figuring out figuring out


cutting my son’s fingernails waning moon

*

figuring out figuring out my son’s half-full mouth

*

the sound of
bicycle brakes
her bright pink jacket

*

cuckolded rainforest - finding the bylaws of a bathroom

christmas lights

christmas lights
a row of
winter roses

*

chopping gold beets
a memory of
summer sun

*

cold night
a streetlight reflects
on a for sale sign

*

stephen’s day
the homeless man
waits for new year

a laburnum after the blossom

spring rain
looking through
last month’s photos

*

overcast
black-headed gulls come into
summer plumage

*

my son’s tears
a laburnum after
the blossom

*

windfall apples
a mother walks
her child to school

syrup bees

winter shower a teapot clinks off of a vase

*

when the moon is just right a bee will, sometimes, climbs inside of a dead lion and make syrup

*

having never cleaned a veg peeler i clean the veg peeler

*

long night the sighing of a bus

custard ratio

custard ratio...
a bank opens next to
grandma’s shit

*

donkey rhythm
the hooting of pacifiers

*

melancholy
each stone
a new shadow

*

schizophrenic windows shining through four agents -
 this world begins and ends in the womb

*

a hat becomes a hat

waning moon
my son's
nappy

*

morning light
a hat becomes
a hat

*

the world tumbles out of her mouth: i’m pregnant

*

drums the sound of a duck eating its own liver

*

   Woman with hat. Roy Lichtenstein.

milk morality

war museum
a mole hill looks on
indifferently

*

milk morality
a ballerina becomes
a landscape

*

long night
a carpet beetle finds
the linoleum

*

the only cure for black heads is death - winter shower eddies

*
