Planned Horticulture I ripped out every page Crumpled every note, every errand, every future task In order to choose being Here. Its hard to prevent that clouding, Some aspects of life are invasive, While other More tender aspects Require hot house assistance. Desire I’d happily hang on his word … Like a distant train whistle […]

I miss… Them all. I pine. My sisters my mother my daughter, The ones I had, the ones I have, the ones that never were. I am raw like a sea urchin’s gullet, all one cavern. Mouth and anus, porous and sessile, Swaying perceptively according to sea ways. My tentacles in false animation, harried without […]

I’m thinking about my grocery list. I’m not thinking about not having friends. I’m thinking about making curried corn and potatoes. I’m not thinking about my husband’s silence.

I find that I’m not so interested in the unprecedented. It keeps biting me (us) in the ass these days, ya know, the […]

I sit before a cold fireplace While the hearth outdoors Beats the pavement into The evening a glow is cast From a summer candle throwing Carefree scents of honeydew and cucumber Not unlike the body spray of youth Triggering a small cascade of lit Neurons in vague recognition I hear a homebound fly buzzing Lazily […]

I don’t know what it is Maybe I don’t like the sound Of my own voice right now And thats not a judgement I’m not editing for content Its more about availability For listening … Because nature and the universe is conspiring to force if necessary this season Of listening A reckoning An accounting A […]

He walks on stilts Stilted With abrupt shakes Turns And pauses … One ear up And one to the ground Muttering Arms swing Then flex Sun spreads warmth like feathers Over his hunched, bony shoulders Insect zing Squirrel crunch Breeze sway ### There’s a toddler in the waiting room. He is full-body interacting with a […]
