cloud consult
-ations will now be considered;
cobble me some semblance of sense
from this clean-slate sky.

You and I have some time
to kill. Let’s contemplate
these sands, stand
at the edge of all this salt
and let all else
fall.

pick me up,
she says, and you do.
but so much
more to it
than that: edge, layers, center.
life is sweeter, still.

ocean heart

photo copy 10
it starts with sway,
sand in toes
………………………….and breeze-swept soul.

rim her in salt,
……and whisper-wave her loose
……………………..to sky.

when that moon broods
……………………….by, reminds her
she is waning.

(Pre)Ponderance Under a Periwinkle Moon


How fitting it be
that we’re still sitting
here un
-wittingly, wild and waiting.

How un
-formed and -formulaic,
this transformation formerly
known as in
-formation.

How pensive, this pen
-chant for pencils
and song, this perpendicular
pendulum, tick-tocking
along.

How happenstance,
this haphazard dance, this
happiness from mis
-hap.

And perhaps
how true,
how you,
however blue,
this breath
in lieu of chance.

Process

She brews
the coffee, sits
and stews; mellow-stirs
the words until
they want to play.

Today:

She overdoes
the joe, shakes
and makes due.
Begs the words
to stay.
