there is a
power inside
the eardrum

stretching
further than
a tongue

carving
out names
into silver
bullets

(NoPoo 236) Biting Pleasures

deep pillow biting
ineffable murmurings
buried in pleasure

Just the usual weather[ing]

I ran across the heated sand
waiting for the tides
wave after wave
crash across an impending shore

winds whip their scars
deep within this water's edge
as rip tides cut dangerous
out of sight where they lie in wait

blue beckons of grey
sometimes, nearer to - skies glow an orange-ish
humidity mixes with pressure
a strange feeling in preparation

last chances of safe winds
and simple shoreline walks;
having water that is aplenty
and my favorite, Dewars and soda


THAT'S weathering it just right,
a cocktail, new batteries
and my flashlight radio—



just another day in Tampa

My "essentials" preparing for Tropical Storm Elsa (if she's still one by the time she gets here.)

(NoPoo 237) My Existence Within


i only exist
within whisper breaths of love
that caress my skin

Handle number five

snapped off
the front door  
this morning
 
I wouldn’t mind  
but it’s only been  
seven months—  
 
I wonder  
what normal people  
spend their money on.

Dreamers

we were dreamers
watching our beloved
gliding through rosy clouds
eyes lit up with love's fire

tears came with our laughter
our words like dueling poetry
creating worlds out of air
a lifetime lived in minutes

we had stories yet to tell
but the curtains fell
my shouts of encore
fell on deaf ears

I am still seated
in this empty theatre
remembering songs and dance
faded in stale air

Brutal Phantom Pain, Exquisite Dreams and A Once Upon a Time

It's within the blurry haze
when I catch tiny glimpses
those split second aches
that nearly break me
bringing me to my knees

Renewed awareness
of absence
How very much I've missed
Memories that will never be made
and the hole that never quite heals

Pain attracts
Like, like attracts like
Reasoning never of any solid reason
is where in stasis becomes routine
and a soul slowly withers

Without even realizing
it had always been withering
from that moment forward....

by the death
of your very beginning.

And on every corner, they cheered

 
 
there’s rapture
in the streets  
 
they’re ripping
off their masks—
 
the people look  
alive at last

it's one of those 3am's

 





i push the window open
hang my legs out,
blow vape smoke
only to stare at absolutely nothing;
unless you count
a green buttplug belonging to a giant
as a gentrified building
in an urban sea of aching
loneliness,
whoever designed it should be shot
under a polluted
july sky
my neighbours dog just barked
in agreement,
so i confirm the city dead
as blue sirens
sing dead lullabies
into ear canals
drowning in
white
noise.

Relentless

there is no warmth
in the heat of the sun
no blushing glow
in its heat's halo

there's no voice
calling the beloved home
there's no feeling
on the textured skin

there is a  majestic indifference
to life, air  blankets what it smothers

They say, it's the hardest trophy to win in professional sports.... who am I to argue?...

Warriors,
one and all—
Proven heroes
of ice and grit

Back to Back
their victories roar
of Lighting
and Distant Thunder

A bloody,
brutal battle

Won
(again)
seems
Lord Stanley stays

Yep, another year
getting his tan perfected in Tampa Bay

(NoPoo 239) Beyond Exquisite Taste

little one taken
delicate soul so devoured
savoured beyond taste

I too am a lover of prayer

 


that first
cup of tea

cigarettes after
insomnia

your hands
next to mine
as I fall asleep

When freedom was only a bike ride away

The scent of honeysuckle
Oh how memories infiltrate,
conjuring long bike rides
banana seats
and double dipped ice cream cones

Those first senses of teen freedom
watermelon jolly ranchers
building forts
making nightly fire pits
warding off mosquitoes

From days first light
until fireflies twinkling bright
being among those friends
so sacred and profound, that group  
certainty in friends forever, of course

Times of my life (up until then)
cemented in all that youth;
swimming, night jasmine
that first kiss, from the read headed boy
that I always squealed was "ewww"...

Sprinklers, water balloons
night time hide and seek
my favorite— Kick the Can
being so scared hiding,
that I swear I was going to pee myself

Sleepovers, prank calls
mixed with attempts at light as a feather
backyard camping, s'mores
toilet papering houses
and jiffy popcorn

Summer carnivals
collecting money for "Jerry's Kids"
sleeping in the cool basement
watching this thing called MTV
finding new awareness of what being unique

really meant

Discovering a new sense of self
without usual pressures
an oasis of summertime
where latitude was happily given

and three months
of 'emancipation'
was it's own
cherished reward
