Goodbye Cruel Island

The kiss of the fire ant
all the water in the sea
the mood dangerous
failures too many to count

Layer

It didn't stay within the confines of the park
the fence the road the trees the ground.
They wanted to stick their feet into it
just a little bit.  The lava was a tough animal
sensing danger in the name
of more information
continuing to tuck into itself
strangely opening
rumbling another day began
ended torn-up breathing piles of burning tires
and then not torn up--detouring the main road--
anything was the present time.  No matter
how pitiful no matter how active.

Thinking Makes It So

Thought about it and thought about it
checking out various meanings
some parts will be pulled away by the process
other parts will be left Sunflower beautiful
details slipping away the path tall grass
so what if there's the immediate shove
isn't something always on the horizon?

Words Wept Not Spoken

When she remembers she remembers this way:

lack of understanding overwhelming past present
future tense in all forms of he she we they I you

little boat of electric tears
held so tightly so long afloat
food water shelter we others

Calibri Lurking Light

Nothing nowhere endless
onyx sweating Emperor
Empress ding dong
tracings left by Times
New Roman Courier

Calibri hummingbird
poems archiving
heart's linoleum cuts
that's the plan spilling

Fire Eaters


Under the same uncaring sky
clouds build eating shade
stripes feathery beneath palms
heat dropping huddling hoarding
last moments of dead beauty
We continue to elbow aside

untamed chewing sipping hell
while in heaven symptom-free
