This body

Having moved beyond desirability
that brief window

Desire remains

but internal
a concept
not to be expressed

October 24, 2022

To disconnect from this body
to unidentify with it

To not feel sadness when seeing it

To accept this body as it is
to experience it without the
judgment of capital

august 2022

August 6, 2022

Blood furtive
A ruptured hemorrhoid

I want this out of my body

You are tar
To be emptied

August 110, 2022

Sensitive gums
A fear of disease
teeth falling out.

August 13, 2022

The crickets quiet
and low

grateful for all
insects that sing

leaves sing in
their friction
with wind

the breeze
open windows
voices of neighbors

the trees are full
with leaves
and wind

we are trees
we are trees


August 15, 2022

Sing to the earth
Lay peace upon the ghost

Grow grass tall for the crickets
The singing insects at night

August 21, 2022

In evening
we family for ice cream
Coffee, caramel
strawberry cheesecake,

Sun setting
Trees and crickets

The man asks if he is excited
for school to start tomorrow

Kind of

Return home walking
in the cool of this evening

August 31, 2022

Venus in the sky tonight
Remember –

Walking home after school
with my son

Looking at the stars

The chill of late autumn

July 2022

July 13, 2022

In the sand and pines
of the Delaware shore
Where cicadas sing
a different song

July 18, 2022

(Pennsylvania Turnpike)

Beautiful and hateful

A wall of tree and cloud

garfield park

June 27, 2022

An afternoon storm
thunder and wind pass
smoke in the air
a remnant of rain
in drips

Breeze against both face
and bare arms

A calm of trees and grass
bushes and flowers
all tranquility
surrounded by city
it is heard
but not seen

joyfully alone

a word for

February 28, 2022.

The word for reading a new book by an author new to you and discovering that the words don’t resonate, don’t land at all. Instead they simply roll by, flitting in and out without leaving an imprint in your brain. Repeatedly re-reading the same page or pages, over and over, without realizing you’ve already read and re-read them.
