    Don’t gaze at me, little flower - your sticky fingers taste of the sweetest auburn, and no less - your head hangs heavily on demure shoulders, tiny feelers weaving through gauzy summer nights, sweating softly in the dark - steady yourself, close your silken eyes, the upset ...

    Today I feel the cold and it feels me too. We are equals today, battering rams on sweet maple floorboards, eggshells tiptoeing out of sight. We are robin pecked, lissome fields of wheat loosely dressed in the sun’s afterthoughts. Little bees, crawling clumsily over the ch...

    You look across the table, and it stares blankly back at you. You’re the itchy-eye sort of tired today. You belong in the potholes, the stomachache step down. Your words taste like beguilement, rosy and soft. Your voice inflects seamlessly, lilting in the heavy air. The empty space ...

    The night is clear and the moon has a lot to say tonight. The stars, in their incandescent chatter, turn softly in the dark water, arms reaching for each other. My fingers reach for the palm fronds, watch their backs arch in the tangerine dawn. My world of dreams - cradled in ...

    My hands hold the freshness of a cool June morning, dripping in citrus and curling in on themselves like nimble butterflies, skirting edges and questions and every tongue of fear. Little fledgling, tiny bean sprout in the warm ground, eyes retorting the wan and the quiet and the weary...

    My eyes, resting upon you in virginal newness, beheld nuptial vigor in its entirety. You were just a flash across quiet Earth, burning too brightly for passersby to stare and too quickly for my eyes to feast their fill. You rose, heavenly messengers bidding your voice, blooming to ...

    There are stirrings between the Earth and I. They are warm breath and milk teeth and stanzas of quiet song, the warm rustlings of birds. My heart, pearl strung beauty, knocks her feet against the ceiling, tumbling clumsily into emptiness. She nestles herself into a box with just on...

    Your hands, cups of the softest ocher, blooming freely through ribbons of fresh light, hugging grassy knolls that girdle your moving mouth. Little feet, cherry steps popping in shades of sweet magnolia, leaps of the springtime brain that are sharp and stimulating and hungry. ...

    When the dawn cries she draws her knees together, hips brushing undressed trees and cat eye ponds. She is the martyr, the dog-eared fold of flesh, the flashing distress - drowning in steel puddles. When the day begins to break, her knuckles are the first to go, no longer able to stret...

    My mouth brims with tepid water and my eyes burn with rock salt; burgeoning halogen, electron hormones lilting in effervescent stews, outstretched hands subliming with relief at the alkali coldness. Adolescent fingers curling, leafy branches gazing toward the stratosphere, the...

    Sunshine, velvet sepulcher, sweating into brick, into cracked teeth and ragged bones and the desperate hotness of aggravation. Holy fire, knife in hand, drawing through simple skin, through tiny melon flesh, through the minute hand snow that undulates in its wool tasting broth. The...

    Damp maple leaf, drugged heavily with sorrow and single hands, languishing balloon dragging its tongue across the autumn scraped pavement Lonely soul, scrap of wings fluttering blindly, drifting into pale oblivion that feels much too bright Rolls of purple mountains, helium lace...

    Your limbs are heavy in sleep and in waking, muffled by the pull of the floor, cloaks of wild citrus and tired words. Enjambment, little moon on the ice, rounded argyle mind, wispy sigh of fingers pressed to the earth. Sigh in love, in sorrow and in heaviness, air mixing togethe...

    Sometimes I thank God for the days I cannot remember. What a strange thing, to look upon a calendar and see a soft blankness, a bout of nothingness, a watercolor stroke over blocks of endless days, days that collapse plaintively onto one another, rigid skylines folded into the peach pit ...

    I am halfway into this world, lips etched into my face like the kiss of a serrated knife against soft melon flesh. I am a middling shade of grey, hovering melodically in the noonday sky, shot with pale flower petals and the raw smell of gasoline. I am the halfway point, lo...

    You once combed through the stars until you found my face, then gently cupped it in your lavender hands, blowing warm air until flowers blossomed beneath my eyes. Arms akimbo, you stood stoically, stark against the softness of a muted summer night, waiting until I extricated ...

    Lonely painter, simple brush stroke on the green earth, bout of sadness imprinted onto rocky musculature, a single strand of being in a visceral ocean. You are a solitary beam of light, burning too brightly for the humble millings of those around you, mouth brimming with yellow paint ...

    I would love to live without regret someday. It is the stuff my mind likes to vomit at night as the stars cry feebly collapsing softly in infinite darkness. Regret, staple of my diet, monster that cleaves my heart much like grief, blue and numb and very very...

    Your eyes leave a trail of hot breath zephyrs as they slowly climb, pools of milk settling on a roving accordion tongue. Little child, butterfly freshness, flowering bud of a persimmon sunrise. Your hands, buttoned to their white lily throats in blankets of hair, curl protective...

    Loneliness enters, wrapping her arm around my chilled shoulder, clasping her rosebud hand in mine. She is dear to me, little sailboat rocking in the peppery ocean, eyes stinging from bees, fashioned from their hives as they roil in the honeycombed waters. Across the grass, ...

    To begin, the fox dashes, nimble and quiet, sly ballerina. Her eyes are dark moon rocks, skirting celestial oceans in the body of the solar system, lithe and graceful and unfathomable. Deep space, static against the pumping fox’s blood, a sluggish worm before the blinding...

    Empty house, pale white arms curling from the dirt, held akimbo by the chilly air, rugged and well worn. Girlish face, windowsill eyelids lazily drawn down, collarbone jutting sharply from the back porch. Empty walls, ragged in speech and thought, tongues heavy from years of lolling...

    My depth of feeling runs on high, skirting the edges of canyons in ribbons of ash grey; it plunges deeply, a scarlet neckline into blinkered trenches, swimming freely in the dark water. Your face, hurtling asteroid, flashes across the radar, and my heart is buoyed by the snap...
