‘Nother Dumb Corona poem

Humans evergreen and hibernating  Enclammed in concave spinal cords, eating Hunched over hot-white blasting computer screens  Mirrored like iridescent, plastic beetle wings ❧ These bug shells lined up, dried out on the window sill The common house spider, butterfly, silverfish Clawed up in static pose and pawed at by kittens  Leg raised muscles cry atrophy— […]

In the garden  There’s forever clover  The hutch is still  No sawdust raining  An empty house  No kicking, thudding  No bundling of bedding  No sneeze- or chew of weeds An empty house   With the door open ❧ Cloaked starlings sail  In the black bloated sky Him palming tarot cards  His false face armed  As crooked […]

Guts

Stages of grief poems

For you, wherever you are  I hoped you weren’t afraid  When you were cast out into unconsciousness  Like a satellite knocked off its course (We all have to be eventually) ❧ I hope gravity pulled you to a gilded gate I hope that you weren’t as afraid  As I am when I catch myself waning […]

It is what it is. So say it without hesitation.
