Sinew stretches and
stitches us all together— and —
is it true I and you and me can
never — she stands
at the door
eyes like iron
in failing light and
We can never —
nerves are snitches; why —
her choice in the pallid
light
a silhouette in the door —
this is not not this is not
thisisnot
this is not a cry for [help]

- ;compromise

Dullness is its own
reward
to curl and await for
the ache of sore vertebrae
to be smothered
until the pins and needles
of a bloodless arm
open eyes

- ::feel

Coarseness is its own
reward
the scrape against pallid
skin
wipe the sweat from - your brow
disease-disease-chews
draws blood to - the skin

Her finger — pressed to my
lips
and I found rest.

- Precipice
one foot above - the juncture
there - with the sweep
of wind
- a challenge to -
weary muscles - fair
do we place faith in
air -
or -
step back - feel
the rush of blood
through veins -
knowing wolves -
are there?

- Forest for Trees
Forgiveness is - another’s
crime, and that makes it -
ours too - yes me and
you - for where else does
forgiveness lie?

I one told a man - a valiant lie,
and to the beggar gifted
a silver - dime and I
am no more morally gray
than the next.

No - no
we live in a word where -
capital grows like leaves -
And act as if - all are not
Entitled - to such things.

- Warmth

Wasted by —
the fireside where—
amber liquid glitters
and decanters perch lazily
on the edge

waiting for
the gentle nudge
to crunch a moment’s
reprieve.

-Coincide

Hard it is to believe
a liar’s lark - with dust’d
age could so easily be made -
to reside between -
acceptance there
Can we hold one accountable -
for his age?
’ - or rejection
fair - ‘She speaks ill - of course - for fame

as if both
aren’t the same
venom’d decay

That was beautiful

Are you alright if I comment here?
Alone she drifts from ancient mists
Nary a candle, nary a wish
But in the wont of wandering paths
Through wooded knolls, and windworn crags
She seeks a face she thought as friend
But now -- she thinks as judgement's end

- Teetering

Have you - a dash of
courage burning in
your throat - looked over the
Edge. It’s in your toes - you know? - the press of your heels -
you feel?

How dare we - say
it will all be
Okay
while Erosion scratches away.
