    A red dragonfly --
    at a point in, at a point,
    a point, and at rest.

    a point, and a rest,
    contemplative counterpoint;
    life is a balance

    Life is a balance
    beam wobbling beneath our feet
    as our hips hula.

    As our hips hula,
    The islands remain so calm.
    The party goes on.

    The party goes on
    though the guests are not the same.
    Who opened the door?

    Who opened the door
    and let in the fallen leaves?
    More work for the broom.

    your goodbyes trail out the door
    love can be messy

    love can be messy—
    arrhythmia and heartbreak.
    mend it back to whole.

    Mend it back to whole—
    A broken gate stuck open
    can keep nothing in.

    can keep nothing in,
    the keeper of my secrets,
    she blogs all day long.

    She blogs all day long,
    But blogging isn't her WIP,
    Deadlines approaching.

    The Muse is sleeping,
    Rumpled sheets, one leg dangling,
    Dreams of tortured words.

    waterboarded into truth --
    this poem lies sleeping.

    This poem lies sleeping
    between the matted layers--
    my pile of laundry.

    my pile of laundry
    hides tales of chaotic days
    in collars and seams

    In collars and seams
    Where everyday secrets hide
    To be washed away.

    To be washed away--
    sweet love swept me off my feet
    like the Johnstown Flood.

    Like the Johnstown Flood --
    boards, glass, rocks in its waters --
    your words have context.

    your words have context
    but mine float around empty
    helpless in the wind

    helpless in the wind
    water drops onto parched land
    power in the rain
    If I'd had more time, I'd have written a shorter letter. Mark Twain

    power in the rain
    fragility in the dam
    quiet in the town

    Quiet in the town,
    The streets and sidewalks empty,
    The trains running late.

    The trains running late,
    time pulls its Mussolini
    sharp on my patience.

    Sharp on my patience,
    like a pocket full of pins,
    her raspy voice calls.
