Suspended in the moment between dusk and morning light,
the relentless sun lies peacefully asleep under the sky.
The breaking dawn leaves shadows and takes away silhouettes,
so the faceless forms you […]
The purple flowers along the stream
Shrivel under your step
The wind tearing at my hair makes it impossible to see the hillside path ahead. Soon enough the rain washes away the horizon. I […]
In your head, there are endless paths traced with every choice
You see things like an artist
Sleep easy, dream boy
Citizens of protocol

The cats in the yard sleep in the sun, stretched out where everyone can see.
The cats in the yard climb on cars and chase bugs across the parking lot, without a second guess.

Curse the saint who shares with the ungrateful, and damn the monk who gives without reconciliation
While I love all that I have, it is hard to forget that I am poor in many ways.
I am happy and hungry, […]

Endless reasons to […]
As she stands beneath the trees,
Dancing with the sunshine that falls through the leaves,
Facing the north, so that the left side of her body catches golden fire in the evening glow,
I am reminded:
What will it take to show the world that I’m worth keeping?
Burn in the waste of all the time you spent, your precious moments
Unfold into me

Many nights, the apprentice discovers him leaning up against his desk,
Crinkled eyes closed,
With his sketchbook open in his lap and his old feather […]

Ugly makeshift collagen, stitching over my damage
Nourished and replenished with […]
