twice

you stripped my tree of its womb.
you stripped my body of its fruit.
you took, to take again.

my muse

eye through a lens. you in a one inch box.
captured time,
and again.
i took so many pictures of you.

so many faces of you.
when did i stop?

biting
at the
bit.

my teeth
mark
skin.

harder.
deeper
in.

in circles

snowglobe
our kind of winter driving

use

caution.
sharp curves ahead.

today (or one year ago)

look.
up.
ripe plum skin and double bubble sky
the sky looks like a photograph
now, it looks like a painting.

look.
the dogwood trees are in full bloom.

5.1.17

here overhead
it is shaded, clouds sail across the sun.
but                on a mountain in Nepal
is it raining?

do you know if a snowflake screams as it falls?
