Destined

A wood ant
On my windshield
At 50 miles
An hour
I wonder
How long he held on
When he left
Where he landed
And if
I’m still holding on
Or have I already
Been
Brushed off
By a breeze
Or a low tree limb
Did we end up
In a destined place
Or sadly
Seperated
From where
We should have
Lived

A Touch

I risk
Barefoot
On my cool kitchen floor
To spite
The slicing shattered
Glass
From the night before
I love
Barefoot
Connected and exposed
Tonight
It’s worth a bit of bleeding
Just to feel
A touch of those

Baby spider
Weaving
On my bathroom sink
Don’t worry
I’ve got time
And careful space
For you
Your mother lived
Here safe
And sweetly

Held

I dreamt again of being
Held so safe even
From myself

Phantosmia

My sense
Of smell
Burns quick today
A fireplace
Not used
Since fall
Cigarettes
I don’t smoke
At all
Dinner burned
And scraped
Last week
Sage barely used
Because I’ll never
Be clean
A candle
Blown out
Years ago
These walls
Ablaze
And crumbling so

Drive

I drove parallel
To a funeral train
We snaked our way
To an obscure grave
I was pulled along
Quite without my will
In my memory
I remain there still

Curios

Curios
And curiosities
A heady mix
Of knick knacks
And dark
Dreams
Useful things
And tragedies
I find
I cannot leave

I am no fading flower
But a vining weed

Last Night

•July 26, 2021 • Leave a Comment

I dreamed of someone
Unseen by me
Who whispered in my ear
Of love so close
My cheek was warmed
My body leaned toward
Instead of away
And my wild hair
Swayed on command
As if tamed
By a slight summer breeze

Undone

Smashing glass
And slicing jeans
So neither thing
Can ever be
Undone
