clasp

little locket baby, gold and hinged…. uncurling, fetal, stacked and tucked neatly in the womb, in swaddling clothes, in old laundry, green leaves. my hand rests on my right breast… i’m a mother…

burrow

deep holes pockets, the insides of shoes, shoe trees.. dark dank sleepy. i’m a swaddled baby. i’m in a hole. i’m covered in dirt. i’m digging upward like houdini barely escaping that horrid “magic trick.” up up up

flour

dusty white chalkboard baby. even teachers learn to howl. one two, drenched in glue, in oil, in soaps, in massage lotions. green angry paws, blackberry feet. i’m a mess, you’re a mess. the worst is when you try to hide it.

vines

like trembling tentacles latching up around the ankle. a soupy way, the call of death, of beauty, of permanence; age, wisdom, and overbearing attachment

fabricated

crossing your toes over the other, one hand on the phone, the other clutching at the hem of your shirt. the louder you talk, the more convincing you become. remain aggressive–

plague

spotted, green, and itchy…. the solemn, stricken, pale man… lying in simple contrast

destined

like 3 million tiny arrows diverging, unstoppable and solid and gliding smoothly forward. jesus. worse than a firing squad. we all know how this will end. the worst though is waiting for that last blow–

beware

gold neon fluorescent like a blinking bead in the center of your forehead, or swirling like a mixed storm at the floor of girls’ stomachs, or hairs at the napes of necks, forearms, and legs, extended and upright

covert

like a hand-job underneath the tablecloth, sneaking into the back room; crossing your fingers behind your back, writing the answers on the table.

overt

bold and grotesque as a traffic guard’s vest, birds of paradise, parades… i can’t be too surprised the way words slip over the rim of your lips and off your tongue

tales

thinking of crouching at your feet, all haunches, knees, and elbowy love. i could be a cat. or a fireplace, listen, i want to go further with you and speak even of the future, the past–

withered

strange coincidence. received a poem with “withered” in its title in my inbox this morning. strange coincidence, strange intersection. blooming like a flaming car accident.

returned

the letter, old and almost too precise, too picturesque, like a 6th grade tea stained school project: “A Letter from John to Abigail Adams.”

flames

tall pillars. the oil paint strokes in luscious curls and waves up and down the canvas. the sad maiden in chains, eyes heaven bound, hands poetic in their recognizance

lamb

soft and fleshy like an inner thigh… red meat, suckling child, birth canals… blooming skin and raw.

instill

how to. again. and again. again. again. still and perfectly poised, heads raised like little ballerinas at the guillotine. this is how we do things. this is how we learn. think long and hard. you’re a grown-up now.

bleeding

she’s pretty in an unaffected way. motions to the ground beside her. he is tall. holds his breath. looks ahead. it’s hard.

embellish

ornate baroque moulding on the ceiling, the walls… the gold leaf on the spoons did nothing to calm my nerves or my growing sense of inferiority

sure

sure!

no:

sure.

or:

soil

retrieved your fingers dark moist and sticky then turned and collapsed neck cradled like a little ergonomic pillow. soil burrows into your tiny curls like ants

square

dark blue looming– IKEA surrounded by derelict warehouses– & worn vintage

hall

when we pass we have to avert my eyes, this is what we do now. i don’t like the way we tried to remodel by painting the walls a lime green. the fluorescent lighting never changed. now you are lit from above, your eyes your cheeks pockmarked and contoured by strange shadow

draw

the way she plays her violin her bow moves like through water thick and controlled.. i always thought, like drawing water out of a stone, pulling steady and smooth…
