(poster sale)

postered boards, haggling.
the man with the black beard looked at me.
hard and so I left.

wobbly-kneed to the
apartment. I threw up and laid
on the bed, covered in mirrors.

I scorn you, you
moon of treacherous pearls.
He said, do it again.

To say it is
lizard tongues, severed, flicking-- the picture
not coming in words.

(ocean metaphors 2)

swan-like she dove for me.
her face was my own and I gagged on her.
underwater, piano sounds.

Chain link fence in the moonlight.
A dog's leg lifted.

(break form)

We were tigers running.
poem-crazy and blood-thick.
eyes for wolves, skies, fire.

(morning light)

In my dream there were
hands. White bones curled round doorframes.
Me, grateful to run.

(tupelo wind)

I am a woman
who needs space. Feed me figs, still (thank you)
I'll take walks, alone.

(Musical Mash-ups XI)*

My sweet one, I call
you. I will buy you a ewe.
We'll love; he'll be true.

*thank you, Phish
