The Stray Dog

  The dog you rescued with a scar on her brow  wags her tail and looks up at you, dark eyes shining mouth curved in a little smile.   But that lonely road where you found her limping stays branded on her heart.   In a tough moment, as she huddles in the corner wrapped in […]

The Eternally Bright Day

That hurt that stops you like a bear trap, metal teeth cutting to the bone is really but a raindrop on a hot rock. It sizzles and then evaporates.   But the mind tells the story of pain and blood, and a cold winter storm until the hurt becomes a bomb dropped on the city […]

Dance to the Song Within

A tap on my shoulder signals me to step into the center of a circle of partygoers. This is a dance-off on an autumn Sunday night. A thin, bearded man has also been tagged and now stands in front of me. I start moving in an odd way, what feels like Elaine’s notorious dance on Seinfeld. I’ve never been […]

United by Our Essence

Oh virga, blue curtain in the sky I envy you. Suspended there in the glowing light never do you fall upon the ground, swirl down the drain, or lose yourself in a muddy puddle.   Instead your icy tendrels simply evaporate.   But I am a river riding across the contours of this rocky earth as the […]

The Moon Serenades the Sun

  With every orbit my love waxes for You. The power of your brilliance awakens this dead rock.   In those times when I must go dark— hide behind our friend Earth the longing fills my craters my Plato, Copernicus, and Kepler, to the brim.   But when your effulgence again shines on my Sea […]

Love with Impunity

Tentative love, like a bubble blown through a child’s wand. Pop, and it disappears.   It’s like the falling of all daisy petals with one single uttering of “He loves me not.”   Really, love, LOVE, is more like air always present. The more one exhales the more rushes in to fill our lungs.   […]

The Old Lover

The old lover handsome in that rugged way comes to your table holds out his hand and asks you to dance.   You know you can follow that ancient desire into his arms two-step across the scuffed wood floor intoxicated by a mind-fogging cologne.   But then you remember how, in his aggressiveness, he steps […]
