    I have been tangled in the knots that you tied for three months now. this imperfection is, after all, merely human. I am somewhat soothed by the clear, lilac clinking of teacups on echoes of saucers. anyhow, these are months; three moons, three cycles, three floods. floods of novels, sunl...

    And it is nothing but this: a framework Full of ulna, radial with struts of porous Crustacea, brittle and frail as the embodiment Of a tibia; though phalanges can fret Without fretting guitar strings, their own ligaments That can connect and make you feel your nerves Through your synovial flui...

    When she kissed the surface was hard and silvery and did not ripple like it had for Narcissus. She looked identical to her, and she looked at her, square and central. Same pale white skin, dark curly hair, hard, grainy features. There, her, her sister. Her mirror sister. She liked this perfection. S...

    please leave quietly “oh, and put in a load of washing, I'll be back in an hour” which is enough time for the fetus of your sulk to gestate into something more mature and less troublesome. don't worry about the birthing pangs it's easiest if you stand up; but watch out you don't spin away...

    In the British museum we were asphyxiated by the Korean exhibits. It was from our laughter that echoed off the glass and worked within us the same way those seemingly prehensile pictograms reach out their branches for you and constrict what they can. in reality the characters are neat, ...

    Through a crack in the bathroom window Awakened by the cold, is a sharp rectangle of light— Embedded in the brick of a wall across the street. The rays will flood the ghostly black snicket With surgical yet ethereal light till It touches your house, the bricks breathe And it bounces back,...

    You do not know yet that if it had been Just three months before The answer may have been different. I have already seen it coming; Seen it in these nights that connect us to our past. To the four-pronged greenery of the sound Of a helicopter rotor chopping the air above us As we walked alo...

    A thousand million rainbow coloured poems Pile up like multi-coloured bricks In my mind, like tiny saturated pixels Making up a much larger picture. I can remember the space: The spaces on the page; the Gaps of floating nothingness That are filled up by the Cool breath of clouds on your sk...

    Your face: hollow and naked As the inside of an egg: But one made of tissue paper Stretched across bone, transparent As cellophane to reveal The stark greyness of the flesh beneath. Your back: slung low like someone Who is too tall to fit beneath doorframes. But you are just thin, weak, a ...

    Between the rolling humps And rows of the dead— That one word, dead— As heavy as the final rattling sigh Of a cancer patient— As sickening as the soft thud Of warm flesh struck down On the dewy sparkling ground. —the miasma hangs, dampening The brave new grass between The fres...

    I I feel the September chill Walking through my bones Like the echoes of all the things I forgot to do. Suddenly I take great solace in stillness; The silence of the soul that soothes itself In a balm quieter than all other ointments. I remember Olympus, though invisible, In the dark that ...

    Today the sky is your ceiling, my love There are walls around you but They are only dull, thin copies Of the real mountains that now Shut you into isolation. Do not fear that You do not understand this. Your eyes are never turned upwards, Making this impossible. I can relate to how you ...

    I cannot believe that anything Could ever decay me like this— Because as I am composing The notes drop, ringing, into glasses Strutting, green like peacocks, through A vertical forest of transparency. Brittle as this clear sound They are staying and shattering As we crash those ten green...

    I have not showered since Tuesday and I don’t know if I will forget Because I didn’t remember to forgive you. The sunlight and leaves and ether, The summertime reddish dust And the scent of memories Have already marked me in that short time. And I didn’t want to tell you anyway ...

    I didn’t know-In people’s houses, their children Running and shrieking with spring delight- That garlic could smell so strong. The scent of their cooking seeped through the untimely bricks Giving homely warmth to the street itself. The children were red-headed, the bushes arching And...
