on home turf-
feeding watermelon seeds
to the hens

a fig is not a fig without your mouth
.

a pyromaniac’s dream on top of the world

…..
at the bottom of the sea the bottom of the sea
.
raining stars
how the begging tin
sounds
.
in “Presence” #47, December 2012
…..
past her nails
a truth worth
holding on to

.

in Notes From The Gean, #14, p. 28, December 2012
…..

shooting star –
a baby slithers out
of the womb

.
frost bite
the winter bares its teeth
