she lives on the edge of a black hole
where time is a frozen statuette
(the type handed down through generations
to which is said: "hey!
Time is stuck in a funny little pose.")

and with every rotation of the sun
her eyes will thaw, then her nose and then her face
(and with every rotation of the sun
i wash over the shores by her feet;
here she will caress me
and run me through her fingers.)

stumbling over words

Posted April 12th, 2012 at 11:14 AM by embers (words)

she says Imagine

that god is the field beneath us,
and the trees are his angels -

(i pray to them, you know,
wrap myself around the bark like vines,
each of my thousand fingers curls to catch each twig.
but on bad days i am poison ivy
and my fingernails are nettles,
my long torso is tied in knots and clumps
like my hung over hair.)

- or Suppose

that love is a recluse and a painter,

"My wife grew up in a mining family," he said this morning
after a sunrise's worth of silent thinking. "Solitary,
no hobbies: no dancing, no singing, no drawing - she drew
her bounds around herself

from the store room with the barred windows,
the wine cellar where nobody goes
to the terrace, dirty marble juxtaposed
with shiny gifts from the old widows

next door, all pristine."

his lips sink, seal again...

how "black panther" fans out
to hold 'jaguar', 'leopard', 'cougar'
in fivefold fingers

to juggle between words for effect of discord
as a poet would,
does, has done.

poets hold panthers in zoos,
stretch signs: "poetic panthers",
"panther poets", "psalms of pristine panther poetry"

a "panther" is thus
gooey cars, lard pelts

wordcave for keys

Posted January 21st, 2012 at 02:40 PM by embers (words)

a lunatic jumps a fence, leaves a trail of cloth
caught, punched through by a barbed wire fist
aimed at a '100% cotton' label

traces a wound in his leg, flicks the skin,
watches ripples trickle through his veins
like echoes to an eardrum

he reaches into his throat as if to grab for his lungs
- they haven't been touched for so, so long -
stirs the cobwebs of widowed spiders

sometimes i feel like my ears...
