    Every time I see you Dream of you, hear your name Stretched against the voice of some other My insides twist and my throat takes a g And my heart beats with sporadic palpitations, exasperation Icy and feverish I think I’m in love with you Every time you say my name Let the words drip thi...

    My voice hardly crested the pulpit It withered and died at my feet They sing and cry to me daily But I am not the god they seek I see them kissing crosses And falling on their knees But I know I am not their leader Too long hidden in sinistry “Save my son, my daughter, Ten shillings i...

    I placate Night's ungainly stars by judging Their lumbering waltzes, clumsy pas de chat Mistakes in pivots, entrechat not springing I stretch their aching legs before battement Ten eons past, they showed off pink-sheen tights Their pointed toes first cracking fresh peach leather A bunch wi...

    The young girl prays at her bed, on her knees, Until she is taken away And the young boy stands alone, a mere black shadow, To watch his love become the helpless lamb Dragging the maiden out to meet her doom, “Save the people!” No Ascalon can slay her killer The undertaker is left to car...

    Blue, blue, sharp and hot Sizzling, the glistening edge of a knife It leaves deep punctures in my ears Yet I do not bleed, I just form In the blue, blue, sharp heat Down the street a little, that’s right To the home of the seamstress, who sews the strands of my golden hair And leaves ...

    The police came in One by one by one by One gave me a glossy green, slit-eyed stare He said Ma’am, I know you dunit I stayed sulking in my corner, twisted my Dun streaked hair, Clucked like a horse-rancher as I chewed my rubbery pink Wrigley’s Nah, I’d say you got some things messed u...

    Simple as it may seem I am deeply troubled at the task of writing this poem Yet I sit down to finish my work Papa was taken away from us because he didn’t obey He refused to bow on his knees Simple as it may seem The journey here was long and far The tests were difficult and mocking Ye...

    She spins her threadbare wool while on her porch Her eyes are swelled and closed, the trait of sages The charcoal grays between the black look scorched Her pepper hair is thin from fires or ages A mystic cradled in an ancient place Of dead Pompeii, a part of peeling lore Like weathered paint ...

    Cold is the night, and breathless is the moon The wolf howls his tribute The pitch is tortured and lovely Sputtering out silver gasps And letting them materialize in the sky Cold is the night, and breathless is the moon A thousand fir pines brush against each other And each movement is sh...

    The first note trembles, vibrating, nervous and high pitched, As if struggling to recompose itself on a tight-rope And more firmly, a G sharp pulls strong, Wrapping its feet around the cord and standing up A few staccato marches, Red-coats traveling to the garrison in unified lines, Until a gu...

    Close your eyes for just a moment Amazing what you can see when you’re not looking; Electric red lines, pulsing with power Slitting the utter darkness at random Then glaciers of ice drift aimlessly across the black Arctic Blinding pockets of chilled light An original Jason Pollock, black and...

    Blue silken river The birthplace of our memories Those long ago moments have slipped from my fingers We used to play King of the Forest And lead our cavalry To the blue silken river You triple dog dared me to tell John I liked him I couldn’t because I saw you laughing in the classroom c...

    If your hand suffered to pass my lip And leave it its natural pink, or perhaps a blush warmer It would be a day momentous in its rarity It is like our lives only mingle in a dream, and awaken, startled As if we are strangers I find it strange that I often dream of people I do not know And I l...

    Diana, I was eager for her to leave me Leave not but a sliver of light if she must And the spectral shadow of her burdens would Be gone, the woes elsewhere I wanted the coolness of her touch Her frigid, manipulating fingers and throaty moans To escape this place of blooming hydrangea and ...

    Blessed fragrances are the heart of a summer dream Wistful and royal, but fleeting in their prime Hold me, so that the grass growing between the ground and the sky Will not cause me to sway because I am weak Forgotten promises, resign me from their grasp Days in the fields are much livelier wit...

    A silver fog is filtered through the cobblestone cracks, its ashy tendrils reflective Everywhere, antiquated bicycles are left on the dirty streets The night is blue-black As if a cicatrix is imprinted upon its cheek People nowadays all seem dulled, as if by some opiate Their lackadaisical eyes...

    I learned to stop crying when Beauty died The tears burn your eyes, make you nose steam up Your emotions become parched and run dry like a river bed It leaves your throat sore and bulky Instead I became Animal Pressing my raw tongue against my razor back teeth Preparing for revenge, eyes ...

    I let my feet sink into the mud today It was a horrendous feeling that left them weak and tingling The mud dried on my ankles in thick, cakey layers But it still moved, paste-like, between my big toe and the other toe beside it Beautiful thing, a mud garden Easy on the mind, lovely to indulge i...

    Magnetic attraction My fingers hover poised over the paper with purpose Praise the woman Who, like Enheduanna, loves the smell of concentration Who writes As if walking around a wall Could bring it down forever. Praise the woman who has trampled that wall To the ashes Where the prejudi...

    The brisk wind is frozen In silver fog the dried leaves snapping Beneath the traveler’s feet The smoky residue of a long forgotten campfire fills the Emptiness. Feel the air, thick and pregnant with regret; but Thin and waning in the sun’s respite Amber and tawny leaves being shot off...

    Youth is empty nights and days for stargazers When feet are light and eyes peeled open It's whimsical and nonsensical and yellow When the sunlight hits the pavement and beckons you to lie upon it To be childish is to fly in your dreams and not even remember how when you wake up It's...

    I know the River’s charade The semblance of her serenity And the truth underneath The façade that she portrays, lusterless and lifeless I have felt her frigid fingers gently grab me And bring me into her austere, glacial embrace I know how often she flings you into the swift current with...
