Nothing soothes There is no balm The seconds slice in Like thorns Stuck Stuck Stuck in a rut I can't untangle my soul Living is slow decay that People fight against But here's me A willing victim Stuck Stuck Stuck in a rut



Slatted windows filter in Slatted rays and slatted shade Slatted love for slotted people Slatted the depths of my heart remain Dappled light through tall trees stream Dappled woven memories of you Dappled love in tiny fragments shatter Dappled, forked alleys in silent prisms of dreams Speckled coats still as the night Speckled bands' venomous...

The Suri Chronicles – Part 2

There's nothing quite like arriving at your holiday destination early morning on the first day. I've always been super possessive about vacation days.

Midriff Gyrations and Balcony Rumination

What makes your iridescent, savage heart tick? What annihilates you, wrings you asunder? Do you pin your hopes on the day after and through the seconds, minutes and hours, flounder-- Do you dream, and invoke your mind? Are you catatonic, your neural alleys in a deep, dark bind? Do you discover dancing shapes in wispy,... Continue Reading →
