The universe must be a teenage girl. So much darkness, so many stars.
--me


There’s an ink-stained world of illusions
spreading from tear to shining tear.And I raise my flags of hands to the sky
and sing for the individual I am.
One tree is not another. Root, leaf, bark, fruit, petal.
I am an orchard. All is here.
And the birds all black with strange ashes
stay on the light-torn rose
that raises its tasseled face
from field to sky in a thorn of hope.
