The bodies have been thrown,

face down,

in the dusty, amber mud.

Their boneless chests

and  pale, pearl bellies

 hang

like dying vines

over silent hills–

with

arms outstretched

in praise of a master

both dead

and alive

in the heartless sky

Two of Us

in the african twilight

an abyssinian nightjar

came to me

mournful

and

broken

for he could not speak–

he stepped into my palm 

cautiously

so that I could hold

  his silent will

against my own–

and we were two

voiceless creatures

alone

together

When I walk with my sister,

her brassy nose pokes

at the jumbles of space

between today

and yesterday

where growth begins.

Her steady eyes

lurk

Behind violet skin

and sunburned chins

to stop my spirit from

reaching too high.

She

is the ‘Never’

that slaughtered my ‘Perhaps’.

Once,

I slipped my hand into the pocket of your winter coat

and found the stolen slivers

of a woman’s scowl.

I put back all

but

an eyebrow

that bends effortlessly into

ocean

and sky–

 it can be pinned on

in naked moments to

erase

all signs of me.

and

 Though it bites

with the dull pain of a rotting tooth,

I cannot bear to  live

 without it
