    Me – an afterthought mapped on saccharine volume, a flurry of prosaic nonsense and that end of June heaviness. I am grey attentiveness and dregs of staleness, blonde hair down bare shoulders in the desperate hotness, mountains crowding my silent tongue. Me – an ampersand, a flutter, ti...

    Hands gently sculpting steering wheels in the morning, lungs and pearls pounding in my throat at the very sight of you, a façade carefully constructed crumbling into the pale blue dust. I am flush against the grey grass, collapsing like dark water, bowing before the milk mist and its shak...

    Flush against the earth, the tide, welcoming the heather sand with her eager hands, her ichor spilling over. The green musculature of the earth, myocardial wetness in her veins, pulsing with salt licked water. Mother, the great ocean, pulling the hems of white dresses, of the white shore...

    astral projections, starry meniscus flowing, bending and bowed beneath my gun shy eyes, strung out and waiting for gently sculpted hills and lanky limbs draped over chairs. i hear ligature clicks and smooth petal veins, quelling nervous tics and crimson vagrants running, rushing under ...

    Watermelon rind shedding its skin, mangled grin and its cemetery flower vibes coalescing. I sank deeper into dreams today, my patronymics, warm hands pressed onto my chest, compressing misanthropes who run wild within me, clouding my vision in white and laying them to rest beneath th...

    upstate and rising, browbeaten and hanging to dry, my heart racing in heated water – my head boils and eyes are pale, angular – verbal spitfire wrestling with my tongue and twitching fingers, itching to scream and to burst into flame – I am agitation and popped muscles and sweet ...

    the wind and its easy, cardamom breath - spicing pine and blushing the silver air with lavender, soft morning - the trees croon with their yellow breath and the fog balloons where the sunlight doesn't hit. little bird, sighing song, velvet gentleness and the blue tang of quiet....

    the young, bucolic countryside now soft and upset, like startled anguish in the night, waking to a door clicking shut while lights blaze on the other side – a tempest, nothing pale and nothing easy about it. frenzied, feverish, snarling fingers clutching at air, a heart in a hospit...

    taut arms stretched to catch the green earth and the lake water, arms clothed in soft grey stripes and snow and birds that beat the morning, arms that fail to keep the hearkening sky afloat, my rounded and hilly home. i hail from the throats of wolves and the tang of pine, pill...

    the morning fog and her velveteen eyes blink at me, and mulberry steam rises hot and still in my throat, and my hands unfurl to finally carry the moon by her teabag knees. it is the omnipotence of a sweeter thing, the opus of the lemon sky – in her best dress before the sun and his...

    the air is still and the trees are warm, but i am the smallest mountain atop rambling waves. daylight draws the curtains and i hide beneath the wings of my mother. i am bruised knuckles and alkaline salts and whiplash, and nobody likes the pounding behind their eyes....

    the ocean is a cradling thing with her wrists exposed, baring her marble teeth to the wind (who promises to be calm but i know better). me, all brain and much too full of heart, begging. i want stillness, the silence before dreamless sleep, hair arcing for the blooming springtime ...

    look at me, earthbound - you, your moon addled mind, idling in the morning and  roving with the evening stars. look to the earth, but don't pluck your eyes from the indigo night. don't cradle the moon, and don't string it between your teeth. i am underfoot, the dirt seeping fr...

    i stand up straight in the morning but by the time night falls i am quietly mauling. the soft, velvet eyes of milling peruse me, keys unfurling, a dog's trumpeting at the great machines buzzing down corridors. for i am not the gentle trees, the upcycling of air in the calm of sleepin...

    i, a diminuendo, a soft bruise, brooding within my blood orange mouth, relive the night in my cardamom bones. flowing darkness, roving skin in quiet, blue waves, the darkness that blooms between my eyes. my milk teeth are made of honey and neptune spoons them into the sea....

    a nice boy drove me home and i saw the moon there, sloping gently, a little sigh in the dark. it was anxious, a mother and a spool, a winding diminuendo in quiet air. its sleeping blush tousled me, made me ache. i watched it settle, float on empty air, in softness and soil to tender re...

    i awoke in the night, hungry, and my muse pulled me out to sea, back arching gently in the shape of neptune. i dreamt of a warm wind blowing and cried with the quiet, in the soft grey of a november dawn. my hair grew long in the fall and pity let my hands go free, and my breath swi...

    i, the slate, sit still as always. the heather spoke but i only caught the last word. a tiny pinpoint, a great ocean. carry me, lift me away to you, blanketed forests, gentle wondering and the stars....

    i am light blue and the sky is gray today. you are the car that idles in the morning, soft sounds, turn signal clicking quietly. you’re overgrown just a little, face darkened in sleeping splendor. meanwhile, i – a little bean, afraid, an exclamation and a hesitation, w...

    my heart, a dark wood, leaves tapering to the windshield as the breath is milked out of me. the trees are planted in their mothering earth, ears to the floor and wide awake. my body, a planet, such a small thing in such a great, big machine – the sky is warm and sleeping today, ...

    head wrapped in a waking dream, cherokee roses blooming along the wayside, the little lamb that ran away. i asked the space to fill me, traumatic birth, a stretch to miss the falling rain. i aim to be my mother who drinks her fill, flush against the heather moon and the quivering lig...

    you are alone tonight. you asked god to help you, but his head must have been in the clouds again. you watch the planes drift lazily and wonder why exactly they feel too fantastic, a little blinding, really. so you settle into sleep, into the crook of the moon’s elbow, as res...

    my heart longed to be subtle, so   i gently cupped it and held it   there. it cried for me, little duck,   hands bursting forth like    umbrellas in a sudden rain.   i hung my heart from my wrist   and it swung like a pendulum,   smearing my sleeve with its  ...
