• Wrinkle in the Gameboard


    When will it be warm

    for the body of my bold,

    shadowing


    in the old basement

    where the spiders are inclined

    to suffer such a rarefied thing?

  • The Path

    The path

    of a bird

    is predetermined

    casually,

    as

    a peal

    from a sheltered

    bell

    on a hill.

    I don’t know why

    the lurching

    person

    by

    the door

    inside the southbound

    lightrail car

    nearing

    SoDo,

    hasn’t

    fallen

    completely.

    “One

    word

    from new

    and things

    would be different,”

    we

    have

    to restrain

    ourselves from

    spelling

    out.

  • Because of the Wee Crystal Ball

    Rainbow droplets

    appear and fade

    on the old wall,

    in a parade

    one soon forgets.

  • Recharging My Rune

    The baby spot

    in the middle

    of my old head,

    warms the riddle

    I’m playing at.

  • Forked

    It’s raining rust

    on the legend

    of your nearness,

    as the dredge breath

    contains nothing.

  • Irrelevance

    Irrelevance has a face

    that casts no shadow or light.

    It smiles an armory

    of never been quite.

  • Rest Stop Theology


    After the party,

    liminal was the only

    way to show


    solidarity

    with the semiotician

    barking from a shoal outside of mind.

  • How Many Pale

    How many pale

    letters

    does

    it

    take

    to change

    a lightbulb

    in the swoon

    of a carless

    sanctuary

    in

    a refugee

    cathedral?

    The prophet

    says

    we

    haven’t

    even begun

    to sing the myrrh

    of our promise.

    When the metaphysics

    of wing and whisper

    have been sanded

    down

    to a smooth

    ark,

    will

    we kneel

    inveterate?

  • Liminal Amazing

    In the twilight

    of believing

    in anything

    and everything,

    I’m losing sight.

  • The Eagle Listens

    My rescuer

    and my ruin,

    dying flower

    sighing power

    candescently.
