in the greys of winter
through the clouds of stone
a mass of winged
in common sense
heads south
only one chap
takes a mid-air turn
makes a dive or two
and planes the other way

blind date

when doors slide shut
find me

through dimming light
sight me

though scissored nerves
sense me

while shutting down
scan me

and see

no matter
how close the shot

i miss you

the bridge

if you never saw me again

would you remember my voice
could you retrace the joy
and the sky we starred with trust?

if you never saw me again

would you still hear the singing
could you still picture my leaning
over dreams that did you bad?

if i simply never came
if you never heard your name
from my mouth and eyes and arms

how long would it take till the bridge disappeared?

grin house effect

the rain you yell on me

is not the thunderstorm you paint

on your canvas, with your greys

at my window

in my face

soothing shower cleansing crystals feeding flowers

i recycle

the flames you throw my way

don't trespass their glowing ra(n)ge

burn no clothing, eat no fields

breed no ashes

leave no trace

healing warmth tanning wave cooking fire

i regrade

the tornados you breathe out

whistling all the shades of hate

move a leaf not, barely stir

scatter nothing

roar in vain

replenished lungs refreshing gush cool embrace

i repace

all in place

in your face

midwinter bathtub philosophy

if you are what you eat

why can't i turn delicious
from glazed donuts?

and through the heft of your wings                                         weightless
                                                                      you flap

1 word to get it right

4 days with a brand new start

100 kisses you'll never taste

20-something and off goes my faith

1 second to get it wrong

3 ways to undig the hole

1000 nights when you weren't there

8 bites on the one who cared

1 thought for a different role

1 look to caress the soul

1 move and it is my turn

1 card and it'll be fun


the thing is

i don't do math

snow your warmth on me

and melt down my black
