- Return
Restoration is complication
better to move without hesitation
through the mire, and bloated
tress, the murk which speeps
into everything.

Repetition;

I can wish, that is —
To scream — of the vaulted
ceilings dabbed with —
vivid dreams.

Who am I to help —
But feel — were she here
(that is) green-eye’d with
curv’d lip — I would know
what it is I —

- When among mirrored hallways

Must he — Lynn —

(a man who never
questioned
or gave his mind)

Remember then —

(With glass of
chipp’d ice and
amber liquid)

her — name

(Madeline or Merrabell)

upon that — yellow’d sheet
with those — numbers —
he never tried

(nostalgia is another name
for that smokey voice
and haunting verse)

perhaps another — sip
and his — memories will —

- Squeeze
Skin beneath fingers — coolness
of flesh. Whispers in the dark —
a laugh in the stillness —
hair between finger — rolls like silk

and I —

- Lulliby for a Sigh

Wasting away —
in the light at
the end — of the — road should
I press on — or —

- yellow;Notepad

The clip of — teeth
reverberate in my sinuses
and escape to my inner ear
where you; (quite receptively) capture —
my distress.

Laughter can — chew the
air and I calm the disturbed
nerve with a — sip of
chilled water.

The silver gleam
of the polished edge —
fills the space behind
the eye — and divides
the space between —
two joints

She laughed; he laughed;
they laughed; neighbors laughed;
dogs laughed; condemned laughed;
table laughed; static laughed;

I chuckled.

One of these days I'm going to have to write my thoughts on all of these. You know I love your poetry.
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
