sway

i recall the tug
the inescapable call
of a perfect storm
my legspaper cranes
tossed through glass 
my soul did not flinchyet i blinked twice& in the distance
wild flickers coaxedtoothsome tribal timpani
it’s a jungle in here 

Prophet

you terrify me
it’s your dishonestyyour deft spinning
of the factsinto this years
fabric of fictioncamouflage the masses
in hollowpoint buzzwordsjust enough truth
makes them dangerous

caregiver

put
a
word here
and then there
gather them ‘round you
watch as they open up their eyes
singing, showing teeth
from your hand
feed them
the
truth

aloft

upon a
mountain
we sat
souls dug in
good
uprightstill as statueswhile
smoke
& hot valley
whispers
tangoed up
trippingwild as lightningwe stayed
as they
smothered
us &
prayed
for themto cover us

fin

it
was
finished.
over. done.
good-bye. no take backs.
we watched the sun set in silence,
no single word, or better choice could’ve changed its course.
