You do not understand how long I have waited
To write this. 
You've made a fool out of me-
I read love poetry
Online, and found I could now quite
Enjoy it-
Not sparingly, as an isolated case of a dreamer
Who had once been played by dreamlessness;
It had been bleak,
To yearn, unpracticed or non-esteemed
And the mirror trusted me not. 

Those bruises stood me up. 
In my dreams- resting on dreamlessness-
A red branch scalded me silly.  ...

Fourth of December

FREE WRITING

I could be that cloak
Shaken to dust

Adrift, unambitious
To match an avoidance
Of the poor woman's hand while it

Learn from me nothing
Holding still the cell
And when the bars lurgee

Learn instead from
Me
How to be
Nothing
