robins gathering

mother robin feeds her baby at window’s edge,
such new reflection of life passing through.

untitled 59

Skyscrapers and spires in the cool of night,
downtown & away, in the darkened light.
And we do what it is to make such sight burn,
we open eyes on what makes the soul yearn.

drive to breakfast and sunday reflection

Time, our squashes
turned to ornaments

and our hunger
turned to black holes;

it was just enough
to clearly notice

vehicles taking rain,
Hennepin to home.

completely taken

i take a breath
i drive to work
i rub my feet
i watch the sun
i drink a coffee
i drink a beer
i am in the woods
i am in the city
i have a life
i have a death
i press repeat
i tune a dial
moments between
moments between
i steal a look
i just can’t see
i take for you
i take for me,
& another breath.
& then i am had,
no time to fret
completely taken.

Naked between clothes…

As you do,
you’ll figure it out.

As you do.

we love

we love between
the facial hair stabbings
and stolen cane plants.

we love between
the outside world separatists
yelling “unity”

and the inside agitator’s ignorance.
we love between
a wide geography traveled distance

and unremarkable ones we are shut in.
we love between
dry hands and stained duvets,

purity years ago, and the
light of a Christian morning
staring back at you from a pulpit.

we love like that,
no between, unequivocally–alive:
kiss, trust, and a made breakfast.

we love.

alternatives

Some times
the world
will let you down

just to see
if you
can get back
up.

Sight Seen

Certain spectacles are just too beautiful to capture;
You’d have to of been there to see how free they were.

growing old

i would open yawn
but i am too tired,
i would full stretch
but i can’t move;
this cold morning
on this stiff floor
has me wondering
reaching, searching–
an aging body,
stuck in this time,
wholly consumed.

imagine expression

that world you’d dreamed
that thought you’d heard
had only happened for you
as if it had not occurred
