Bound

 

A fuse running short
ticking moments
of breath and heart
Adventure lies ahead
a trip
unknown
of which
there is
no way out
This
fun maker
this
trickster
to this
fuse
I
am
bound

Night

 
I walk at night.
Feeling my way through
darkened paths
Peering into lives
I’ve never met
Cloaked figures
behind
satin curtains
resting
on matchiing sofas

drinking
tea
or booze
Blues of electric
light flicker
images of
make believe
while the sky
darkens to hues of
loneliness
Slits of light pierce
the indigo sky.

My footsteps mimic earths
pounding heart

3PM

 

Bare feet beneath
a yellow dress
embroidered friends
play across
a heart
bleach eyed
baby doll
frizz head

held close
while sitting on a twisting swing
around
round
and round
while the
diaper
line
snaps
against
grey skies

Soil

Earths rich memory
Wedged under cracked nails

Remnants of mothers who washed clothes by hand

pale children

buckets of kittens
bird feces
celebrations

vomit

smoked cherry tobacco

diamond anniversaries
laughter
We live

we die
All return
to
earths

bed
of worms

Afternoon

Sleek fingers of fog
caress

hilltops
winding through leaf
and limb
Blanketing sailboat masts

Softening cityscapes

Obscuring lovers

Silencing
open mouthed
whispers
of desire and breath
Breathing as one
While vapid droplets
etch
a window pane
