Small flat;
nice neighborhood;
job opportunities;
beautiful, vibrant cityscape;
inquire!

flee grasping hands
like butterflies adrift,
unsought upon the still finger
alight.

The sky
fills with pink clouds
that glide lazily east.
A bird chirps farewell to the light
of day.

inserps typos wherever she goes.

Of day
flowers in pots
and birds in their cages.
Of night with stars on closed curtains.
Earth Day.

Earth, day
of squandered light,
night of blossoming thorns,
we sleep with open eyes and see
the void.

the void:
weightless, silent
yet deafening—ba bump...
gulp, pop...ba bump...hiss, hum...ba bump...
endless

To fly,
perchance to … Ah,
what would Shakespeare have said?
Fledglings perching on their nest’s edge
ponder.

Ponder
This - you ‘love’ me,
Yet you never knew me -
Never tried. You never will. What
A waste.

A waste
laid before me
calls my name with silence.
Can I but go out wandering
To death?

To death
we inch onward,
with no kicking or screams,
day-by-day as the future draws
closer.

Closer,
our hands brush past,
you nurse an almost smile,
and I wonder if we two want
the same.

Run wild,
sprint in the sun,
dance under the moonlight,
whisper to the loam with both feet;
you live!
