Cutter

Arbitrary landscapes in a flutter ’round the cellarAre they moving interstellarBeing fortune and the tellerNot the sold and not the seller of the all consuming clutter Piling in monuments of other minor momentsWhere we measure in componentsBeing growth and how we’ve grown itInto fountains full of foment fit to fade like just another Trivial pursuitContinue reading “Cutter”

Tranquilized

I set a set of shacklesOn my unassuming wristsSo that in search of tender trystsI found a string of jaded jackalsWhile my care and my concern all shrank to cries And lost, there in the brambles,Where beneath the swirling mistsI looked for longing that I’d missedAmong the me I left in shamblesKeeping warm beneath aContinue reading “Tranquilized”

Seeming

Wrapped up in the intimation of a figure stoicWearing, even now, a garment partially heroicSpeaking words I never really understood completelyUttered as if confidential whispering discreetly Standing here as if it mattered to you in the merestModicum of meaning yet I held you, ever dearestBolstering the feeble feeling that if I could barterMore than whatContinue reading “Seeming”

Confession

I feel as though I calculateAnd never make a single calculationI measure out the permanence that wasn’t really permanentIn values organized in permutations I set a set of sliding scalesAgainst the metaphors of old deceptionI find in the dividing there are only larger dividendsTo quantify the meaning of exception I feel like I’m conspiringBut neverContinue reading “Confession”

The Pegasus Fiasco

So, I finally got around to releasing a book of poetry. I mean, I got it sorted out back in February but I’m not exactly loud about these kind of things. It’s called “The Pegasus Fiasco” You can click on the picture of the book to get to the purchase link or just click HEREContinue reading “The Pegasus Fiasco”

Leads

Perhaps we never partedNever did, because we never really couldDivide the imperfectionsFrom the infinite reflectionsThat we never really startedTo perceive the way we said we always would So now we hold departureLike an ornament that waits to meet a treeIn days of burning summerWhere remembrance merely slumbersAnd the stars are set as archersAnd the pinesContinue reading “Leads”

Dismissed

Diluting my spirit with spirits dilutedI wonder, how much of me’s left?When words elocuted are barely a memoryBorne of the wreckage that left me bereft With wandering syllables slowly salutingA banner I made out of dreadAnd wearing a uniform made of out of treacheryLeaking affinity, just to pretend that I bled Dissolving the meaning withContinue reading “Dismissed”

Proceed

Would petulance remove you if I speakThe words as if they were as strong as I am weak?And set upon my heart, as if a laminate,An armor that would minimize the burden of critique? By statement like a hammer yet to strikeDo I concede that we are nothing but alike?Or bind, to the contrary, allContinue reading “Proceed”

Unfurling

Could I become the reason whyThere’s something more to wake and choose to findWith fingers curling slowly on a blade that none could pry…are reasons really good enough to sever or to justify the bind? I wonder, all the same,If it was shame or just a nameOr just an answer that I neededSo that somethingContinue reading “Unfurling”

Turbulence

The pin droppedAnd then stoppedCircles made of sound were flattened lowJoining “can’t” to words of “have to know” And sound roseAround thoseTravesties of tenuous regardTurning tender tenebrous and charred The chime bringsDivine wingsChapters set in books not fully pennedMerging “I mistook” with “duly tend” But set lowWas threat, soTapestries of every spurned offenseCarried far awayContinue reading “Turbulence”
