human decay

FREE WRITING


the roadkill on the sidewalk
i overstep
abandoned parking lot
the gang kids lear and howl
hooded snouts
the peel of sunburn
like lacewings cling 
to swinging fists
my footsteps turn to shouts
i pass
the haunted house
and obese 
apartment complex, graffiti 
green, traffic light
yellow, grass
hiding me
while faces scratched 
into vending machine
wink
i have forgotten where i am walking
and all i have seen
the city,
the city,

watch how she breathes.

parable of the atom

FREE WRITING


we strike the city walls
oh cheek, oh me
the bellow of the horn
soft
these prayers of galilee
god oh god
hear these fires
floods, locusts, blood
i stand above the sky
with my swords and my stones
look below
oh below
how sodom burns
with her blood, locusts, floods
holy oh
like salt, we still shiver
as the river nile floods
oh shivering
like locusts in the sun
these songs in our blood
and tears in their fall ...

Iliad

FREE WRITING


The water divides our bodies
As if the skin can never touch
-
In halo light of swimming pools
You are heavenly
-
Beautiful as greek marble
Statued, carved by waves and kisses
-
Chin sharp, lips curled, and eyes
Their Aegean blue
-
I am drunk on your words (and their silences)
The moonlight like mercury
-
My muse;
We drift as like lilies
-
Search me
This myth I sing
-
As if you could ever touch
Leaving...

sand grains

FREE WRITING


trilled, my trillion lies
this sea of white
under footstep and strife
the sunsets pap and pinken
yawn as cherries
the apple seeds black 
and the sight
of my body 
the open arms, folded
like seabirds over sand
i flight, i
-
run, counting grains
counting hours as if they are days
the pathways widen
o, crescent moon
like spirits gauzy, 
you hate
and i run out of words
tongues of leaves, tongue
with their roots and their
dates, i  ...
