A Chorus Line

I find my rightful place on the pin, thanks to the grace
of a million dancing angels

Whose Woods Are These?

Droplets
crystalline
tone

so quiet here

snow underfoot
crunch stones
of ice

quite pious here

light
astigmatic
stars

halos awash
in twilight

breathless, yet see
how my breath escapes me

I am frozen regaled
in powder-blue night

To The Victor

chagall backdrop

Angels topple from the heads of pins,
who knew there’d be so many?

I fail to feel triumphant
amid such sad hurrah.

Their anguished song as one rues the lesser vantage;
while I’d rather reign than occupy, pray than hope, I choose instead
to fly away and alight atop an ancient arch, not very far from the fall.

Haiku For Earth’s Sorrow

I carry the dead
hushed voices on my shoulder
heaven cries, we weep
