Words Have Been Broken


I’ve Pictured 5. 17. 2018

May 17, 2018

The world portrayed me as a square

waiting for me to fit into a box

so that the man in line can compare.
Look at you, not perfect, not right.
Don’t speak, shut up, don’t fight.

If I don’t say words.
If I don’t speak my mind.

When can I say it is time to find…

Life Figured

May 11, 2018

Life figured out you…

From the way the door whispers politely and quietly.

Life figured a plan…

When taps from neighboring droplets slash the bedroom window pane, ever so slightly.

Life figured a hello…

Speaking so vibrantly across your shining face, all nicely.

Life figured he loved you…

As he holds you every night, every day, and forevermore, so tightly.

If apologies were easy 2.27.2018

If apologies were easy than


could put band-aids over a deep wound

We would have discovered

how to fix an arm

a leg

or even a heart…

If apologies were easy then

I would suture the wounds myself

knees kissing the dirt

as if I kissed your forehead in the morning or day

or evening

Trying to salvage every resonance of “I’m sorry”
