watershed



having you
beside
me
carves a river through
my catastrophe

inside the
things i left unsaid
you would never see me again

landmark

shouted down
alleyways 
your name
banks
breathlessly
off gnawed brick
memorials

a rising 
low note prayer
of good intention

a dub-stepped

hymn
 
in extraordinary

time

treasure



do i
spark joy?
or am i a coin
tossed in a birds nest
needful

I am
the final victor
your ash
soaked
in the skin
of my boots

dark ride

your breath
bated

toothsome

a rainbow chorus
of seventy six
velvet draped

anvils
dropped gently
swiftly 
on itsy bitsy toes

you caught
the stars left handed
tossed 'em back
eyes twinkling
before the sun realized
they were gone

blowing
out your fingers
like candles & cracking jokes
(so i wouldn't worry)
you couldn't hide
what you were

girl
she said
it's time
you oughta go

dig
a hole
& unscrew
the anchor

check
yourself
out & pay
what you owe

give 
up the
landline
all of your keys

whittle
life 
down
from one hundred

to free
