the coming of perfect


Pierre Adolphe Valette

this secret'll keep
like warm biscuits
squirreled away 
in a blue smocked tin
a wee small crack 
in the pantry window
let winter sunbeams 
through a keyhole
grin

rapture


photo by Francesca Woodman


how divine the child
gone wild
fresh tart
confection 
sweet hot
jelly roll giggle & 
blues storm chaser
done spun herself plum dizzy 
now everybody in the spool

no spoilers


it's
high time
soon

you'll find out
& peep my soul
through a glory hole

i've called on the full moon
to rattle up
my bones

these days &
breaths counted on
beads of sweat

don't tell 
how deep the scar
i beg

don't ask why
it just is
the end

travel advisory



chart a course
as the hummingbird flies
fold up my heart
like a stolen map

impact



and now

i was a part of it,
 alright

my custom fit cradle
indented formidably
into
 earth from sky
a few looked down
(three to be exact)
with
 a blend of love,hate
 
and who gives 
a damn
upon
 a pillar

yet i was theirs
creation’s foundling

loop

eye
pressed against
the glass of
fallen memory 
still i cry
had i known then?
yes
still i'd ride

laundry

          Still Life-John Frederick Peto 


well
that's my life
hung up
high
on a hook
watch it dry
while i 
go
for a smoke
