ROOTS & NERVES

roots and nerves
move dirt
boots and struts
make us
a brilliant nightmare
of sherbet lip-tasting
tears of a broken one
who knows any ‘thing’
but that ‘thing’ we find
killing us all slowly.

SWAN UPON THE POND

THAT broken hearts
wear a s oul,
and faith like
long-necked geese
i wished to be
the swan upon
your pond

where solemn eyes
speak no word
and life-like
silverKey unlocks
my mind

—it’s a spilled moonbean —
upon a silver lake
and my webbed feet
of that floating mouth
gliding silently
upon my life
