Foundation of Roses

Foundation of Roses I used to come ev’ry day And lay a rose at your door. When my roses were receiv’d I came to lay sev’ral more. But now all of those roses Are just measures of the past, While what the present brings now Is one more rose to be cast. And right there at your doorstep, With a wink and...

I Came Upon a Stray

I Came Upon a Stray I came upon a stray, malnourished and wounded; Somebody had broken her heart and left her alone and scared— Maybe it wasn’t the first time, but I had to earn her trust In order to help her understand that it was okay To be who she is in spite of all the problems, The darkness, th...

The Cupcake, the Woolly Mammoth and the Gargoyle

The Cupcake, the Woolly Mammoth and the Gargoyle I asked Her to turn me into a cupcake; She told me there were no more cupcakes to be made. I asked Her to turn me into a woolly mammoth, But there were none of those left either. In the end I settled to be a gargoyle And She seemed to be okay with tha...

Insecurity

Insecurity The seagull called with a wail, The paved lot beneath its feet, The gray of its wings fluttering. Three black birds Descended from the trees, Encircled and formed a perimeter. Seizing an opportunity, Wailing and squawking, The gull took flight And maneuvered in a circle As the black birds...

Evidence

Evidence When I initiate conversations I have a gentle way of Allowing you to feel comfortable enough To speak to me unreservedly, And when I am around you I have a tranquil demeanor that Allows you to feel pleasant in my company, And sometimes when we speak It shows. When you don’t initiate convers...

Re: Sigrid Bermuda [tentative title]

Thank you.

I am to see her again very soon... but I am freshly aware that she has been seeing someone on occasion who she is likely interested in. I am not sure how to handle this.

Re: Sigrid Bermuda [tentative title]

I didn't think structure was important to me until I began a few edits and realized that if there was something I wanted to add it had to be placed precisely so. I've read this over and over and over and, in my head, as I recall the events playing out, the structure is perhaps too perfect. And as fa...

Re: Sigrid Bermuda [tentative title]

I realize not a lot of people are willing to sit through this. I believe I've written an engaging, true story. It is very personal to me, and to the title character, whose name has been slightly altered, though I have not let her read this yet. Nearly everything in this has to do with half a day I s...

Sigrid Bermuda [tentative title]

A note before reading: Yes, this poem is very long. It is a true story. Sigrid Bermuda [tentative title] Curled up in a ball, The poor fetal thing clung to itself, Frightened, Mistaking its shortcomings as a mouse For the world it was to inherit Underneath a small projection at the substructure Of a...

They Shoot Poets, Don't They?

They Shoot Poets, Don’t They? We step into the lion’s cage without a whip, The applause of the audience vociferous in its enthusiasm For impending peril, And we threaten the beast with words, With a vocabulary of pejorative wit and cunning, An expression of defiance, insolence, audacity, An idiom of...

Dream of the Waking Man

Dream of the Waking Man Take the beauty and the truth from thy face, Unmask the grinning skull there in its place Whence out of the furrow its threats are charm’d: Anticipating Death it is disarm’d. Prisoner of nothingness, twist and writhe; Your body condemn’d to chains loose and lithe. Shall thy e...

Bring Me the Heart of Carmen Hernandez

Bring Me the Heart of Carmen Hernandez Bring me the heart of Carmen Hernandez, A volcano beneath her breast At the mercy of the wind whose hand is A cold fist of ashen unrest. The pale sun confronts the bright face of Death And collects the breeze in hands cupp’d, Extended, in off’ring its whisp’rin...

In Translation

In Translation In the mind’s inebriation, In the heart’s sobriety, In the disambiguation Of the soul’s anxiety From the water’s irrigation Of reason’s compliancy And from the wine’s dehydration That emotes defiantly There exists a conversation That will answer quietly The question of this translatio...

Re: A Relationship Is Like a House

Were the definition of love to lie in the eye of the beholder then the definition would have to assume a physical and aesthetic role derived from empirical data. No such thing exists with love; at best they are illusions. I would not ever argue that love is one thing and not another, so I could neve...
