dispensing vexation
millimeter by millimeter
digging down
through ash and clay and dust
for remnants of meaning
proof that we were here
and will be

6 feet down
scrapping the walls for signs of life
or nesting
smudging the walls
of our future home

28 de Mayo

mi esposa
es una estrella
nunca luna
ni la planeta

mi esposa
es una estrella
siempre luminosa
y siempre constante

Ella es mi agua
la curadora de mi herida
mi medicina

se dice que
amor es ciega
pero no te lo creas
por que mi amor es una estrella

pero a veces
las estrellas
parece a lo lejos
del alcance

y a veces
las estrellas
esta oscura
esta oculta
y yo no veo

mi estrella
si disculpa
entragare mi vida

stripped naked tulips
wilting lilac blossoms
Spring’s fading bloom

the sky cries Mary
boiling on the horizon
like clouds by Stieglitz

Stieglitz on clouds

Barbless Hooks

dusty old textbooks
tired faded photography
hunting for hunting

feral cats chase wrens
best laid plans for naught
the myth of conservation

snagging a trophy
steel leaders and treble hooks
resigned butchery

catch and release
fantasy declawed blood sport
anachronistic creel

light tippets and barbless hooks
one missed opportunity
spawning another
