portal & precipice


The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

cosmic words



Words are like days:
coloring books or pickpockets,
signposts or scratching posts,
fakirs over hot coals.

Certain words must be earned
just as emotions are suffered
before they can be uttered
– clean as a kept promise. 

Words as witnesses
testifying their truths
squalid or rarefied
inevitable, irrefutable.

But, words must not carry
more than they can
it’s not good for their backs
or their reputations.

For, whether they dance alone
or with an invisible partner,
every word is a cosmos
dissolving the inarticulate

gave birth to thunder

She gave him a smile and in turn
he crafted a planet out of her.

He piled her fears deep under ground,
and covered them with soil
so dreams, like flowers, would bud.

From her tears he created the oceans,
waves of sorrow and joy.

Her sighs turned into wind,
and her screams,
of passion and anger
gave birth to the thunder.

She was the Earth,
and in turn he perished
and became the moon.

Forever cursed
to orbit around her.

The Earth was once a girl
