Year End

 

Not nerve ends

but synapses.

Not pain passed

from the periphery

to the center but a

juncture. Busy body

neurons in ant hills.

Pathways made

rich with wandering.

Such wingtips

as grow from the

rigging to fill

rib cages with

falling, with flight.


Of what remains

Sloughed-off  skin

bio-degradable

memory of intimacy


In Theory

Long to be lost in text so
dense as word made thicket
would make more sense.


Four and Twenty Poetry

The November issue of 4&20 is out, and  “Thresh-Hold” is in it.  Four and Twenty is a journal of short form poetry published by Vinnie Kinsella.


Figure of Speech

a caesura

so subtle

as would

be

invisible

but for

the felt

certainty

of distance.


Marx’s Table of Wood

meanderings of solid things,
such as in the unimaginable mind
of a wooden table, is deranged
dancing not tuned to the music of the
spheres.

if it could speak of it, he said,
it would say that a table is of no use
to itself; but its value, (oh its value) among
things is what riches are to people, only
richer.
