Soft Violet – November 2022

Submerged in soft violet A mirrored maze Tongue-tied souvenirs The inquisator’s soup of the day Elemental pain So infinite So impossible I can remember before and after From a sunset of molten pink A public and measured groove forms on my brain A lesson from the celestial clouds My last passage to youth A newContinue reading “Soft Violet – November 2022”

Paper Boat – September 2022

Paper boat crossing my canvassed mind Saddle filled of spice and poison Stranded in the seed of day Returns to the edge of warmth  Heartbeat of the lake Pumps the rhythm of good and bad Running after the crest of the sky I find myself lost  The eyes of death are watching me I canContinue reading “Paper Boat – September 2022”

Snake Eyes – August 2022

Nameless blue whipped across the jagged sky Beyond it, a vignette of scabs and scars scattered Across the red skin of the sun Under us, white silica salt peppered into the shoreline Take comfort in reading the words she never wrote Sounds of the bird song diner Shallow bark of the yellow void And September’sContinue reading “Snake Eyes – August 2022”

Spiritstone – July 2022

Heart of sand, Drinking in the heat of the Mohican sun, Disintegrates into foreign waters Someone cook this fog into a bad daydream A sudden dumbness that lasts a lifetime Fishing for the oddball and Harvesting the salt Waiting until the day Flowers outgrow the fear in my laughter Full bloom, full darkness No longerContinue reading “Spiritstone – July 2022”

Another Year Passes – June 2022

Tunnel of darkest essence A fugitive on a moonlit trail Contaminating the cradle in the sky I was once a star up there Confidence fading into someone else’s tears Whispers of a new-found decay Whirlwinds pulling me into every direction except up Leaderless bees rest in my honeycomb mind Gliding on life’s broken wing TooContinue reading “Another Year Passes – June 2022”

Hounds – May 2022

Redemption lies beneath the sunsetTied to a dog’s tailUnable to reachUnable to floatShoebox of tricksDraining the colour out of my eyes and faceShuffled cards under my thumbTable colder than a look in the mirrorOne small wishTo have hounds instead of numbersAnother opportunity to lose more than I’d bet Pills and inverse pillsA battle between emptyContinue reading “Hounds – May 2022”

Autumn-burnt eyes – March 2022

Fire of fruit From the local pharmacy Lid tight like a bow I am ready Blue-blooded nights meet Sun-kissed lips A masterful dive into the world below One last memory for the ignorant side of me Current stream digs too deep Into the crease of my mind With hills parched like sun-dried salmon Please stopContinue reading “Autumn-burnt eyes – March 2022”

Last embers – March 2022

Heart diving into heavy clay Forever bound and lost in this kettle of earth Poison, sweet as apple pie, spreading through my head Like wildflowers in a field Reach into my mind like a jar of candy And bleach it clean Eyes drifting into a new place An unwinding dream Filming stars in my defeatedContinue reading “Last embers – March 2022”

Majordomo – February 2022

I’ve become a preconfigured dream Sitting rent-free Waiting for a good day Instead I am suspended in a cloud of memories Slowly folding like fleece The fog is coming Copper-bottomed flowers suffocate In the heat of an endless summer Steadily churning into The all-knowing peppermint peel of my spirit This face doesn’t belong to meContinue reading “Majordomo – February 2022”
