Windowed

The unlady-like verified mystery windowed in hesitating stares leaning on unsteady sturdy knees every single day begs, borrows, repeats decaying songs from loving scars in the mirror fearing in the mirror breathing out mist fed by the sea   Natalie resides in Peoria, Arizona, with her husband, two children, and two dogs.

The Wave

This stormy afternoon Every story in stare Pulling my hair for Pages torn too soon A curtain of words Remain everywhere   Pages and strands Pages and strands   The night is absent Flickering cigarettes And green fairy absinthe Leaving your breath For my burdened body Made to never forget   Vertical hands Vertical hands   Washing the day’s start Already…so far away Nature meant change For you, the fourth tide For me, taken in it’s wave The just in case… […]

Ocean Verse

Ocean Verse seeking the skies below on a solo powered flight as jagged air meets gentle dust she flies backwards protected like a pinecone in a purse between cerulean highs and goodbyes she sinks upwards curving to the water’s feet every energy is reversed in this place she’s forever seen but could never uncover she calls the vital force becoming her own wave crash-testing the outside the seraphic octopus songs bubble her to low tides all legs on the electric […]

Today…Yesterday…Tomorrow #3

Today… Is lucky number thirteen A leftover, fluttering month Singing every stored up sound Out of a tied-up old tongue Once…but not done   Yesterday… It rained pig wheels and rainbow elephants A dream of childish damsels canned by daggers Hurts…what is worse   Tomorrow… Will be a clover of two or three Next to none at all Wouldn’t that be something Lucky wild animal Growing…in the green   Previous: Today…Yesterday…Tomorrow #2 Today…Yesterday…Tomorrow #1 Natalie resides in Peoria, Arizona, with […]

Today…Yesterday… Tomorrow #2

Today… Was like a postcard from a friend A few words to lift me up On a day I’d never met A gesture to jettison the grownup   Yesterday… Was like a wide-eyed mirror Rousing tomorrow’s blood But still nothing seems clear What’s here, returned, left of me Tomorrow… Brings up a smile lost in the shadows The release of nothing matters A long climb out the window To reimagine the internal rafters.   Part 1 here   Natalie resides […]

Flip Side

Flip Side You weren’t supposed to find this place were you? You weren’t supposed to see inside you. Go back, go back under the covers! But you won’t, will you? No…no, you’ll stay up and burn up the rules, like the wind carries fire from tree to tree. You weren’t supposed to feel so much, were you? No, don’t touch anything, or let your heart and soul grow. But you did and now… you’re inside the storms that move winter […]

Red Heart Blue

Skidded down skeleton-truths Down down down, until I crashed myself Upside-down On a pile of farewell smiles… That eggshell youth… I won’t go higher Or faster without my red balloons I know, not here on this floating feeling… The rocket fuel for flying, that childhood lightening struck my blue-red heart struck my red heart blue… Again, again and at the same time… The future handles push my ankles through, every lost feeling too… The energy, that energy can never disappear, […]

A Stream of Consciousness from a Little Mouse, Long Ago…

I was a dressed up mouse In our dad-made treehouse As if all I could do was pout… Hands on my hips, tongue sticking out of my lips… They forgot to tell me to come down for dinner. So I listened to the beetles call and became a singer I gave my favorite doll leaf-water tea and leftover mudcakes we were so happy. Up here my rabbits could not escape through broken down fences… no habits to run to or […]

Winter’s Back

Cannonballing Winter’s back with my eyes and my pen; fighting myself back.. In the desert sand I stand with my return of wind and lifting chin… Holing prescriptions empty-fisted and forever unfilled and I’ll let go… turning torpedoes into wishes.
