majesty



my heart

a foreign country
waiting

wild
for a sun

waiting 
for a nod

from
the beautiful one

to come

prodigy




tell-tale timber songs
escape
well pressed lips

you learned to play
the bridge by ear

for the morning crowd
& the church mice
scampering smugly

savouring crumbs
under your feet

damsel


she
pinned
namesakes
in her hair
beckoning summer
igniting blooms that lit her way

voyager



i recall the tug
the inescapable call
my legs
their journey

a paper crane 
tossed through glass 
brewing perfect storms
my soul did not flinch

tribal drums coax
wild flickers 
from a distance
it's a jungle in here

audio



stories
told in fractions
taken up
& wound around 
eager reels

life sounds 
captured mid air
taken in
& spun around
played by ear

St. Johnsbury

         image: Edward Hopper, 1922 

she poured 
the bone colored grit
into her coffee 
& watched as it turned
a lighter shade of resignation 

what is the matter?
his words hung 
mid-air 
blooming
an unavoidable cloud

take my hand, please
she exhaled
i just seem to be 
a bit stuck is all
and she left it at that

flightless

Chair With the Wings of a Vulture, 1960, Salvador Dali 


only when the
sun shines
do i remember
the taste of regret
