    If you peeked through the lace curtains Last night, into the small Chautauquan kitchen You would have seen an Aunt, a daughter and a grandmother Standing around the stove watching the cake rise through the oven light. As the timer dings and they open the door Out wafts the sucrose smell of ba...

    I was born to a Father of Thunder, Mother of Home. An Aunt of the Hearth, of Love, of Courage and the moon, Of purity and Wisdom. To an Uncle of the Seas, of War, of Fire, of Messengers and Thieves, Of Music and of wine. Lesbos to Olympia on Iris’s rainbows, conveying the messages of noct...

    Clinking, the white feather sighs Oh a silver throated swan Floats and skims through a blinking pool His presence bothers the ochre reeds. Treading water the aqua pearl Floats towards it’s other half Each a side of a bowed-head heart. As frozen and unattainable as they seem Quickly the...

    She traces my outline with her lingering eyes My opaque heart drums through my pink density Of me and my chalk bone cage The highway of rising cells reddens my plane Of strained, pulled, trained face pulled back at the Question mark hearing aid. I am not threatening to her, but she's lai...

    The lingering seeds attach To the impossible porous surface Weakening its longing for flight Soothing the ache, the bones bruise, The hearts curdle, the minds scream, To break away, detangle, take your Own breath of real unshared air This clean, lonely, concrete, deafening Front line. Watchi...

    Try combing your hair when you realize there's nothing left You'll never tuck long locks and curly curls behind your ears Or sweep those impossible tangles over your shoulder It was time for a change To spruce up your bland scenery That consists of you and me Gray and black and white You've b...

    Chopping up each number each word every time There’s no rhythm she makes no rhyme Just blah blah, no one knows It’s just empty walls Filled with pallid faces meandering down clogged halls There’s a need to break free A fever rampaging through each molecule Of each fiber Of each cell ...

    Drooping heavily these sagging lids Carry me to a world so far away yet transpired instantly My eyes twirl back as I’m swept away Swirling into a drowsy mist Carry me to a world so far away yet transpired instantly I long to be amongst the evaporating clouds Swirling into a drowsy mist Ri...

    I can see it Looming in the distance Moving without me, not waiting Leaving me behind Looming in the distance I yearn ache burn to be there Leaving me behind Glistens just below the horizon I yearn ache burn to breathe in Holding my gaze, challenging my resolve Glistens just below the ...

    You who stood before your father’s eyes Shamed the name you took from him Bellowing out the anger that flows A silence, empty as his eyes that fight you Shamed the name you took from him There is no sorrow to feel, no feeling left to indulge him with, A silence empty as his eyes envelope y...

    All over you, far away spinning out in space Please come save me, mercy for this grace Reel me back in, turning all around Moving south, far from anything Please come save me, mercy for this grace Scoop me up and carry this all off me Moving south, far from anything I’ve left all of me b...

    With his head under the hoof of a beat-up old ford He heard the beats, synchronized beauty. Ba-dum, ba-dum, ba-dum The moon over head, shining off her coat and the stars in her eyes. He heard the beats, synchronized beauty A deep thud on the earth, kicking it up behind her The moo...

    Green satin fills the center of the white cotton daisies Held up by the iron stand, a white crinkled pot Set against the dark mahogany of Christ The arching bow of the roof Two-toned orange wings of angels look ­pityingly down upon us Framed by crimson rose skies Sandstone pillars hold us up ...

    Dark, dark, dark Entombed inside A scene from the woods The trees form a mold, a frame Taking on the dark, mysterious Enfolded in a shell, the zipper is stuck Mighty are the bonds that hold Tightening an unbreakable tie The black, tough, iron bark weighs and pulls down Break, break through ...

    You are who ever I am the writer You read what I write. Do you hear my words? Each letter a different note, Turned in a symphony of noises. In a five-stanza poem I can make music. Do you see what I'm writing? Can you see the dog wagging her long black tail Against t...
