Our lives

We live our lives just like this: Like the way we sleep on the floor altogether and it seems like we’ve done this forever, Like the way we clean every week and we don’t get to relax even if we are tired if we don’t clean every week, Like the way we use the toilet […]

Tunnel

I missed that winter wood, So I walked. What I found in solitude– Those trickles, tinkles, pebbles, piñons. Pining for a sentiment of despair. The winter wood has a hold. Lull.  Interlude. Pause. The light at the end of the dark. I have felt this despair– A seasonal death.                        A fluctuating intermission. I stepped […]

Grow

Grow, grow from seed. Two—one part from me –one part from you.   Grow, uterus, grow. In a water balloon of life, Hide her in there, Let her play and sleep, Even just a little while longer.   Grow, uterus, grown. Anchor those steaks of round ligaments, Swell out a tent of muscle, Push my […]

Time Measured in Toothpaste Tubes

(For the lucky, Expire when you realize you’re getting just a little older. For the ones that live and live and live, Do you end up just living to die?)   Time measured in toothpaste tubes. Enough time to roll the bottom end up. Make that toothpaste keep it’s promise. Hold the roll with a […]

I See You

His human respiration ceased. Agonal breaths remained. A waterless fish lying on the tile floor. A blooming tulip pulled out of its pot home. His hair human-like –silver strands –gold strands –long strands combed and parted to the side. Vermillion border of his lips dissipating. Tubes and wires and beeps and hisses and clugs and […]

Things Lost Forever

Things lost forever: A tile magnet from Spain. A pair of black tweezers. A pair of red sunglasses. (I found those in 2015, tucked in a drawer, resting in it’s case.)   Where are you objects of unnecessity? Why do I obsess about you all?   Things I can never lose: The patch of long […]

Fly, fly, fly

I’d like to have the light on me. I want to be the warmth on you. On anyone I touch. To bring a sparkle in your eye, soul, whole. To transition. I want to hit A beam of light on a crystal drop, and let all the little beams   Fly, fly, fly.   Off, […]

My Vagus, My Love

You are my Vagus Nerve. My wanderer, my love. You have my lungs, my gut, my heart. You make my voice crack and creek, My ears tickle so deep, My heart pace my beat. Go dive my jugular foramen, Make me sweat in my sleep. Run along side my blood sheathed carotid, Nesting so close, […]

The Macho Pinks

Maybe so if the skies were red and white and green. People will wonder where it all was. That it was really a dream. And we all woke up at the same time. And the sky woke up too. The colors elated. Turn into lollypops and dragonflies. And the macho pinks would have a battle […]
