, was looking sad. It was moved here for preservation. Its little town shrank […]

Head Full of Ache

In the middle of the town With a head full of ache My heart’s sinking low Spirit on ebb. Talk to me, make me sane I’m losing it all and I’m to blame. The street’s closing in. The doors shutting. It is just me, or has the wind turned? Stay with me, today and tomorrow; […]
