There you were across the way
Eyes of silver, skin dark grey
A green/black shirt on a blue/brown skirt
And hair down to your needs
The sharpest violet you’ve ever seen
Whether by chance or by fate
Our eyes […]
Carefree and friendly
Eager to experience
A fan of rocks and drawing
Friendly and friendless
Getting into trouble
Interested in reading
Working hard, more awkward
Voracious in two […]
It isn’t in my way
The table is nice and clear
But it wasn’t there yesterday
Really, it shouldn’t be there now
Only I can choose, but mom and dad disprove
Knowing this I swish my tail and shrug
Either way, I […]
Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Eliot
Do I dare to eat a peach?
Or nectarine of yellow and sweet?
Do I dare to strike the clouds?
Demand an answer from them aloud?
Am I a fool who cannot ea […]
Kill the guards
Kill the men
Hi risk hi rewards
Just avoid the children
Once a refuge, now it’s not,
Once a safehouse, now you’re […]
Dear Mr. Man,
I hope this finds you well, up there in your high tower
Untouched by our unrest. Blessings and peace upon-
Oh, who am I kidding, let’s start again.
Dear Mr. Man,
How do you sleep at […]
The rain hadn’t stopped in days
Constant but light it dug into the psyche
A consistent pitter-patter on every surface
Some people got used to it…
Local radio and news stations had gone o […]
Walking through the city
Silence pervades each corner
Everything is somewhat gritty
Caution as we move south
A glint of silver, a flash of red
Murder in the daylight
Your turn to take her head
Pocketing the […]
To start there was fire,
combustion, and coagulation
Sulfur and oxygen
Moisture so warm you could not breathe
Without drowning and boiling alive
Not that anything was living here.
Then came the rocks
The land knows you, even when you are lost
It wraps around you, smooth tendrils of grass
Or sometimes the bracken underbrush
Forming a path to your destination
Conjoining with you inside this […]
Sit down and don’t touch.
It says curse so that means?
“We remove the curse!”
Yes-n-no it means we don’t touch it!
leave it alone
find the way to
“spread it! Like jam!”
My lord […]
In those private new people
Anything around had crim
That’s where the whole thing
Decided to feel
Dear me -8 and no one believes you,
No one will ever appreciate the effort you put into every act of kindness,
Not until you’ve given up on love and respect, not until your life is a mess.
You will tell […]
Damn, she cursed as moonbeams floated through the fog
The coffee was cold again and she had none to blame but herself
She cursed again, attracting the attention of a small brown dog
As she hit her elbow […]
Good morning kitten, it’s time for your leash.
Out in the world, we’ll see all the trees
You can climb them but don’t run off too quickly
We’ll both get stuck.
Fine, you can go a little further.
We had 3 things in common,
Same shoes, same hair,
even the same birthday.
We were strangers:
And different countries altogether.
Yet somehow I’m on trial for a crime […]
Two black bags neatly packed
Soft like the sunset
Bitter like Regret
There on the hillside,
Bright like their eagerness
Present like egress
Travelers meet disrupted
Sudden like the limelight
Keys still inside though I know
Now going through glass
