trip’s end  

a glowing farmhouse                                      

niched in the milky way

each nail       

grieves in its own voice                                    

leaving the wood

hammer duet

echoes off                                                          

the darkening woods

gracefully

haphazard

butterflight

album photo

on three faces                                                     

the same nose

gone the summer dream

erased by rain                                                      

through the windowscreen

ancient headstones

the names and numbers                                      

worn to mutters

tag end of a summer

pulling weeds

barefoot in the rain

cloud glutton

you swallow a mountain                                       

then fall asleep

a swaying branch

is all we know about                                              

the unseen bird

while we dreamed

a lily bloomed                                                          

in the gift bouquet

a severed dream

lingers into my workday                                           

listless mistakes

arrival gate

all those who aren’t her                                            

come out first

two boys

one butterfly net                                                        

no butterflies

 

 

Cloud Eats Mountain, Red Moon Press, 2013

 

uncut grass

bent low by dewdrops                                                

the burdens of love
