flash in the pain
Peekaboo Cluster


Billy loves him some bugs! Look how those little prayer bugs follow him around, and the red ants. That loser can't get his dog to behave. Yesterday, my brother took Billy's lunch; we laughed. Ain't seen my brother yet today.


hot winter sunlight
kisses the floorboards briefly
I migrate


lucid now
last night before antibiotics
I knew I wasn't

more broken whales
but do we act responsibly
still eat their flesh


Sick yesterday. Better today, but not great. Got nothing done yesterday. You're looking at what I accomplished today.

Her burning feet of fire

Can't you hear it?
She'd asked me last night,
Something's calling,
And she went to the door,
Would have gone out into the night.
Go to bed, I said,
School tomorrow
thing's out there calling you
But in the morning her bed was empty
Covers undisturbed
And she was gone
Outside her prints in the wet new sidewalk
Laid the day before
Deeply impressed and far apart
She'd been running,
I saw her footprints changing,
Found her burst trainers,
The wet cement pushed out
Around prints elephants might make,
Larger, farther apart,
Then shallower, fainter,
She was flying.
