Give Or Take

From my vantage it is not clear
whether she grasps at a star
or offers a petal to heaven

Country Ditty Rewrite

All of my exes
are different

Hee Haw!

The tiniest of gnats
who have shown up
lately around my sink
have no capacity to warn
one another, so I kill them 
all in rapid succession

Black and White

It is said the sun
must be 
at your back
in order to see
a rainbow

arc all of the colors,
your neck's nape
is warmed, and 
your shadow is 
there before you

The Tome

She opened and closed 
her book of life,
each chapter a year,
each page a season,
each paragraph a month,
each sentence a day,
each letter an hour,
each space a moment,
the unwritten - all of her 
hopes and regrets,
tucked away till forever 
on a shelf

Whither burrows the worm?
