    Kissing my fingers - They are long and live as seagulls, Casting foam-tinged wings Along the ocean's salty tongue Hips like hillsides, Rising with the tides Shallow pond-clefts have caught And filled with tears Now dry In yielding folds of midnight flesh And tranquil curves Soari...

    The birds sing brighter than ever could I have, And brighter still. I am cold In your arms. The sky of late has sagged downwards, In a steady droop, Encroaching on our heads. If you and I are not the most, then what are I and you? Long division separates the darkestness of which we...

    and having nothing left to give i give you my name. a tiny offering. a lettered nest of baby mice, filling the sweet pillow of your hand. how paltry the curved walls of my miniature labyrinth. and how may my sibilant syllables caress your cheeks with half the tingling, heady waterfall your...

    I believe the end of the world will not be one year and one month from today despite what the Mayans might have said and I believe that global warming may destroy all hopes that my children's children will one day see a polar bear and I believe that, if I wanted to, I could be...

    my feet are wet in your oceans your arms bear up my chest (i am treading, treading) the forests 'round my heart blaze autumn-fire, blanket me in leaves and violins breathe in and out among the silent sky-borne birds (and i am treading) but winter paces near now, love, all soft am...

    neither of us understood the words, of this alone I am certain, but we drank them ice-cold with lime (and the night around us, oh the night) we swam like fishes through the darkness with the foreign edificios rising beside us, strange castles filled with everything we cannot say (and the n...

    I The evening tastes like your skin, Puckered and wrinkled between my teeth My lips so often shrank from your touch – They feared the memory of what they will someday Be. But sometimes, I recall, You felt so full and swelled with love, I’d swear you might float away. The moon overhead...

    "try not to think of a polar bear" he said "and that's all you'll think about" he was right - my brain stormed with lightning flashes of white, teeth, frozen snow - but now I think I'd rather not-think about that bear than anything else he seems so ...

    When the memory of you has faded To a dim topaz, surrounded in tarnished silver, I will slip you off my fourth finger, And store you away in the back of my jewelry box. So that when our child has grown your smile, your cheekbones, Your dry, sweet skin, And she searches through my necklaces, ...

    I love you more than my last root canal More than Brussels sprouts and asparagus, More than plugged-up toilets and plumbers’ cracks, More than the C+ I received on my last English paper And more than the uncomfortable pictures my mother takes every Christmas. I love you at least as much as ...

    Into the bleeding heartland we escape through the burning night The black eroticism of lightning Chasing our tattered skeletons We dodge electric raindrops and skin ourselves on scarecrows Leap waterfalls and hide in aubergine gullies Race over cliffs and under mountainsides Scrape our knees ...

    Once upon a time There lived a little girl With scarlet ringlets in her hair Who – No, once upon a time An evil witch cast a spell – But once upon a time A handsome prince – The girl grew up; The prince grew old; The witch grew tired; And the dragon lived happily ever...

    There was a time in my life When it all would have simply flowed past And I, skipping through the grass with bared foot and ribbons in my hair, Might not even have noticed Raised voices Gunshot words But then I began to wear shoes And the ribbons wore out And I growed all up into a big per...

    Donning my winter-coated armor, I step out into the searing snowstorm, Eyes blistered by the white. Cold shouldn’t burn, I decide. Why is the winter so unfriendly? It’s not, it’s so lonely, that it reaches out Desperately With icy tendrils searching for warmth, Then dragging a would-be...

    1. Find a comfortable spot, preferably on the floor, preferably cushioned by pillows and blankets, preferably alone. 2. Seat yourself cross-legged, hands on your thighs. 3. Concentrate on your breathing. 4. Consider the temperature of the room: Is it too hot? Too cold? Fix the thermostat ...

    The grass has grown tall as a tornado around us. Deep beneath it, my memory of you is a shy brown rabbit, Nestled in its close dirt burrow Because it is spring, You whisper ever more loudly in my ears – And I laugh alone at our jokes as loudly As the sound of one mouth kissing I dr...
