Fortune in a Fist

Fortune in a Fist She will not rage because there is no right, choke it all down, swallowed whole inside. Licking her wounds like a cat in the night, the moon carves a crescent on her wrist. shadowing the empty fortune in her fist, she will curl up, scratched, in her mountain nest.

No Navigation

No Navigation Dazed inside infinite doorways of doubt, no no no, it can’t be, it’s not her, she’s me, I am her. The compass is pulled apart, broken down. Navigation is a cruel mess in this town, where everything is only what you want to see, what you want it to be. What was understood is impossibly real, so the signs, in their profound certainty, reroute back to doubt, instantly. Hands feel naked with nothing to hold onto, looking for a pulse….rubbernecking for […]

He was distracted, she reacted. She […]

Youth’s blanket disintegrates, triggering a weight with rapid pulse. Synchronicity She sheds her thickened snakeskin From among the beam in black waters; Laddering stars to reach the altar of Hermes, Where his fickle breath takes her again. Sea of Stains Her arms awry in an intangible embrace Unsheltered in the storm of a singular place Hands turned anchors in her sea of stains Letting the waves whitewash the sane Paralleled Shadows. Reflections. Us but not ourselves. The intangible but seen, Glimpses of the universe […]
