the whip-poor-will

cries so

plaintively

lately

though i walk

the every path

to find her

though i stand barefoot

in warm grass with

my right hand

shielding my eyes

from summer sun

she has only

shown herself

in song

so i

sit on the

cold concrete

of my back

stoop

year after year

in rapt admiration

the two of us ever

strangers

and unwitting

companions

other lullabies

21 Jan

all the branches

bowed down

last night

come to greet

the things that

only night will have

all the would be

leaves pressed

their faces

against concrete

and desperation

the only sound was the

tinny plague of

machines

still

all the ghost

flowers

shook off their

winter husks and

whispered

tomorrow

tomorrow

tomorrow

we

bloom

no darlings

16 Jan

i knew i was

underwater

but i opened

my eyes anyway

let my stone body

sink into truth

watching the

slow world of

things that only

know cool

endless darkness

until the only thing

i could see was

firefly memory

i made friends

with the silence

beyond any

silence i

had previously

known

and when i

reached the bottom

i did not

flinch

fiddleheads of course

15 Jan

one winged

one winged

one

winged

girl

streaking across

the mountain peaks

a blur of

lava and

a mouthful of

black

cotton candy

smoke

one winged girl

become an arrow

sweet and true

piercing the

very

sky

bees buzzing

9 Jan

when you are down

i will carry you

in my teeth

let your seeds

drop along the

way springing

sweet grass in

our wake

yes i will put

you in the

river and

let the healing

waters

snatch you

away long

enough to

remember the sun

the forest floor

under your

feet

the campfire

vigils

our shadows long

against the vast desert

and

love

once you finally

wash ashore

you will grow

into

a great

oak

and there i

build my

altar
