Beginning with a garden I first experienced Eden. My deepest regret is abandoning those things I wanted Like the blue suede boots, caked with earth in her backseat. "You can throw them away", I lied As if a little mud had ever done me wrong. You're all rib anyway. As any good deed does, life … Continue reading Ad infinitum.
Flowing down a blustery freeway Larger vehicles pass with care To skate by the small white rocket carving through lanes. She emits a delighted squeal as traction lights blink And the engine revs in all its steamy ambition. Drivers glance at the smoke trail crawling then jumping from a space in the window. The cigarette … Continue reading The Cave With Two Snow Holes
I imagine conversations that need to be had that I may Brush arm skin with Sanity. Thus is my state of mind rushing into work, arms laden with gear Grabbed stomping my way towards the front door Clutching tightly my thermos of day old coffee. I feel the cold air, but much less than human. … Continue reading Repressed
When She is watching you, be in your Best MAnne(r. (NOt until I have my Lipstick 0N) Betty Mosher LOved a CLown. The real problem with Men, she thought aloud, Just the way they manage Thyme. She laughed at her own Power While I stood ashore across Watching desperately what was to come.

The first time I heard her singing Her voice vibrated in my eyes Until my entire body was numb with resonation. Sometimes when I am alone I play that song until I can feel it underneath my ribcage With a pulse so giving I would almost swear She wrote that about us - If only … Continue reading Metronome
Sometimes queens change places in the dark Patriotic fluidity under watch of the moon Called always by crisis.

Melt me, too, when I … Continue reading Alt.
Violent air rattles the window in a small room. I hear the sky scream your name. Why won't you answer me? I cannot seem to remember how it ended Only the perfect storm that brought us near.
