poems, from:

[omni]

show me
a devil
can enjoy
lightning
and I’ll
a worm
an inch
of its life

~

[meditations on absence]

the ransom note
in suicide’s
dream journal

the ghost of the brainwashed rocking chair

fingers
teeth
who’s keeping
score

~

[nebula]

sister has her tail

brother
his paints…

satan’s baby can clap underwater

~

[plain sight]

a hearse emerging from the shadow of a school bus

/ a mother
trying
to return
a baptized
mannequin

/ that poorly
lit
bait shop
star

~

[dogs have a darkness]

this
from the angel
raising
a zebra

~

[will miss]

/ the unique stagger
animals
in Ohio
have

/ a god
slow to pray
for the magician’s
loss / the fog’s

blood

~

[my shadow]

old
pencil-piss
in the church
of the outhouse
tattoo / birth,

its suicide
vest / seashell

on turtle’s

grave / my shadow /

its table
set
with noise
