    Cling to memories—
    hollow shells caught in my web.
    Waiting for dinner.

    Waiting for dinner,
    the wolf spider in his lair
    disguised as your life.

    Wooden rough tree rings

    allegiance to her beauty—
    a poisoned apple.

    A poisoned apple,
    Stealthy footfalls in the night.
    Regret, writ in blood.

    Regret, writ in blood,
    Swift death, wrote on surprised face,
    The war, etched in time.

    The war, etched in time,
    like scratches made in granite,
    outlasts truth and lie.

    Outlasts truth and lie,
    the simple statement of love
    in your brilliant eyes.

    Invest them with care --
    your tolerances define
    who cannot hate you.

    glad that's just a phase,
    childhood turns to somber thoughts;
    joy is the way out

    Joy is the way out--
    Look for the green sign, through the
    smoke, past the bodies.

    Distorted image:
    myself, in the eyes of friends.
    Am I, then, a ghost?

    Self image unknown,
    yet the rose exudes beauty,
    despite pouty ways.

    a gray sea cultivates quays;
    fearless boats bear storms

    Fearless boats bear storms
    Like water over the bow,
    Like clouds in their wake.
