pocket multiverse

March 21, 2011

To write a single verse:
a single perfect sentence
that rhymes in every sense
with everything around it-
its music, so intense
to flash through time
and speed through space
a single, pear shaped slice,
a pocket multiverse.

wolves – in our nature

March 21, 2011

(via G.M.)

midnight run

March 13, 2011

Don’t gun down werewolves,
they’re people
having a midnight run.

 

purple

March 12, 2011

It’s easy to forget
from within our purple imaginary
the colorless comfort
of knowing nothing beyond
and nothing above
a tragically tasteless topography.

Resistance

March 12, 2011

They saw you again,
you felt them as well,
though hidden in their maquis
you knew right away
whose eyes had to be
on you…

Those sharp bayonets
burned holes in your chest
and spread through like spring,
rushing to melt with merciless zest
that last patch of snow-
well, happy unrest

to you too.

oaths

March 7, 2011

Tilting her head
she adoringly said:
‘for ever.’

Raising his brow,
he said with a bow:
‘for now’.

hoover

March 7, 2011

 

I found the clay

of your imaginary Adam

waiting for me

all limp and lifeless

on the bedroom floor.

Don’t come begging for fire now –

I only have a gush of water,

 a gust of wind,

and a hoover.

riddle

March 5, 2011

That first breath of air
after diving too deep,
a hand promptly held
when you started to slip

 

complexity

March 2, 2011

Fascinating, isn’t it,
this passionate propensity
with which we all appear to nurture
the vicious virtue of
‘complexity’
