Secrets

The moon pulls us
more than you know,
tearing the sheets while you sleep,
unbuttoning
your night clothes,
spotlighting
tease of your body,
bringing the wolf out of me…

I pant and pace the room
with the moon wobbling in the sky,
pulling,
contorting
me
into something you mustn’t see.

 

Calling Me

Window
breeze seeping in
whispering
for me to return home

out of this
cold
loneliness
slow killing

will you take me
back
without remembering
all the wrong
I’ve done to you?

 

Looking Up with a Grin

She takes me
in the backyard
buries me
in the garden soil
face up
watering me
with her cool
squats of shade.

 

Visions

You settle me down…

Night shadows
across your body and face,
swimming in the air of my room,
wingless nude,
soft sorrow
I know
you’re not really here…

But I take you
always,
keeping me
alive in tomorrow’s glare.
