#spiders

spiders come from the not-self
leaving a trail of footprints
wet in the rain
to your door
as the dark earth
calls out for its own

#unquiet spirits

I wait, stay up late,
listen for the creak of
the unquiet spirits
that tell me
to swim upstream
and listen
to what I used to know

#silence

your indent on our bed has gone
the sheets are long since scentless
but the silence, in itself, remains
as another form of argument

#between

Dusk falls
between the trees
as nightjars and moths
trace lines
of angular momentum
and the sky recedes
to an aspect
of light and shade

#between

Night fades to early light
with nothing to explain
the silence gathering
between us
but the better man
I meant to be

#deep

out in the tundra
there is never
the gentle end
you long for
just eye teeth
that pursue you
for a glint of sky
deep in the bone

#micropoetry

#reach

raining, my reflection reaches out
into streetlight puddles
an echo of my otherself, given up
from deep within this redeeming earth

#spiders

You tell me you can love at will
as I watch a spider
watching a fly
waxing and waning
before finally submitting
to the passing of time
