Measured time by picking blueberries

How many children you birthed versus how many you raised

What color is stardust?

You’ve cost me a lot of money, guest

I don’t have answers for you

Because I barely have answers for myself


Measured time by picking strawberries

Sparkling into relaxation

Stumbled into astonishment and lastly

Snuggling with dread

We need help

To get rid of him

I tip toe to my death

Moon watching 

Watching magpies and me

My brain feels enlarged as you lie

I scatter 

Little mice 

Up my spine into my hair 

The moon stays the same 

Mama please remind me 

How it shined for both of us

No matter where we are 

Saturated rainbow lorikeets 

Have died

My brain drowns 

Twin engines


By your tattle tails

I revisit

I don’t linger

All I know now

Brings a smirk

And some decent


That the board game


Blue chalked sidewalk 

Dull knife pierces 

a shiny red heart shaped balloon 

Hello, rain 

Dropping leaves dripping

Overgrown bangs

Cold hands 

I’m inside the iced covered pond 

She wasn’t born on Valentine’s Day 

She was a cheerleader


not at the right time

little pigeon 

Three little pigeons 

She took great care 

Home covered in snow 

surrounded by tigers with star halos 

I can’t misuse Pedro’s magic 

And forget where the fireflies sleep 

Wednesday’s are for the beach 
Sunday’s for ice cream 

Did you see the smiling moon, 

sister mother, 

mother sister 

So much power 

In snow whites hair 

Everything is in my imagination, little mouse 

Sorry you’re uncomfortable 

sorry we’re not accommodating 

sorry you’re suffocating 

Recycle your soul

Hold on black swan, 

hold on 

She traces the lens 

Repeating what if

What if 

What if 

I’m gonna borrow her voice 


She never imagined she’d bury him

five days after her birthday 

Forget and fly 

How many bad calendar days 

will you provide 

How many stirred paintings 

have heard your stories 

The dear dog shakes his head in disbelief 

The most pathetic you 

who soars to watch others rot 

Resist the urge to trust 

Butterflies are still beautiful upside down 

What happened

I am loved 

I am loved 

I am loved 

I got no problem with you spider

or the garbage man outside

I can say with certainty that five and ten years from now I’ll be

so red

from things I’ve said

I wonder if mountains can be evil

if hiding marbles can be magic

She threw my glasses after ripping them from my face

She touched me and told me not to tell

I was scratched backstage

laughed at for attending to my best

Why do my friends want to die?

You told me the news without coming close

my brain sees pink on the inside

I’m sad the yes is gone

I layer my lipstick

he was alive 8 minutes ago
