Where will weeps

12/12/05


where will weeps
and wails, wanting
admission. Everyday
counting breath as pearls
words as diamonds
conversationis gold is
sunlight this bluebright
skysea, floating near and
liquid horizantal these cloudships
could carry me untethered
to nerve lines. Let me lasso signal
for instruction, connect me to me
reconnect circuits, cloud’s light
space instruct me, demonstrate

Sysiphusa

12/8/05

Sysiphusa

crows wearing hip ties
caw bleak hypotheticals
in bedridden ears
fill blank hospital room
with musty feathers, farts
frustration. peck at resolve
fray optimism’s thin gauze
probe peaceful numb to pain
feel that? broken toothpick
jabbed in thigh. sucker punch
breathe baby, breathe
each tomorrow disproves
yesterday’s hostile croakings
regrows shred plucked heart
