(spring storm)

Thunder, my top hat.
Lightning pinstripes slick-sheened limbs.
I am dressed with rain.

(lest ye be judged)

Do not judge that man,
Who falls deep asleep in church.
Perhaps he dreams God.

Boy you toy with me.
Douse me in warm-cold water.
Watch me gasp, dripping.

(first roots, then)

Looking down, walking.
Saw roots, beginnings of trees.
Saw, and raised her head.

(bring everywhere)

Bring everywhere:
A right approach, Sight, paper.
Pens. Your heart. Some snacks.

(in this I see)

There's a part that sheds.
And a part that's there, after.
In this I see God.

(marries the wind)

Her mouth, hands were leaves.
Fluttering shaking, dance. Fall. 
Wind picks up, she's gone.

(you mar yourself)

I am stuck angry.
Can't sleep, breathe, or let it go.
Gone, still you mar me.

(number 28)

Say what you mean, please.
No more caterpillar lies.
Unwrap them. Let fly.

(walking in public)

Men's eyes possess me.
Change my gait, shy, grow smaller.
Still they undress me.

(spring dropping)

Death swells the water.
Trash flows putrid-hot thru streets.
And flower petals.

(tire metaphors)

Rubber heart deflates.
Patches, plugs, inner linings.
Dealing with punctures.

(late learning)

I ran so hard, then.
Hurt my legs, my lungs, it all.
No choice, now, but slow.

Sunday, May 8, 2011


Yes, child, chaos reigns.
Still this boundless sky's contained.
See? You are the frame.

(what it is to believe it)*

Unbearable weight.
She says, I am loved, she says.
Then sinking, then light.

*Thanks, Mae :)
