Splash* (revisited)

I want to collect you in buckets– drop by drop. When they said time might fly it was because they heard it could stop. We started those rumours, proving them by storms as children jump in puddles;                they admire our … Continue reading

Nothing but the Stem

I painted him with six fingers for reasons I can’t confess. (It’s for the way oil chips off of glazed wood,   sanded between thighs…) I wish I never closed my eyes to his– the greenest. For his was the greediest … Continue reading

How Envy Lies

They painted the grass for you and my white dress. Lay me down. I am stained with your kisses, libel. Skin unnerved but bruised by the captivated and shrugged by the captured. I’ve been tinted. I’ve been tainted. Lay me … Continue reading

Her Request

Respect me like a saxophone dipping in the sky as though every star fell for Alabama that night.

Dihedral

Two plane faces with too plain of faces. They all fall flat. They all collapse. So come back in two-fold when you know my edge… Recycling brittle paper so tired from the pleats of, what he claimed was love, is … Continue reading

Let us be Splash*

                         Children walk backwards                                     Like inverted maps,           Where the water is their only love.               They never take their eyes off it,                 Mistaking magnetic attraction                                    For magnetic North. Shift your poles– Life could be tectonic. Describe me by Onomatopoeia Like you would … Continue reading

Awake

Lashes, Bats And a crooked smile; Sometimes that’s all it takes. Sometimes… Staches, Bags, And eyes to avoid; Sometimes it’s better that way. Sometimes… Sometimes I know my mistakes. Sometimes I fear yesterday. Sometimes                       I lay                               Awake.

Blaming Spontaneity

The night was old,            it had long since past like all emotions that didn’t hum to my desired tune of those I would much prefer;                                mumbles and                                whispers that turn in to                                grunts and                                moans— … Continue reading

If I Only Had a Dime

Gave my heart away. Had it sold back to me. I’ll leave it here to decay Knowing nothing is for free. Men have no hearts.   Men have no heads. My conditioned response?         Give them head.       I don’t … Continue reading
