The Poetress
For Devlin De La Chapa
She appeared whole,
with the scent of her ink,
with her magical words
that shake reality,
with her magical words
that cure aches.
When she dipped her plume
in the inkwell,
white papers just dance
welcoming roses so pink,
& her blood oozes out
of her words
that smash the world.
She appeared whole,
with silk in her tongue,
with her words that glide
smoother than smoothness.
She appeared whole,
She appeared whole,
She appeared herself, just herself.
A Sonnet for a Clothesline
Beautiful sparrows/
Beautiful
                       flutter
ing.
A Bra(in)   on a clothesline.
                             Wings
flutter.
                            The (bra)in
is still
                                [hanged]
on a clothesline.
Sparrows fly away,
& the brain is still
charmed by the clothesline.
