    I thought you should know your words were unexpected like a five- inch snow in Alabama's summertime and beautiful like chasing fireflies at dusk with children up past good-night-time. I thought you should know that your sincerity was striking, too, like lightning shards in midnight thu...

    Some months ago, I freed my beaten soul of slavery we sometimes say is love. And so it rose up from its he**-like hole, like pear tree petals rode the breeze above, and drifted into purgatory where it hung suspended, purposeless yet free. But when you smiled, it became aware that love is just...

    I wonder sometimes why it's you I like since the brown of your eyes is the brown of your shirt is the brown of your hair is the brown of the dirt but then I think: I love your shade of brown. And I see your sweet eyes when I close both my own, and your hair strands are arcs like of h...

    You know how many girls he's emptied like a bottle filled with beer? He drinks up all their love then throws their bottle bodies to the trash or sometimes shatters them into a thousand shining splinters that then fall onto the sidewalk glistening just like their tears. And they get st...

    Until he's gone, he's good, I say, the kind you think about all day. His mysteries will hold you tight and sometimes will his arms at night, enough to keep your mind at bay. You're sure you'll marry him someday. You close your eyes to block the light, ignore your very ow...

    Somehow before the dawn can fall I find myself in chains and in a room with concrete wall. I feel but cold and pains. I hear your voice outside this cell. Too happily it sings of love, of being free and well. Within my cell it rings. These chains were yours and now they're mine; It...

    Your shirt is in my closet, limp. Its sleeves are mussed, its fabric wrinkled, worn from use. It’s wet with tears that it’s absorbed; it breathes them in and out and hides behind my shoes. Its grey and messy form is like the kind of comeback people squint at, trying to discover meaning tha...

    Your pull is always stronger than your push. Well, you can blow me off into a mess of pieces like dandelion seeds, but then you'd only see me many more sweet places than you ever did before. I'd let you slip a noose over my head and leave me hanging there just swaying dead i...

    The Grade C maple syrup in the white and creaky cabinet's my favorite. I held the bottle to the light one time. It glowed just like your eyes. The light, well, danced into the glass and made the syrup warm and beautifully amber, colored like your perfect eyes. Your eyes are richer, though...

    These iron shackles clasp my wrists, so very thick and rough. They bind to chain which binds to you, the ball – you're weight enough. Their edges have been colored red by blood at where they wore away my skin from trying to escape your darn allure. They're locked up tight and Cupid ate...

    The way you walk me home is like the way I wear my silver heels--shaky, unsure. The first time, I remember, was the day I really fell for you. I'd tripped before, but not the way my heel was wrenched into the sidewalk crack. I fell. And when I glanced back up, your smile made me dizz...

    To dance in a dream and make winter seem like it's June To run in the rain and wash out the pain in a puddle To sing to a star and play the guitar on the moon To laugh with a lilt and make the earth tilt on an edge To spin in a square and to take up a dare with a spoon To love the blue ...

    I am Masked My mask? A foundation of Suppressed personality Dusted with the glitter Of name-brand clothes Covered with the sequins Of 'cool' behavior Its ribbon, Conformation, Holds it in place Tightly So it will never fall So I will never be Unmasked...
