Fight off fancy,
And fortune will come 
In the squish
In the pull
And the salty fingers of the sea.
Trembles of silver ring 
In the shiver 
In the breath
And the quiver of the limb.
The gold youth rises
In the kiss
In the song
And the glimmering crown of the sun.

Catcalls for cattails

The river speaks
In low river grumbles
As low as the rush
Of wind swept tree mumbles
And the sky streaks
As passerby cloud tumbles
And upon my tush
I sit in grassy brumbles.

White light

The demons crawl in
The battle begins
Find the white light
wherever it may be

Look up at the sky full of snow
Slowly, the little whites fall on my face
Let them gather.
Laying, they form the mountain of me
I am the white mountains
I am the one that can’t be moved
I am the crest that sees the trees upon my breast
In their white winter coats
And I will hold the dark demons at bay.

Through the night,
The sky holds all
Looking up,
I find my place between bright lights
I am the star
That radiates
I am the heat
That consumes

Demons be damned,
I will scratch and I will bite.

I am the seashell by the shore
I am the empty shell of days to come.

Won’t you hold me to your ear— hear my whispers of the ocean’s growing tide?
Won’t you blow into me— fill me with hot air for the trumpet sound?
Won’t you hold me— so tight that I shatter?
Won’t you cast me to the waves— feel the hair on your arm raise as the blows tear my edges away?
Sally, won’t you buy me?
Sally, won’t you sell me?

I am the carcass of things to be.

We will search the world over
In hopes of finding that one
To sit with us
At the quieting of day.

Crows

Three crows caw,
A dog barks,
A cat meows.

I wait for time to show.

One crow flies.
One crow flies.
One crow flies.

The cat meows,
The dog barks,
I caw.

Deformed and patient,
The beginning sets on the quest 
For the end 
For the kiss
For, in that moment, 
Night whispers sweet things of the dawns cracking,
The grass hums and trembles in rushes of joy at the curling breeze,
And light opens its hands, palms up, fingers splayed, offering entire worlds for the taking.

Beggars begin, times endure.

The wind rushing over treetops
Brushing rattles beat out the push
And a heavy dripdrip marks the mete
“Hush, hush, little child.
It is night.”

I never got close
Because a single bound of somekind,
may have
crossed my mind.

Closer, and closer
Yes: I am afraid of heights.
But who isn’t?

 Bumbling, and stumbling

Always carry a little fire
To dare the jaws and claws away


But who can?

There is a cockle which hums
with a thousand suns
