    It used to be You & I Before words Took scissors to the symbol. You took an eye. I traced the incision And cut on the dotted line Like third grade. I dangled your heart in hand And let it hang. I did the same in ninth, but with love Without it, we were hopeless. I first heard Ham...

    Is it a limited silence that strikes my mind? Ever shielded from the time, such truths that can't be denied. I'm standing at a distance, seeing the picture and lying. It's lit into flames and dying and in it's place a blank frame of white smoke with only a black square ...

    He looked to me as he took a seat. Seven am in the dining hall is always this way, all horizontals. Lines starting, ending, still straight over the scattered tables, boxed chairs, flat utensils. I pick up the paper cut out of a fork, put it on my two dimensional tray, take a seat. He looked to m...

    The slanting light of a drowsy sun glints on a clear blue, reflecting images on the plastic of inflatable pool rafts. They hang heavy in the water, most of the air having already been squashed out of them from yesterday’s guests. I can recall only a fraction of these visitors, wandering now as gho...

    It's three a.m. I feel like a third of a person. And the worst part of that is, I thought quarter in my head. As the words whizzed like wire signals from brain to fingertip, I felt the lie play out in the tapping of five keys. A fifth of a person. Am I shrinking? I guess the witc...

    The last of the falling dust cascaded to the ground. Shrieks and screams repeated in my ears. An outsider would claim it an echo, I knew it to be the endless line of human torture As each new bomb took it’s place among the debris, Tearing apart already torn individuals, Whose badges had lo...

    I stand amidst a crowded room I stand alone amidst a room They bow and curtsy decked in jewels And smile wide like ignorant fools With cold eyes and grinning faces They greet all beside rose vases Ruby petals and painful thorns Flowers deceivingly adorn The richest walls of granite stone Be...

    The painting beside the Mona Lisa Knows no audience It hangs on a brass peg Centered on a great white wall Protected by the museum it rests in The painting beside the Mona Lisa Is in a prime position for viewing But Da Vinci's strokes hold all the fame And the crowds that gather have eyes ...

    Hastily scribbled signs In the ink of dried up markers Bold lettering on colorful paper Plastic pitchers and paper cups Powder mix settles, a wooden spoon to stir Rickety table on sun soaked black top Scorching toes and abandoned flip flops Seventy-five cents, shouted to summer Salvaged coo...

    The zipper has never worked on this backpack. It sticks at one fifth of its length and refuses pointblank to proceed any further. I noticed, walking from the store with purchase in hand and a receipt in the other. Yet it was only the smallest pocket after all what did a little thing like that matte...

    I swallow the laughter that settles impatiently in my throat, itching to crawl up and release a steamy cloud in the drawn face of December, who’s disagreeable when it comes to such things. The last angle of my mind, unbending before infatuation, reminds me that the joke is still yet to be told and...

    He didn't know not to shine. To light this day as if any other, Radiating with false brilliance, To lend beauty to the casket, Mahogany gleaming in warm rays, But cloaked in black we cry....

    I watch as nature masks herself In flakes of snow that leap, from heights They fall in endless tandem Hiding her unveiled cruelty. In winter’s months when all is bare, No flowers to distract looking eyes, We see the gravestones wearing away And the remainder of unfinished good-byes, We see...

    You see the taxi, papier-mâchéd with ads She sees a magically oversized yellow bug You see the sidewalk cracks and abandoned shoes She sees a canyon and a cowboy's lost boots You see the morning commuters' furious faces in traffic She sees the mismatched puzzle pieces, cars not yet lined up ...

    Do all chances fade from reach When the hearts petal wilts Will I say just one more word If in desperation I stonily lie In a slumber where none can wake My sleeping form sleeps on But can I have just one last chance When I have long since gone To say a single word to those left behind Who...

    A trembling chin A wavering chord in the orchestra And then silence Someone messed up It’s always the same That moment When your holding back tears When the jarring note is just too much Everything’s too much to handle And someone’s confused I didn’t understand The audience isn’...

    It was trapped Within the glass to which it was encased It’s beauty everlasting By the glass blowers hands Hands, that acted from the minds own vision Creating as the creator wished The very essence of ideal Perfection is an ailment When set beside his work But he destroyed it In it’s ...
