Poetry Blogs (2012, pain)
I met a woman at the Blue Nile.
Our first encounter was her attempting to kiss my face. She seems to be in her mid-late fifties/early sixties. She began to tell me that she is okay, over and over again. She began to cry. She told me her sun died. He OD'ed at 39 years old. She watched him die, with his head between the toilet and the sink. Her other sun blamed his brother's death on her. Sh...

You left my body
before you were born.
My freezing body
floated toward the light,
only to be returned
to life by grace
and a prayer.
I was glad to
be alive but bewailed
my unborn child.
My child, did you

Sprawling intestines looped around the world
My pen describes; this pain is ill-defined.

I loved you once as deeply as any man could Will
and, if the darkest truth were known,

So farewell my love and lover once
and, as lovers ever true,
we will live and laugh and love again
like lovers that are new

Far better I'm left to rot here in solitary
And its ...
