I’m Inviting Me To Remember You

November 29, 2015 I’m inviting me to remember you, How, as a blue jay you unfolded your wings and wrapped them around my aching throat, How, as a storm you soothed the desert of a sandstorm day, How, as a whisper you cushioned the Thunder’s wardrobe of squalls, And as an alligator you sunbathed in […]

Strong Tiger

November 23/28, 2015 Strong tiger. The wind whipped battlefields, broken tree branches, whole twigs, dripping stalactites way down deep and how the glowing yellow skeleton reaches out, eternally-looking from its half moon-boat for the only true coin you’ve ever known, How it fits perfectly in that round indentation thereon its see-through, white kaleidoscopic hand, Its […]

Can I Say This?

November 21, 2015 Can I say this? ‘Oh, yes, let it out lover, just let it flow from your pulsing lips. Get over here and spill it into The Void, the missed promises, the old shoes, the delinquent new shoes, the mistakes, the dead birds and the cracked windshields, the hot water where the cold […]

Closeness

November 20, 2015 Closeness; the breathing of suspended stars, A tight hug; holding on for a little bit longer than the customary margin, Dolphins brushing your thighs as the tides restore and subside, Urchins, starfish, coral reefs and that invisible overflow valve set deep behind your rib cage’s gateway, You’re the clear glass holding the […]

A Conjuration

November 19, 2015 A conjuration, a rationing of the tiny, An unveiling of the white blanket, folded and tucked neatly beneath the naked Antique’s quest for a dust-negligee, A sliver of The Witness, A jaw drop prior to the rainbow’s fading, A sound that stops the profound, The mystery that asks for nothing and how, […]

I Remember When

November 15, 2015 I remember when you reached out to divide your first cell, I recall your breathing in the midday shade as the maple leafs fell slowly, soundlessly wreathing your crib in blazing oranges, reds and mottled green-browns, You dreamt, you looked and looked, inside and out, always simultaneously, The blackberries and the currants, […]

Close Your Inside-eyes

November 12/13, 2015 Close your inside-eyes, Soft snow is falling, unmixed with toil, unsung, pure and secretly burning white hot, There’s a cabin in the woods called ‘You’, No footprints are to be found, to or from, No porch-boards creaking, no solicitors seeking, Your habit is to land on its roof and peer down its […]

Upon The Mist

November 12, 2015 Upon the mist, inside the rain, underneath the sobs, within the games and beside the gestures of wanting in, frozen in Time are the twin-lovers of Begin, I want only what is good for you, I want the sun to pause and ask you, ‘Can I sit?’, I want the sun to […]

Thank You Doves

November 9, 2015 Thank you doves, For your landing and confiding, For your quiet, feather-anchored bodies upon the November lawn of my heart, In the feeders above you are seeds of misgivings, Seeds of improbable hope and clasped husks of what is, was and wasn’t, These be still and stay on the outside of you, […]

Quiet Clinging

November 4, 2015 Quiet clinging, moss to stone, stone to earth, water to thirst, hunger to passersby’s insulated change, Sown up Jefferson lips, Stopped up Franklin ears, Blindfolded Washington eyes, Chastity-belted Cleveland, Quiet clinging, lips to lips, hips to hips, cotton to loom, sound to thunder, lightning to ancient oak tree, hunger to passersby’s kneeling […]
