    • Poem for house

    • Artistic collaboration
    • I. In the shadow of blown basement bulbs, in yellowed newspaper, stiff spruce, tennis ball through chipped window, sodden flagstone, upturned roots. In stale icicles, in rattling attic fan, redirected creek and undisturbed pond, rotting leaves and...
    • Echo

    • Artistic collaboration
    • I follow the echo of a drum into the room you won with your presence to find a statue of your likeness and her though it is you who is emitting the steady thump, thump soundless but felt in the beat of my heart. She demands I sign the pact with my...
    • Small things

    • Artistic collaboration
    • Drop Saturn in water, it floats, one citrine Fruit Loop in a bowl of milk, gently spinning. Earth’s sky cracks open like a geode where (they say) the deep blizzard of light has raged fifteen billion years. They say, sunspots created Stradivari,...
    • Ocean Park #131 revisited

    • Artistic collaboration
    • As his life sectioned, Into the place he positioned to be. The creases formed a deformed portrait. He was a sketch, a sketch without a defined line or purpose. An undecipherable message, smudged into rigid translation. And then the critics,...
    • Worth

    • Artistic collaboration
    • Convenience does not leave much room for care. Things of furry can never last too long. Our moment passes in an awkward stare. Some may claim that they were just unaware, But they know this is outrageously wrong. Convenience does not leave much...
    • Hummingbirds

    • Artistic collaboration
    • I stand here searching, peering, waiting A dense for envelops, enshrouds my being I sense freedom Like the glare of a jealous onlooker Here I stand, a bystander to my own life Nothings grows here IN this dark, dismal abyss Welcoming non but the...
    • Mainstay

    • Artistic collaboration
    • Not since our priorities have rifted And my sensibilities lifted Has my scope been shifted aloft With a subtle and somber glare I turn eyes toward vacant air And disassemble the ramparts Which seek to ‘suade my stare For my experience is small...
    • Bare

    • Artistic collaboration
    • Since our discourse I have chased you A white stag shining bright Juxtaposed against these greyscale, Translucent, permeable, play curtain walls Come sit on my shelf You polished, porcelain China doll In fear and love and foreboding I have studied...
    • To dream is to forget...

    • Artistic collaboration
    • To be myself I must be unclean. A single note that exploding creeps in on the silence. Believe in my heart that is all that is left. Its nothing but flesh and blood. My body is the masterpiece. A mirror of sorts. A putrid design. Individuality is a...
    • Oh' the scientist

    • Artistic collaboration
    • The scientist couldn’t possibly know my thoughts, how impure they are. To take my skin and draft it again, I’m sure this experiment didn’t match your predictions. Who could perceive a heart perpetually buried in blasphemy. My sanguine will...
    • To speak of dahlias

    • Artistic collaboration
    • And at the end there were dahlias covered over with boards, one window choked with light. And at the end I'm alone in this room of my body wanting to be born. The floor, mishandles by weather, is dusk prying dirt from stone - my back, shoulders,...
    • 8-16-09

    • Artistic collaboration
    • i stand stranded in this stagnant water time found out there is wait-less-ness grounded near here the branch follows flow to fold with the wind is hollow an emptiness building bridges runs high the cost of falling seems to be failing landing here...
