illuminated

when we see
reality
for what it is-
loyalists lying
to themselves
and everyone
asleep to wars
worlds away
weeping widows
wait for words
of hope

Empathy-
the illuminated veil

wagon

fell off again
in $3500 increments
scattered like stardust
across a national park
moonscape
but we all know
there’s no beauty
in self inflicted failure

greens

goddesses of grandeur
glowing gold in
forgotten fields of
harvested ideals
at once vibrant and
subtle
alive but
dying

tea

water weight
and endless
refills
Everything
is a science
if you look

below
the surface
show

nonfiction

life
became
30 minute increments
of what needs to be
what is, and isn’t
always another call
or payment
or chore

left all for me-
Saturn’s whore

misguided

pure but misguided
love-
if one sided

casual

standing in lines
drawn with methodical hands
droves of hoards of
mindless sunday
vacantly setting
another place at the table
to eat
to watch
to say
to sleep
awake and then again
casually pretending to know
the point

olive

taut and tan
the island glow
of foreign bodies
haunt and hate
the dowdy imperfections
i carry like luggage
always traveling
never vacationing

deity

long lines
of broken thoughts turned to theories
turned to thinking
thoughts
things are never
and always
what they seem
when seeming
is all
we see

abundant

so much
never enough
wanting makes fools
of feelings
yet still deceives
who believes
that things
will bring
fulfilling

possible

could be
that we
were meant to be
together
endlessly
love was a stranger I thought I knew
until there was you
until there was you

dough

thick clay flesh
pouring out through
virgin veils
desirous of fatty foods
indulgences innate
in all
the constant battle
between
bone and binge

legion

the sky
with her legions of aether
star stuff mixed with clouds
a moon, a sun
eternal beacons blazing
offbeat paths
for everyone

priorities

too many thoughts
turn to obsession
the need to possess
makes us destroy
petal perfect
balance
to own the pieces
someday

clever

geometric art
sways from hip
shoulders
hands are tools
i never use
unless holding a pen
large lips and cool
she’s a wildflower
in a field of dreams
i’ve never even seen

gladly

from here
i see possibilities
too many to count
and wonder why
frozen and practical
i chose none of them

bunch

global herds of hipster
magic
make me judge harshly
in this endless sea
who are we?

scent

passing through
the thick cloud of
people
poisonous plumes
of toxic fumes
assault my senses
until
his subtle musk
gently pulls me in
and he’s the entire
atmosphere

blaming

things to carry
weights meant to shame
no thing is
every thing

shaken

foolish confidence
believing in love
running without eyes
into clouds of incense
so beautiful it
doesn’t seem real

sublime

where wonder dared not go
here we are
standing at the edge
walking into mirages
we can touch

channel

mental radio waves
transmitting lengths of
static
what words will convey
all i’m trying to say?
too many nights
alone with faded dreams
leave me lost

marker

every tree stood
alike and unlike the rest
in a painted forest
lost and found
mean nothing
hand in hand
holding aimlessly
adrift between
what’s seen and dreamed
settling in between
those muddied markers

fortress

the soft belly
behind the fortress
years of battles lost and won
weathered by sun
re-imagined by moon
the light inside left
unlit until
he needed she
she needed he
the mythology of love
alive and burning
constellations in fields
at our feet

shred

pounds of wasted paper
clouding and cluttering
all of the spaces cleared
hanging on, just barely
to the ideal
of a perfect home

camping

winding waterways in wooded canopies
walking on air over gnarled roots
stronger and weaker at once
the unknown bliss
of all places
in his kiss
camping beneath
the silver night

figured

i figured the quiet on the other end
meant you didn’t love me anymore
as if all reality could change in one day,
but then again, it has before

i figured the silence meant that all was well
that if things were dire, you’d wish me to hell
as if the balance of all things lay with me
but then again, they usually do

fed

fed from fruit
fallen as stars
eyes burning meaning
into empty jars
upon the cellar shelf
dust did blind
lost unto myself
he didn’t seem to mind

direct

what we want
what we will
what we take
what we fill

things we love
things we fear
those we wish
would disappear

direct from you
straight to me
a crown of connected
sincerity

clear

cool and clear
after a tyranny of rain
slick sheets of sharp damp
but still finding warmth in your
candor
i kissed you first
before the champagne
past the last drop of rain
and well into morning
and for once
i was utterly there
in that moment
with you
