needs a keeper:
something large and calm --
something to defuse the bomb.

Keats Was Right

However body may apply
to soul or soul apply to body –
we’re the proof they do.

Keats was right:
the beautiful is true.

The Objective Pronoun ‘Me’

Today your spirit was so fluid
had it been a river
you’d have sluiced with it into a sea
that would have conjugated

yet another sea and then another
sea to give you an unprecedented,
if much less distinct, experience
of the objective pronoun ‘me.’


God's Eye

I'm a stye
in God's eye.

Woman, Man

of too many planes
& lines & angles -
chaos till you
see it as a plan.
Woman, man.

Current State of You

Rumpled inexactitudes --
crumpled points-of-view:
Welcome to the current
state of you.


Here We All Are Anyway

Roots go deep,
they say,
and tangle into
strangling disarray
But here we all
are anyway.
