Introspection

intense heat brands
our rapid introspection
stinging trees with affirmation
by the frozen water and
my head across your knees.

Flightless Force

Michelle Franklin inspired me to write an ode to board games.

Flightless Force

the flightless force of dice
dissolving into avenues
between wrenched ankles
seems worth a broken heart.

Radiance

I haven’t written very many love poems lately. I used to write a fair amount, but for whatever reason I stopped. Tonight, I thought I’d give them another try.

****

the scent of linen
and a confidante are
cures for superannuated
hearts – and she is more
than radiant.
