Unshared Shard

The glass slipped; oddly
I hoped it would break.

The Weeping Chicana

Her tears
in moonlight

Mercury atop
cocoa velvet

Young sad girl on a train
she’s watching

Towns and worlds
go by

Speed her away

Through misted window
sun streaks

She shifts so her front’s
to the past

Her back yet
to the wall

She’s pulled now
no longer pushed

Sound upon motion
after all

she speeds her away

Chagall 2015

Once Removed


I’m not saying step away,
I’m saying step back a bit
and give us both room to breathe.

I felt
her kiss
even through
the bandage.
