    And like a sigh working Through signs of woe I am bent sinister And pushed to the wall. Like a line lifted from a book thrown on the floor Amidst the trash where I will soon break your heart, We decided to do this again Because of those few, certain Things we miss feeling. We could, despite...

    I've been sitting here for over an hour now Hoping someone won't just walk by. Untouched coffee in hand, work Sprawled out on the table, I check my Hair and posture every so often to Make sure I can maintain that look; That perfect medium between despondent And comfortable. The look of the c...

    With sugar-coated deliverance, I Act as if I am not aware That you are so sweet lurking. You, in deadlock, tango with The back of my head; You’re looking for me to lead, Looking for the gestalt switch. Oh you blink and stare, Holding on like a photograph lens, Etching me somewhere Silly,...

    I miss you, I don’t even recognize you, I want to see you. Mom found my pipe, my words, Never said any herself about it. My younger brothers won’t give a damn To sneak around like we had to. Pick up, lights off, end of the street, Out on a stiff, 2:30 run. Speaking for myself, I Still ...

    Connection has slowed, To a stop even. “Too far to keep,” you and I silently and implicitly agree. Day and night, I Can hear you thinking. Memories twitch; Mindy glares, I am a sexy composition boldly Prophesying a selfish God. Hit me and I’ll Drivel for you, Shoot me so I can L...

    God’s got you on Your toes again, son. Sneaker swoosh, First-time banker, hand check On a school bus, First-time inside Of her; Natural, like Madonna’s baby boy In a crack den, Quarantine, confession Booth and open ears. What a drag, man. So bold and screeching We had to be the pol...

    It was a brilliant way to get to the Heart of the matter and Then eat it. If only I could taste as good As my mother and my Father I would bite it to the Core, suck the seeds from its Quiet little burden. Maybe mom and Dad would grow a little in me; Like an ink black tree. Sending an under...

    I had never seen you in red before You thought me as complete as yourself Kissing any color from which resembled you Though I had never seen you in red before I had never seen you in uncorked bottles, Hugs from your father-in-law, blocked Passions of past-lovers waiting for their try At keepi...

    As a native of Appalachia and a beneficiary to its artistic heritage, the annual Rhythm and Roots Reunion festival in Bristol has always been, for me, a sort of culturally consummating event. Here, some of the greatest and most influential performers, writers, and musicians gather annually in an ex...

    Never had a room been so quiet as when Mary Singer told the class she had One week to live Like an eleventh-grade fog, Her red-colored cheeks and half-turned smile Made us all think maybe she was kidding She was always one to kid about everything; The set of her eyes sparkling like the age ...

    Here, unprepared, I black out the simple sketch before me. The mountains Are falling over themselves. Red blinking electrical tower Blinks behind the cascade of falling mountains Building Building Closed eyes reveal what first becomes a silence Of schemes and exasperating melodies of the...

    There’s brightness into scrabbles of games And technical nuances Of serendipitous problems There’s brightness in thoughts of different skies And loves for similar lies and gospel truths There’s brightness in vain interpretations And similar likes beyond us, All of it mixing togethe...

    He stared at himself. At his reflection in his thumbnail. Illuminated by the thoughts of the now, Supporting weight, Lights of a cell phone button panel, The darlings of the that, The occasional thought of her. He thought that it felt kind of surreal, To see himself, In himself. What he dr...

    Have you ever felt torn? Away from the places you loved, Outside of the places you hated? It strikes splits into me to achieve Such Exact gross inflation, Such processed divinity of self in two parts. Severed, perspiring, torn, It is too simple to assume that I am one piece, Of both fea...

    She felt the foreign taste of anticipation On her neck, Lips, appendix. He seemed so calm in the Sunny side of the shade, And wanting to make an impression, She became, but did not desire to become, His shadow. The shady side of the sunny side of the shade. To the neck of her light, Th...

    I live on foundations Like the memory of last summer’s sun. From where I stand, the smallest glimpse of The moon in the afternoon sky Reminds me that there is another afternoon approaching. And in its foggy sunlight so I record The shifty shadows. They tell me I am free. That I c...

    The power cables gripped the sky In a way that complemented the waste of the industry beyond. The picture, the model, of our progressive relativity. Here, some hundred feet away, Nothing felt better or looked more intriguing Than the success of one thousand fractured factions Of the last asp...

    I gave time a description. She identified my body. I am dead to her. Yeah, she made this what I wanted for so long: On our clocks and ticks and bars of slipping sleep I thought myself as pure as the father, I thought myself as pure as my next tick, I thought myself a product of my youthful ...

    Which way is up? Indeed, we have exceeded beyond ourselves now, pulled without arrows of misanthropic successes or thinking where we could end up. Up is what I make of it. Here, we sit in blocks of power and Four by four dignity Connotations of the poor And the requiems of ink and paper Lin...

    The deception of winter ate the summer breeze On lakes like plates and ferries like silver complacencies And I served as one bite, frisking way into forest; Her stomach’s aggravation, a dissonance in her digestion chorus She had laid for me a hike to my own Sinai Left me fixed at Inspirat...
