I saw us help each other
you put my wings on me
I put your wings on you

you are an experience
to be loved
to live

we are between two houses
we are our own venn diagram
I still marvel at the how of it all

a visit from kittens
a train ride after a city celebration
a dream after a movie

you’ll be the death of me
deeply felt
and cherished forever

When the rain and the birds
take turns
trees blink with flowers
overnight enchantment
begins with the snow-chasing

gentle pound pound pound
February run
no holiday cold
turned to February’s death
blood stopped the footfall

Zig zag
will it save my life
light smash


There’ll be no blood

for the work that wasn’t seen

It’s gratitude and a toast in your honor

It’s precious

 It’s a snapshot

Men kill for every reason

Only sometimes apologizing later

Umbrella thoughts

Protection needs waterproof boots

And I need you and nothing 

If the mother is the enemy

it’s only the prison of the patriarchy

How much love is there without acknowledging she struggles?

She loves as deeply as you could imagine

From the moons we can’t see and back again

But the ladder is long to the farthest moon

and the climb hurts, 

her hands are sticky 

We could wait forever 

Or chose to give it to the bees

And to ourselves

Grieve for your child

Grieve for her child

Where will you be safe?

Darling, are any of these boats safe? 

No one has left, 

the gallery walls are full

and singing

in my dreams
