Best website ever - scary cute.  Think of the complete opposite of the way this type of thing usually happens.

Turn it up.  "Thoughts arrive like butterflies, but he don't know...."

 





dragon





Minutes, perhaps a moment left alone.  Is all.
Alone, and then at home.

Do you expand like I do into the room?
Do you re-make the world into the world you want to be known?

Forgotten, a thousand times.  Misunderstood, a million times.
Talked over, every day.  Walked passed, every room.

Here, not here.  No more.

Push your hair back over your innocent head,
Let him kiss your flesh.


Then eat the dragon
bite by bite
all over
again.

Adam didn't eat the fruit
Eve held.

He ate Eve.

Up her arm to her neck
Down to her knees and
Everything between.

Good and evil. Life.

Chasing her into the exile.
Mistaken for damnation.

His mouth tasted the first
Salvation.

From her and from her ever after.

But his fathers knew better.
And made her
The silent shadow,

Of their murder.

for M.......





I don’t suppose
the birds
build their nests pondering
their transcendent repose.

How long
will this shelter last,
what
verses
will they
inscribe on my
grave.  But,

            I will take that twig.
           
She lands invincible,
seizes what was to me invisible,
and flys,

muscular and victorious—

a red feather left there
fluttering beautiful
in the
wind.

oh my





My oh my the years go by.
Streets grow empty,
Or too busy.

With you,
Holding the future.

Candle stalks burn orange and soft,
Limber but they don’t bend.

I mistook my time for something I
Could recall, and relive.  And

Position once more, perhaps, again.
Lust, and want, and charity.  Equal.

The curl of your hair around my finger.

I took the time to watch my life,
That time narrows to a closing lens.

Dark.  And light.  And forgiveness,
And wrath.
