Reflections, of sorts, in verse, of sorts.

Month: May, 2012

Yes

I’ll admit it’s true
Concerning you
I’ve recently contracted
an old schoolyard condition
commonly known
as staring problems

That Dress

many tasker
soft worker
giver, revealer, taker-away
moving like hot sunlight
in all directions

Explode

Explode
from these confines
Snake away
while your captors recover

Leave them only shrapnel

Wish

I wish I were better looking
had bigger hands
drove a car worth something
so when we walked
into the room together
they would understand
you’re wonderful

Morning

I start each day
afraid there will be no more words
then there you are
lovely and kind and instead
I cannot will my fingers my thoughts
to move and record fast
or well enough

Like That

Stop walking, turning
wearing clothes, wording
clearing crumbs and lipstick from
the corners of your mouth
longing, waiting by door frames while I
catch up, laughing
leeching these desires from
me. It’s distracting and
I need to
think of
other things thanks

At Night

Even my
bad dreams
are amess
with you.

Beach

Open water
laps at grainy
painted sand.

My toes will never reach.

Frame

You frame

everything I see
force me

to watch the world with custom eyes
grey and brushed with green

like yours.
