Reflections, of sorts, in verse, of sorts.

Month: April, 2012

With You

With you
all over me
we become
invisible

Bathe

You bathe
in the clouds
drip dry
in the sun
My heaven

New York City

Something else
around each corner.

I used to just walk and walk
find a diner
order coffee
repeat. I know

she misses me.

Already

I order Coke, water, coffee, milk
anything that will not tempt me
beyond logic. Because already
even sober
with you here
looking, walking, talking
reaching for my hand
I’m only just able
to stop
from weeping.

Ready!

When we are in the same space
usually separated by a crowd
secretly I steel myself
just in case
this time you decide
improbably
from across the room
to leap into my arms

Hold Me

Hold me up Darling
lest I let the wind
sway me. While I teeter
wait
help me breeze
through this hurricane.

Train Stop Jesus

Save me,
train stop Jesus!
Stretch out
grab my hand
and pull me off
this guilty rusty ride.

I remember

the way a strand of hair
blown forward
got stuck in the corner of that mouth
and you brushed it away
kept talking
like nothing wonderful or extra-ordinary
had occurred.

Found

Found your lost kiss
abandoned, bent, and
humming Merlot melodies.

I gladly plan
to return it
then accept
with eager and nervous attention
any small reward.

Love Tag

He tags the local overpass
like a punk kid
with her initials.

Sometimes these little e-poems
just aren’t enough.
