One Shot - Rain Coat

There’s a famous jacket who toured the world with buttons

What were those buttons?

Brass with those clasps

Hanging on your words in the morning light

Under your shadow

I try to remove with a new dawn
As it gets erased with your sunset eyes
Tell me as I remember you
With your raincoat
I fancy you in my glasses and lip gloss

As it pours down heaven

So maybe if time didn’t have a name
And a stamp
I could wear this dress a little longer

Instead I am here
With tasseled reminders
Of overdue library books
And unrequited looks

An Iris dilated in reform
In search for her soul

But we all know…
This letter will always be lost in the mail…

Page 2010-One Shot

There’s a cigar in my pocket
Conversation in my coffee
A riddle in your mouth
Not sure what it meant.

There is a sun in my sky
And a cloud in my eye
I walk in the slowing of time
Capturing memory
With one step forward

Half steps back.

A smile rots in your pocket
Holding onto it
As tight as you can
Saying goodbye and hello in sentences
I can’t seem to catch.

I sing along to your song
I see it all in the rearview mirror
And foreseeing

God offers me a light

The Devil pulls my tail

With laughter I fall to my knees
If he only knew

He was the sun in my sky

One step forward
Half back
With a cloud
And A sigh….

Where The Ocean Ends

We have to be big girls
In capes
So please
 close your eyes
 don’t ever leave me…

As I lay here and tell you my secrets
Maybe he will fall asleep
Maybe he won’t
He won’t here us dreaming
If were quiet 
Maybe our dreams well make him sweet
But right now we have to pretend
As I hold you close to me
Where pink Lens draws tears
Diluted with ABC”s
Be my confidante

Well be spy’s
I am Alice,
“Nice to meet you”

Don’t worry wer'e safe here
Commander sets sail once again
“We have to be quiet”
She says,

Hide our capes
Your safe with me

Space between veins and thread
Black ocean
we pool around your feet
Rage sits
As we grant you a smile
One dress

With memory

You never knew

Never knew I was there

As the crows circle for the feast
I am aware.

The needle in one dilated tear.
Empty atmosphere draws a blank stare

From across the room
I am an army fighting for four
Becomes two.

Water runs red.



Stepping on stones
In a crowded room

Can you see my fingers?
raw to the bone

My lips open
Words torn

Can you feel the secret on your neck?

You look out
We are alone

Rage sits
We grant you a smile

One white dress
One memory

For One Shot -Excused

I shutter in leather eyes lashes

Cuff me to black veins

Fool me into your prison

Cut me in your dungeon

I am the spy

Love me

In heart shaped locket

Keep me in your magazine article

Between news lines and spread

I am muted space

Between cherry red lipstick stains

Drawn in stitched panties

Made of lace.

Reach for me

Beyond wire rimmed lens

Dense imperfection

Music and conversation fades

I am beyond the crowds

In Contempt

Handcuffed to buttons

The way my smile creases your heart.

As I fade back into the distance

You smell me on your fingers.
