a poem

this is a poem
about a poem
about a thought

about the sun and the moon
and the typical allegory

about the face of surfaces
polished to a shine

this is a poem
about nothing

because
what i feel today
cannot be abstracted

this is a poem
about the nothing that is everything

Untitled

In infancy
is where our amorphous world starts

I am here
with you in ambiguous space

No map or landmark
to mark the journey we take

Only our heartbeats
to tell as sonar waves

Locate me
in you
you in me

I am not lost
until I lose you

I am found
when I find you

Your light is
life in darkness

So stay because
your imprints are in me

And I want
to nestle in you

to cradle home
we hold within

you, my heart
you, my breath
with you, our birth

cold

this world is cold
removed from the warm
touch of another human

separate and distinct
as if that is what will
make one a radiating star

the sun a star
derives energy from fusion
in merging of two nuclei

this heart is cold in decay
this life seeks warmth in connection

this body wants to burn
with fever of life

sunset-rise

with you
sunset
sunrise

warmth of a dawning
cooling of a release

strata of hues
blend of tones

earth meets celestial

our union
of body and spirit

in situ

i sit
in situ
with u

side
by
side

riverbed
rocks

in
brooks

let silt
slide
over with

flow
of
flood

submerged
and
embedded

we sit
side-by-side
in situ

Amoeba

this amoeba
is a leukocyte
it protects

this amoeba
multiplies
in anticipation
of offspring

born from
the bone
made strong
and

formless but
not boundless

i am this amoeba

Insatiable

love
you are insatiable

you are

in flight
in metamorphosis
in starvation

insistently

you feed
you bleed
so you can breed

procreate

versions of yourself
time after time
proliferate

to give away

nothing remains for you
except places imprinted
on your heart

except bite marks
of those who
latch on you

nothing remains
so you thirst

you are insatiable
love
