solemnity

entry picture

Once you had your images.

Cardiac tamed by the smile

behind the name.

 

Secrets that you’ve

hymn drawn

to your later

arrow eyes.

 

You are my pen

after the punishment.

 

Once you had your heart,

But it came out garbled.

Remember to Float

entry picture

Remember to Float

They asked me why I do not fly,
I told them it’s not that I don’t know how too,
I just need to be closer to the earth right now.

They asked me why I do not close my eyes
I told them it’s because I see so much better when they are open

They asked me how I move so quickly 

I tell them that I am pure electricity

It’s important to never get too close
Never stand in a puddle and gr...

Forlorn

 

Bring me someone new fast

 

No wait,

Bring me someone who is fast

and maybe together we can fall 

through these sleepless nights

like stars that burn out,

we will slip awkward, as we dip

fluttering like ash

we will darken the summer sky

filling it with heavy grays and whites

 

 We will become a flash of tumbling embers,

just built t...

Chrysalis

Chrysalis 

Water

 Throat

 Heart

 Root

 

I am surprised to hear my voice

so bold and sure of it’s self

as if it weren’t my own

 

and for a second there

I have to wonder.

 

I listen again,

 

There is a distant sound

of harmony and balance,

they are bleeding together

the masculine with the feminine

Postcard Perfect

entry picture

 

Post Card Perfect

 

It was New Years Eve

when you dipped me.

 

 You leaned in for a kiss.

I should have known then that eventually you'd drop me.

 

And

 the snow fell all around

a sailor and a nurse.

 

After the war had ended,

she stopped bandaging his wounds,

he bellied up to a bar

&

the photographed just faded away.

Green Grass

entry picture

 

Just so You Know

The day you left, 

it rained for three fucking days

and man,

you still wouldn't wash away.


So I prayed out loud to the girls

with more grass

than that green grass

that we used to make love in.


I waited there sea sick,

in sea of emerald green

swaying back and forth

all around me.


Just then, the air picked up,

making the wheat fields arch 

a...

It Rhymes

entry picture

Girls are like tiny diamonds,
as they slip through your hand
Boys are like plasma
dripping back to the sea
Like metal they rust
You can smell them both erode
They tell me it’s the salt in the water
that makes them both corrode

Underwater Creature

entry picture

I am an underwater creature

much faster than yourself

 

I am smoothed out

by the waves

your words a thousand dull lead sinkers around my neck

 

 I can not hear you here

 

Here, I belong to no one, 

not even myself

 

In fact, I do not exist

 

There is tranquility in nothingness,

no need for oxygen

or cigarettes

 

Cl...

Candy Apple Love

entry picture

 

I loved you once.

Really, I did.

 

It was a sweet candied apple, kind of love

a legs wide open, love

a love that knew each and every one of my secrets.

Love?

 

Do you remember the night 

that I wrote testaments across your body?

 

You a moonlite canvas pale as washed wool.

 

I dream...

Joan of Arc

entry picture

 


(part 1)
 
Loud, brash, sweet thing
Bring me some water to wet my whistle
For you
Love only lasts ten minutes at a time
 
Only this time
The time is mine
So go on over
Lay it down
 
Cause all your cards ain't showin
And my hands are full
 
I'll drop this heavy load
When words spill soft and free
Meaning what they sho...

Sugar Revolution

entry picture

 


Be my sugar 
 
My revolution
 
Bring me fruit in the dead of winter
 
 as tears roll from your face.
 
Be sweet rebellion on hot summer nights.
 
Burn messeges onto thick leaves
 
and press them hard against my bedroom window.
 
 
Stand naked under the naked moon
 
Be raw
Be real
Speak true

Some Times I Change My Mind

entry picture

 


 Sometimes I change my mind,
 
but mostly just the direction.
 
I think I’ll run into the woods, the next time I’m menstruating
 
and devour some wolves.
 
 
Or throw cotton balls at the Willamette river,
 
just to see how truly absorbent they are.
 
I’ll make a contest of it,
 
like the ol' school one's of "how ...

Broken Crystals

entry picture

 

 



Crystals cover the ground

 

They sky is covered in clouds

 

They say that white is the color of absence

 

Just like the caterpillars in the spring,

eating all the pretty leaves,

 

you in a swift second

blow in

stealing all the color from the sky.

 

Gorging you...

Vapor

entry picture

Stand back
and let me rise.

Or each glance I throw
will burn through you
like grapefruit acid
spit in both eyes.

I can no longer take the heat,
I am dissipating like the clouds that form each morning
above the Willamette River.

Each morning they are torn apart
and left to there own foolishness.

Soon I too will be an apparition
and you will be pawing at the early winter sky
with all your kitten love.


By the w...
