How to Brood

Choose focus
make it burn
do no listen
do not learn
imagine details
ruminate lines
sure guarantee
trouble in mind

Heavy

Do not enter
if you can’t remain silent
This room is
heavy with the sounds
of my choices.

Write

Hey hey
you you
Get up
Stand up
Pick up
your slim
blue pencil
I need a ride
I need you to
write me over
to the Other Side.

Sherry

Still young your
north star shines bright
yellow hair your gaze ever clear
We are laughing between walls
My blindness my blindness
let you slip quiet, disappear

Avatar

She said her name
aloud when he asked
though later alone
in his bed
he wondered if
Avatar was really
the word she’d said.

Back

We’re waiting here for you
You left so long ago
It’s hard to remember
You said you’d soon return
We’re waiting here for you
It’s hard

Flight

I burned all your letters in
a campfire last night
word sizzle whispers
white moon shining bright
hot licks flick flutter
alphabet flight up
into starlight.

Beginning

Day 1:

I did not read the news;
I rearranged small stones
in fine sand
went walking silent streets
after dusk
instead.
