shame, introspection, drug,
sometimes you are in its minimal spotted light...sometimes!
other times you just know you've been touched and you freeze,
moved but frozen...like a stranger it moves in,...
October: I'm eighteen, shortcutting home
through an autumn-burnished churchyard -
copper-lustred leaves, moss-skinned stone -
a jaunty swing of skater skirt and arm,
college folder square-sturdy in my hand.
I hunger to taste your solid wood stare
You and I, no one else at all
Snuggling under the stars
Hungry for each others ears
Chasing every comet...
I Wore Your Skin
shame, anger, bullying, dark, deep,
~I wore your skin~
Brother, I wore your skin last night
Nothing but friction, blood -dry ink
Announcing a crush "Silence by the Sky!"
Integrity denied, endangered enemy

Have YOU been to The Hollow? Would you dare to speak its name?
shame, change, death, god, heaven,
Seeing through these cold dead eyes now,
This world looks much different.
The scars of one’s life entire,
Appear now for all to see.

I went home for lunch,
I never go home for lunch.
When I got to our apartment
I don't know why but I didn't reach for my key.
Tears on her pillow - continued from A girl named Sue
shame, fate, first love, hope,
Tears for a Mother
Fears for a Father gone
Fate deals an unfair hand
The door to youthful joy closing
on adolescent shoulders imposing
grown up responsibilities instead
Eyes sadly deprived...

that burned your innocence at 21... and though
you claimed flashes of...
shame, abuse, art, body, death,
All I got
I hope not
Cry out loud
I think not
I am too proud
I am loved a lot
A Little Kindness Never Hurts
Sit with me.
Sit with me, ragged feral,
do not be afraid,
fight for no space uncertain,
you will be soothed, you will be safe,
you only need sit with...

Who Can Argue Miracles Exist
Who Can Argue Miracles Exist?
No man, be he grandiloquent or coarse;
shame, garden, love, rose, sweet,
The blackberry's love for the garden rose
Brought down the gardener's wrath.
The blackberry sensed the danger
As he wended the garden path.

You are a human being they told me, something you should treasure
But isn't a human being the only animal who kills for pleasure?

THE BROKEN DOLL
shame, abuse, childhood, conflict, fear,
Walls of silence hold,
The child held within,
Cries out for release.
Relative solitude comforts,
Not the tortured soul,
Inward coiling withdrawing,
Shattering Rose Glasses
shame, education, philosophy,
I thought I was coloured blind
free thinking and kind
with an evolved mind
Loving and accepting
of the ones I find
Yet my blindness
Is that of...
In The Chill Of An Open Door
shame, angst, caregiving, death, father,
Cleaning out my refrigerator, an ice cube slides to the floor
startling the cat, and interrupting a locomotive of thought
that often tracks me down in...
The Old Dark House
