a hand to look at but not to hold
The rippling furrowed
It lives on
in colored lashes
that detonate
across the skyline,
we subsist in this
small mug
of disjointed structures
filled to its brim
overturned across the land;
we are only at the break of dawn.
Here is one of the few things
that never ceases to
make me swallow
a little more of the breeze,
my stupefaction
and only this
reduces me, every morning
to a reticence
that envelops the
as I exhale.
Even while I lose sight of the
moment, week, season, year
decade, eon;
I will never be met
with an ending,
because every shred
of warmth I pass on
will be, by another,
shaped into sunsets
and hopefully

dominate abandoned stairways
clouds loom
like awnings over the world.
They are
the things we cannot stand and
refuse to endure;
The things that scare us witless,
that put the fear of God into us
the side of life that
is shaded a Stygian, pitch black…
But we will be there
to meet them, arms at hand
at a horizon that stretches vertically;
With clouds bursting on the left
and the torrential downpour
seeping through to the other side,
where stars die in grotesque
lopsided cosmic
and we
are born
from their dust.

oil spill
Your timing;
It broils away at
the shreds of pretentious
thought -
I wish the poems
I wrote could incite tears
not to thaw my cheeks
but yours,

The knowledge that,
home alone,
only your devices
keep you from
deepening the dent
in the basement wall…
You will yourself to just
break something,
if not with your fists
then by drawing crosses over
the assurances you gave to her,
so they may be engulfed in your firestorm,
a dereliction of your duties,
a step over the line.
You endorse that chain of consciousness
that permits you to identify
true happiness from status.
Like the rest of us,
you’d rather have a name
and seventeen stitches
in your abdomen
than to deliver
constant tirades
that are never
to be heard.

peculiar rock formations
We have everything we
and more.
There is food to be discarded,
to be left to perish,
air conditioning to be left running
while all the windows are open,
acts of worship to be performed
under a haphazard candlelight,
and expletives to fit within
every sentence,
All the while,
we become sexists,
racist homophobics,
proselytizing atheists,
we run around in the maze
we have designed for ourselves.
we are those same
sacrificed in the name
of cosmetics.
We are internet trolls
proclaiming ourselves poets,
we are the animal feces in the street
to which the government assigns
the honor
of being the work of a con artist.
We have been provided
the ability to
defer our
to play havoc
with our own systems of
and to do things
the mind says no to
but to which our bodies,
in no way verbose,
The impulse
splits your head
like a peal of thunder;
but we are not as much
exponents of the pebbles
in our str

First Love: life without parole
First love,
no matter how true or faithful
clings to you
like lacquer on a coffee table
worn down, buffed smooth
from years of abuse and neglect
but never fully chipped away
and always brushed on
fresh and wet
when given attention
my love for you
sits heavy in my wrists, my fingertips
guiding them to trace your name
over and over and over
digging deep valleys and canyons
through my neurons and synapses
so that when I die
the medical student gifted with my body
shall read our story on my grey matter
as clearly as his textbook
first love,
no matter how true or faithful
takes a different piece
from each person
serial killers take mementos
and everyone falls in love
my blood sings and slips sluggishly
when you walk into a room
branching into my lungs
with sick glee and anticipation
of your scent wafting into my nose
to bring up times of us I would forget
if forgetting was something first loves did
first love,
no matter how true or faithful
licks across your body
painting rivers like stretc

For But a Blink
there is little grey left
in a sky going white
       we are too soon
            to win the struggle
            for memory, history
       far too early-on
       to be trusted
 see me through
       me you us
    we    found everything
       and lost it
       in the hot blurry
                state shift
                of the ember
  we pretended we weren't
a burning window
    and this brief
    mess of man
              is crystallized
              for but a blink
    in the snap
    and crash
       of its cr
