faulty bridge

we ask the night

for advice

on how to love

her

we fashion a net of fears

cast them deep into

the dawn to soak up

every single dew

drop

we wear the mantle of this

weight

on our shoulders

for years

until we have the

hardest stones

to offer

the

moon

into dawn

30 May

in another life

i ask you if you serve

a god

if you are already

a god

and you laugh

maybe for the first

time

i wonder if i

am serving you

ornately enough

as my hands always do

ache to catch all of

the gossamer parts

of your perfect

peals of

joy

fire brand

26 May

we shake our fists

rattle important

planets in our

haste we

change ecosystems

with our thoughts

we can’t stop betting

no we can’t stop running

no we can’t stop praying

for peace from the

shadows we made in

first grade slipped on

with excitement

looked around the world that

darkness made

swallowed hard

dove down into this particular

room in the clouds for

grief

birds

prism again

23 May

it began as a

sigh

or the intake of

breath

before the sigh

the everything fighting

to be heard

nothing listening

kind of breath

the one that pulled you

in on a day you weren’t

looking and proceeded to

sew beads to your

shadow when you

were in battle with

the night

the breath made of

ragged jagged teeth

pushing out fine lips

the sigh that

stood at your door

head against

wood

never

knocking
