That Orange Thing

The Ouvre

The Oeuvre God’s Oeuvre I see it about you The crisscross of your bright and dark tones the lines pulled taught at the nape and sure strong bones tenderly covered thinly protected by the stretch of dermis Your natural jacket The husk that fosters you Your defense, your insulation Showing, Crowning The paintings of the…

The Woodpecker

kok, kok, kok We heard him every night when we tried to act like we were sleeping Eyelids squeezed tightly shut bed sheets soaking the sweat that poured from us labored breathing and swallowed spittle kok, kok, kok Why did we hear him only when we went to bed when our parent’s raised voices had…

I Give To You

I give to you My largest duvet so you can hide under and busy yourself in the bed of my thoughts, be pillowed by my over-protectiveness, entangled in the warmth of my angst I give to you my scissors To trim, and cut yourself down, shorter, way shorter than the largess that has been bestowed…
