clouds floating by with their weighted sighs. Read More

“The mountains are so dominant
that some days the people refuse
to look at them as children
turn away from the fathers who beat them”

Breathing the pure air, cutting my teeth
on slender fingers for she would give
everything to protect, to shelter, to feed.

“Just beyond the bruised lips of consciousness.”

from Birds Again

viewing the world through tangled trees
 
a purple haze of permanent contusions,
 
amid barren thoughts of rotting leaves
 
the result of love damaged beyond reason.
