VARESE’S DESERTS

I watched a tender
blue sky seep into
sleep and
experienced dark claws
of rough black earth
awaken me
And the moon itself
sucking bones and
dirt from Earth
into a funnel
toward Heaven
This I saw while
being born
This I know as
each small day
i die slowly //

BY NOON UNLIKE ME THE WORLD IS STRONG

Did you see? I dropped my phone
three times today

by noon

And it has yet to break but
I am trying but the devilish
device is strong!

unlike me

I dropped by three before sunrise
and four before I hit the door
that greeted me

the world is strong

but me; that broken heart!
And it does seem so adventurous —
the one accustom to guises and masks

so I fade I melt

And the sun laughs a million flames
that lick my burning skin
and I’m free to walk alone

away into oblivion
