Reflections, of sorts, in verse, of sorts.

Month: March, 2012

WANTED

Offered you the sky
wrapped in cloudy
ribbons. You said
it never fit
and had no use
so exchanged it
for my blue
envious heart.

Treasure

Warm and smooth and beautiful
ribboned by a love-red vein
you are the only stone I see
along a jagged shore

Everyday Sunrise

As warm and becoming
as overlooked and taken
for granted
as you

That Loneliness

I carry it
like a bag full of oranges
stopping to savor the secret
familiar weight of each citrus stone
at every repose
before every new spring
in this orchard.

Dear Lighthouse,

With your beacon
signal everyone
who would approach
that we are here now
and want to
be alone.

Friday After Work

Watch the busy barmaid. Shift
from shoe to shoe. Talk
and say just anything
only so you’ll stay.

“Wouldn’t it be funny
if one day in the future

this was how
we met?”

Like Now

Sometimes
you make me
nervous
so I say
stupid things
and too much things
too

I Float

Pull me into rocket ships
with only space enough
to close myself around you.
Now launch and commandeer
these hands
all over
our new world.

Any excuse
to talk
to you.
Blue.
