In the dark hours

Maybe the day will see you brave and welcoming Perhaps by nightfall you’ll reach for my hand When the dark hours come cold, a kiss By morning a song of the dream

She wanted to do it after the pains of realization wore off, in clarity, with a shift of non-emotional precision just as she had moved through her life. The aloneness had been her only companion all the years of science until the whole system shut down, the numbers like rain fell before her, suddenly they […]

The day the sun came out and I like rain Fell

I’m waiting in the halls all these years with this damned lock. Sometimes I think about the ultimate act of rebellion. There’s no alone. No company. No anything. I seem to let everyone down, even when I’m trying, even more so when I love. What’s this feeling that creeps up my throat. Who are these […]

So we’ve come to the end of the line, in the disappearing, then reappearing light of the moon under the spell of an eclipse. This is it, the moment you’ve all been waiting for! In the blink of an eye it’s all changed. I took a vow this night, but I should not say of […]

GEODESY

Saturday, December 18, 2010 at 10:07 pm

The dark season comes like death in sleep, it creeps in when the night and dream have seduced you from the days light. My Geode love, I see the core and smell the waxy wick of a candles flame gone out. You are bare before me now,  I know of that crystalline interior. I will […]

Through the smoke

I recall the thrill of dancing on stage in gay bars as a teen escaped in the night. The queens pruning and fawning over me like mother geese, blinding lights and waves of cheer were intoxicating while being rained on in one dollar bills, like a stripper. These places were left over speakeasy salons hidden […]

In the end………Nothing!

I hear you now Granny, the words you said from that last call before you died. “They’re all just distractions, I wish I would not have been so distracted!” I’m wondering about distraction these days myself, though you’ve been dead 18 years. It’s just that I got this pain in my gut and I wanna […]

To Whom It May Concern

Dear Eyelid Slowly, I adore you in ways that you cannot see, But if I may take a moment to pause on the way your beauty moves me physically, How the long sharp angle of your nose incites feelings of lust in me, The delicate line of your lips, which seem to be so red, […]

Softly past my periphery

Wednesday, December 8, 2010 at 10:16 pm

I see no end to this torment, your stillness, it’s bottomless It seems the world has lost what was once sacred I hear the song of geisha softly past my periphery and find no way to hone it I do not want common things Sex, you are no longer needed in customary ways Food, you […]

At first sight, secretly

Saturday, December 4, 2010 at 4:54 am

When I first saw you, you did not see me, or, I did not see that you saw me. I introduced myself plainly, You were icy — A year passed before I saw you again, eyelid slowly over with a blink. When I sat for the first time looking into your eyes, your gravity taunting, […]
