Thumb wars



let me be your stranger

it’s easier to defy expectations that don’t exist

be my other

new , exciting, unknown

steering our moment

disorienting direction

while I discover missing pieces

words before and after

written in the dictionary



like a boy’s eyelid or a sweatshirt

i’ve been trying to turn myself

inside out

neurons reaching for new connections

electric internal buzz could finally be

set free

words scrambled like a weekend omelet

feelings and emotions tripping over

my heart

racing to interact with everything

tangled, messy, and running amok

no shield 


Ash & Echo

sitting around tribal fire

words go up in smoke

ash & echo remain


discourse lies across

yellowing pages of time

silent rumble filling heads

pulling us towards the flame

pushing ideas deep into embers

as we bury the philosophers’ stone


grapes on vine grow heavy
while mustard seed entwines
soil shared in growth delight
wait to see the fruit they bear
a seasoned sun shines upon
as we reap and then we sow
next pour the wine of clarity
glass filled with all we know
spice is next to palate cleanse
bring attention to our tongue
speak of truths your honesty
when the day is no more sung
