New Futures




between you and me our
spring skin was every spring

and every day lasted all day
every night went on forever

and there was happiness
timeless untouchable

futureless


excerpt from New Futures, from a forthcoming poetry/painting project.

Mountain

Below is an excerpt from a forthcoming series of intertwined poetry and paintings with the working title This City Is A Mountain.

some part of us
is beautiful
first like the first
beautiful thing
standing staring
into the face
of the sun

our apple smile
cool knowing now
our apple eyes
hurt wandering
want












This Time It's A Love Song

Below is an excerpt from a forthcoming series of intertwined poetry and paintings with the working title This City Is A Mountain.


in the dark cement days walking looking down
clenched tight to find warmth in tense muscles
we forget what the world looks like
and then the purple yellow green bulbs pink on bark
bloom and say this is what the world looks like new
Here I am



Here I am
this time it's a love song
floating black globes like bubbles in tar
celebrating spring and the harshness of life
like a bee on your lips
born in bodily pain
and bodily desire it pops like "plop"
blooming thick I feel this place is more beautiful
than I can say this is what the world looks like
Here I am



Here I am
