    day 251

    the fears of others
    drape me like chains;
    struggle to stand,
    hunch with the strain.
    the counsel i seek
    resides in me
    and the power above
    felt but unseen…
    so await for a sign
    my feet in the sand
    salt of the sea
    strength of the land.

    day 252

    wind breathes life into the trees
    animating them with the will to walk
    they perch as if taking a step
    while the atmosphere fills with warning
    an ominous quiet which hints
    at the impending uncertainty…

    day 250

    once again we brace for a storm
    mother nature’s rage supplants my own,
    diminished by her fury
    we bond in community,
    spiraling past all that held us down.

    Annex

    The sink in the room
    the bed
    the junk jewelry box
    pirates in my head
    back to back
    songs about Gina
    and blossoms
    words about lonely
    and never forgotten
    thoughtless
    ribbons of yellow
    I wished they
    had been red

    Upstairs

    The bath and the room
    were always filled with you
    brush in your hand
    smile on your face

    love was everywhere
    the door was even locked with it
    it all smelled of you
    and strawberry shampoo

    It was all you
    I witnessed it
    mother goddess
    from my corner the water
    next to your shell

    Sweet

    The smell of morning
    fumbles with the buttons of my shirt
    while reciting a French recipe in my ear
    my toothbrush dangles
    as my eyes roll back
    wanting to be alone
    the moment of seduction
    was short
    pleasantly sweet

    On a Field

    Skinny legs carry him through tidal pools of poppies and cornflowers
    into the surf of wheat
    where green crashes among brown
    and flowers wait on the shore
    mothers beautiful in their worry
    once it was an ocean, his father told him
    it still was he thought
    as he caught sight of a beetle swimming under the waves
    green, green as the sky should be in a storm
    a storm is what he wanted
    then when the sun rose
    he would look for shells
    shells from both oceans

    Official Free Pass Good on All Lines of the A.H.H. & W.W.A.

    A free railroad pass? See Traveler's Free Pass for more information.

    Traveler's Free Pass—Start Waggling the Magic Thumb!

    The printing on the outside of this card claims that it's an Official Free Pass Good on All Lines of the A.H.H. & W.W.A., which makes it sound like it's a free railroad pass.

    When the card is opened, however, a specially constructed "magic thumb" pops up above the edge, revealing that the "A.H.H. & W.W.A." isn't actually a railway line. Instead, the initials stand for the "American Hitch-Hiker and Weary-Walker Association."

    To use the "free pass," of course, you have to "start waggling the magic thumb" on your own hand in order to hitch a ride from a passing motorist.

    Traveler's Free Pass

    Issued by authority of the American Hitch-Hiker and Weary-Walker Association.

    Fellow travelers! What a pass!
    No tickets to buy, no tires, no gas!
    Whenever you want to go or come--
    Just start waggling the magic thumb!

    day 245

    mottled by scars
    my leg has suffered
    as a doctors’ pin cushion,
    poked and probed
    for medical curiosity.
    now my skin stings
    from the needles’ bite,
    piercing my flesh
    with a trail of color,
    enveloping the trauma
    in new growth,
    rewriting my history
    in a hopeful vein.

    Tension a Collection of Poems

    Seasonal
    the garden is filled with summer
    her waist, her arms
    her damnable charms
    as she lazily warms herself
    in her sun

    Afternoon
    these gold bands
    tight against my throat
    where my heart is
    suffocate
    pressure
    press

    Abandon

    Sped up
    smoother
    less dull more razor
    savor
    almost flight
    abandon is love’s labor
    baptized in the Styx

    Window

    I want to come home
    climb inside the tree house
    call the black dot on the white background art
    and just be in love with view

    Youth

    Checkout counter
    Perfume on blond
    A rush of blush to the head
    Signals sixteen
    Wires cross
    Come undone
    Speak to the flame

    Go with it

    She waited in line
    her cardboard arms
    strain under the weight of her belonging
    she wanted nothing
    from the man
    glass box man
    movie man

    Storm

    We dance
    open palms raised
    shield us
    from sun
    we are porcelain
    we move pale
    a winters snow
    in the ballroom

    White

    An oil based
    Flower blooms
    Static styrofoam
    Squeek
    The petals ache
    For nothing

    Surface

    the cords
    paper stars
    what nots
    and whatevers
    all flat
    reduced
    liberated from dimension number three

    Grass

    Flirt
    Green mascara
    Lash lawn
    And dasies
    Long flutter
    Butter
    Cup

    day 248

    trampled flat
    i press into the earth,
    breathe in
    the cool damp soil,
    worms wiggle,
    seed sprout through.
    remain to rest
    heart beats with the tide
    fingers touch
    feathery tendrils
    sinking deep
    i await my turn
    to sprout.

    day 246

    many chambered heart
    overflows with joy,
    ebbs with disappointment,
    rhythmically keeping time
    faithfully.
    sudden throb of love
    still eludes me,
    teasing with its flush,
    like a fox that scopes
    a hen house, only
    soon to scurry off
    for fear of discovery.
