end of a vacation,
driving back to
real life certain
reality visits its
self the night before
in sleepless
murmurs denying
dreams of sheep

got home to no internet
it’s crazy I bet
fried the line
it’s the best thing yet
I won’t have amazon
I can’t go in debt
still kind of stinks.

got the internet back by crawling
on all fours under floors
pulling wire past tired
dirty, scratched worn
but online newly born

She teases me with hot links
I caress her with random quotes
she’s busy fishing, I just want to
kiss her imaginary face, the profile
picture is a lie ripped from some
unexacting social media platform
the deception plain but tempting
as the strings of messages come
to me on my phone via Facebook
or Imgur or google hangouts or
skype. each , a break in
tension, the lure for the lonely
lost man sitting at his computer
late at night avoiding his empty
bed, hoping against hope that one
mirage will materialize into the
pink lace wrapped present that
he imagines the next one to be.
Knowing that at some point she
will realize that he’s not biting and
then she will move on to the next
John or Mark and cast her click
bait out to him leaving the lonely
man to the empty screens hibernating
in the night.

Subtle Winds Gone

Softly the light fades, splintered between the canopies
and the shades. Dreams creep out to take flight
buoyant on the evening breeze, imagination on wing,
whispers of light. her breath is mist, arms embrace
the softness of her breast, the rhythmic sweet sadness,
motion the rise and fall of her chest.
Poetically lost in verse departed,
the lines terse, the metaphor restarted.

paint like blood splatters across

a Brush rams its way through,
punishing the beauty within.
There are terrible feelings
I scrape out of the text,
my art, a knife, threat of
the violence that comes next.
Tear the colors that collide
with black acrylic,
deny mercy, laugh in the maw
of madness, macabre wit
drawn lines so thick,
this is the life death Sketch
this is the grave subject I
fetch.
the insanity that bleeds red

represents the darker side of

the covey almost hidden where I cradled the

Snow on the ground, the white sky

a radiant heater near my chair.
My first love clutched in my weakened
arms, the pages turned, the ink smudged
the small electric warm.
Sister’s hands warm on my cheek, the
touch removing the need to speak,
the stories, the moments
together stretch, hiding our love
away in this niche.
