Black-eyed Buckled Breath

Sooner than
greenish-blue
bamboos your
moonlit eyes

pittance muffs
my mood adjunct—
a junkyard palette
cuff-skewed love.

Blanching Casual

O, wreck of feeling
icy setback, mystic hush—
swaddle mound of earth
to dotted craft and sour.

O, threadbare hope, dweller of
cashmere touch pixel crush
pink piñata— throw concern
without thinking of farewell.

First Impression: How to Blow It

cross
(copacetic) conduct— martini extra, curled drop of glass
exploding star even out— red wine, curb, orchestra
fire full a sturdy look—linger— brood—go in search of blue
& pop

The Overflow

Back when
curved earthen jars
were water holders
paddling through
pewter poor
doorways,
we watched
every breath
skip over
Venice
as if love
stayed.
