And for your listening pleasure, while you gaze at the picture:

POEM: Feels Real

You think you know what’s real?
That’s so adorable.
You’re adrift in a space
full of false, hard edges.

Some say it’s turtles all
the way to the bottom.
Whatever a “bottom”
is or was or may be.

You are in the third act
of a two-act play, and
everyone has gone home.
If you fall to the stage
no one will hear or feel
the waves emanating
from that false, hardwood floor.
But I understand it
feels real to you.

POEM: Gravel Road

the washboard road
sends vehicles
into
convulsive spasms–
violent shudders
that pop the wind from passengers
&
clack teeth
&
postpone words
because all utterances become
machine-gun moans

a dust plume of raw umber
slants away from rolling tires
seen across field and savannah
smoke signal of impending visitation

POEM: Winter Haiku





barren branches
rake the sky above
tines chaotic



crow turns head
aiming its lustrous eye
pausing mid-meal



snowy silence
ends in flapping wings
then returns



cornstalk stubble
dusted in dry snow
desiccated



breath tendrils
roil into limbo
forgotten
