three songs

24 Jul

everything is

quiet as i

pull the stars down from

night and fold them

gently one by

one

the lazy breeze

yawns against my

neck while i

use my hair to

dust the sky

i pull down cobwebs

of pouty clouds

spread them on

the earth to

be nectar for

things that

crawl

i call to

others with

fire fingers and

we hold our hands up

bent back so far our

hair makes love to the

tree roots we open

so wide together that we

summon the

very

sun

three crows later

16 Jul

i pulled out

the box of

heartache

and oh how they

palpitated to

be chosen so

many to

admire

each one a different

shape-color-pattern

each one pierced with

hooks i

try heartache on like

earrings

let it dangle and

brush my shoulders

from the sheer

weight

i place heartache in

my hair and heartache

becomes bees

for a

moment

a moment

another

moment and

i eat honey for breakfast

on toast

then neatly put

heartache

away in

my

ribcage

again

between us

8 Jul

i had a dream

of the wolf again

shapeshifter

hearth keeper

heart

healer

long way traveler

den builder

hollow howl

like the sound of

the loneliest

truest train

long and scraggly

from a winter of

rare feedings

long treacherous

hunting

always in a new

territory

with ghost scents

making a good wolf

mad

i dream of the

wolf

at my hip

by the fire

growing fatter

hand fed

all the best

choices

slaked in

intention

brushed with

my own fingers

at night

where there

hangs an opal

on black

velvet
