Delphic Pinions

  I fancy that little dragonfly in the sky   So gratuitous is the little dragonfly that I gained resentment towards those wings

Enigma

      I’ll never forget the day I saw those brown eyes staring at me with as much longing as I was filled with   Filled with the amity the burnished satisfaction   I wanted to give in to you   I remember every ripple of your skin under my touch how your breath…

Palaver Sermons

    It couldn’t have been long   Maybe six months Eighty-seven thousand and sixty hours   Perhaps it was decades, darling   Everyday in your presence multiplied into eons Every moment aligned perfectly   So perfectly   I’m sure we were together in every single dimension every parallel universe constellation   The galaxy shifted…

Nocturnes

      Oh, darling I tried   How I tried   To spit out old keys The broken chords that lodged my throat   It was as if those strings had lies of their own   They’d invade my dreams   Wispy extremities gelid Steinways   When you touched those chords it was sharper than…

Velvet Threads

      With your hair pushed back black as the raven’s claw Intelligent eyes laughing   You had an air of innocence around you   Purity   Richness   Like the scent of a garden freshly bloomed with white roses   But those same roses had thorns that could prick and pierce right through…

Whimsical Dreams

    I had a dream once.   One that consisted of butterflies swarming around a chain of daisies. There were lilacs and daffodils blooming high in a field that danced with the summer wind. Their petals laughed at the sun, seeming to cry out for its warmth, for their growth.   It was a…

Paper Ideations

      Pencil shavings the color of ash found in that overflowing trash   It holds old names and unwanted toiletries things that were never really needed   Easily forgotten   In that office where things shouldn’t be abandoned   There’s something refreshing haven’t you noticed about remembering the forgotten   Those things you…

Between the Constellations

      There is a world inside of your eyes   Speckles of Orion and thunderstorms Andromeda and passion   Wet hot desire burnished deeply into those amber irises   You gaze at me with a devotion so pure smeared white and gold As if I am your providence   like you are the…

Human Shaped Rose

    It was like rose petals   The inner thin layer of her heart shaped like a pretty corolla   She was delicate   Water slipping off of her husks to gather at the roots   Yet she would never grow   Those petals turned translucent   Combining with those rays she would try…

Obsolete

      I find myself crying constantly ever since you left   Maybe it’s the jealousy now that you are free and I am still trapped

la vague à l’âme

      I have 5 bottles lining the walls of my heart   Their names are mixtures of contronyms dredges of adulation, malice just a sliver of delirium   I’d like to boast that they’re all for decoration - just like my half witted remarks my freckles that connect like those constellations you so…
