Sufficiently Akin

Our temperaments
seek temperaments
sufficiently akin
to reassure

that what we
register as lure –
and others
see as sin –

is not the hell
that they
we’re in.

On Watch

Minds got out of hand today.
Consciousness proliferated in improbable array
across your laundry and your crotch.
Everything’s on watch.

Cold Today

Blanketing – insensate freeze –
an endlessly re-run reprise
of twenty-seven cold degrees –
something opens, something sees –

Pleasure in a Promenade

Take pleasure in a promenade.
Walk instead of fly.
Wear your wings as ornament.
Dazzle passersby.


Every Time You Look Around

Every time you look around
some new intruder’s there.
Both of you are naked --
can’t fake it when you’re bare.

that isn’t true.
Intruders lie like bandits
clothed or unclothed – so do you.
