FILAMENT & FRAGMENT #7: Rain

seeps into
the dream, all
the pebbles
wet

for this
for that
she wept
or didn't





FACT MASQERADING AS POEM # 311

an open hand
holds
30% more
stories





HOW MANY REFLECTIONS ARE YOU RESPONSIBLE FOR?

each turn
glint of sun    facet glass    wrinkled cellophane

landscape of shell    tentacle    texture
connects language    forestalls precipice

well, almost

how much life in that ¾ burned candle

how many shadows fit the sleeve of your arm





EXCUSE THE INTRUSION

at every angle a stranger
observes    a piece of you
smile    hair    wrist    breast    calf

parts echo whole
pull together fragments
into promise

thus wanting
is named

in tonight’s stew
of language    voice is story    invitation
spill of moon/first kiss    desire’s thumbprint

Stranger, I anticipate how magnificent
& fragrant    the meal with you
