DROPLETS

28th
Jan. × ’19

Do raindrops know
they have landed in a puddle?
Do they ever discover
the ocean and hope?
Off in our own pools
Are we all waiting for a storm?
No trophy for staying put
At the beach I never stay
on the shore only toe in
All the way always
underwater wet
through and through
I want to melt
to have already
melted
How do we stay in spaces
on the [...]

SURFACES

1st
Dec. × ’18

1.
In every window
is the same story
In every window
is a different story
In every window
is the same story
that thinks it’s different
In every window
is a different story
that thinks it’s the same
2.
Sometimes the window explodes
Is this just new light that’s let in?
Are destruction and creation the same?
Is something new as painful as something old?
Only so much can fit
unless you [...]

NAMING YOU

21st
Nov. × ’18

I think about
naming you
Will you be more of a Vivian
full of life exuding rapture to all ends?
Or will you be Daisy
open to all, bright and bringing light
all the day long?
Or will you be Hannah
which your dad was supposed to be named
had he been a girl
or his brother or other brother
who never were
and now there’s you
little [...]

SONOGRAM

14th
Nov. × ’18

I see your tiny
feet as if you have
kicked back in a chair
laughing so hard
you somersault
Is this how
imagination begins?
I can only hope
you will spin like this
always
head over toes

PLACE SETTING

14th
Oct. × ’18

1.
Oh spoon, why
do you make me want
to be fed by you?
2.
Water glass
you silly fool
I will absorb all of you
Come, slip, slide
like a cold ember
in my throat
Let me be
nothing but
the way I feel
3.
Plate
you wait
so patiently
Is it worth it
again and again?

NAPKIN

1st
Oct. × ’18

1.
What lives
just beneath
the surface
Is there even surface?
Or are we all a part
2.
Surfaces rarely go untouched
dive in they beckon
send a ripple
We are all in motion
do not give up
3.
You produce
a rabbit
everytime
and still
I am happily surprised
4.
If we are all a part
what then
is clandestine?
Hands held
beneath your drapes
Is all lust just
what we dream
not what we must?
5.
And when it is over
and [...]

TROJAN HORSE

14th
Sep. × ’18

When the kettle whispers
about to boil
When it is gray and almost
release to rain
When briefly nothing coheres
time out
When song words reappear
perchance
Faint sound of ringing
my ears as if detached
Late nights of loud music
standing outside
cool breeze
suddenly fresh
Trojan horse
almost
come closer
you should know
the castle of my body
not my strong walls only
Knocking heartbeat
tap resound
tickle tempt
touch
There is always
more
never enough

MIMOSA FLOWER

30th
Aug. × ’18

1.
Some people call you a shrub
Some people do not know
what they are missing
2.
Some people say you act
sensitive
I know you are
but what am I?
We are not stones
We are here sensing
one another
3.
Some people say you act
feminine
What does this mean?
That you reach
ecstatically
for the sun?
That you come
in many colors?
That you like a cool drink
in a curved [...]

CHERRY TREE

28th
Aug. × ’18

1.
I wait for you
burst of color
What do you wait for?
2.
You are a spectacular mess
clustered in intricacies
no one need understand
In certain lights
I know though
you too
strive for this
You triple axel of trees
3.
Do you wonder
when to confetti
fortunate passersby
Do you feel let down
when you have landed?
3.
If you could
float back up
Rewind again
upend amend
Would you
be less
beautiful then?
4.
Someone uses a leaf blower
on [...]

MAGNOLIA

18th
Aug. × ’18

1.
Each year I fear for you
Will you come early?
Will snow come late?
Will you not
bloom?
And then you are here
so vibrant
and so brief
A cruel affair
I long to repeat
2.
How does it feel to be
a moment?
Like unrequited lust?
Let down
lingering on
Or like the fluttering of wings
before unfurling fingers
flight?
3.
Only a couple of days later
you look so sad
The wait never worth it
4.
This [...]
