IF

‘IF’ — the word of choice
for ‘Us” to be the most
separated by option…

An illusion for confusion
Remove the mind —
and receive the soul

How many lovers stumble
broken syntax in motion
a bruise makes the heart humble
:::::


A TIDE

A TIDE of
unceasing fear
like falcon-clutched throat
belies my appearance in light

On the surface —
no ripple
beneath the veil
a crashing winter ocean

To be…
one wave short
of a shipwreck
— without rescue boat

Abandon deck
all below
we sink
with mast and sail

Who cries
for the lost
at sea — the gulls shriek
beneath the tides —
the souls
:::::


THIS THEY DO

[In regards to fragments of poetry]
THIS they do —
organize chaos
in loving fashion
written in soul’s ink
with the deepest passion
