From a flicker to a tight embrace

Where there's breath
there's hope

teetering amidst
unconventional
and the enormity
of where decisions
are decided

being one's own
biggest advocate
unleashing
locked away bravery
making sure
to openly exist
shrouded in courage

letting go of
internal nagging
setting free
the version
I have always seen
replaying
in my mind's eye

breathing in promise
to exhale
animated fear
grasping at today
at every day
clinging
fully


with both hands



and never
letting go
.

Dear Gabe

I feel like I talk to you so often even now, and yet, not often enough. So allow me this space in which to find you if you will, though I know you weren’t one for a fuss.  
     
It’s Autumn Equinox and I’m here, because by now I’d usually be telling you about it. I’d be telling you about campfires and good whittling knives, and you’d be telling me about squirrels and deer with individual names.      
     
And here’s the thing, sweet. I sat around that fire tonight and wrote down all the things I wanted to let go.      
     
It got me thinking of that time we talked about magic and how it appears in the world as I threw my envelope into the fire and watched the paper combust into thousands of stars under that just-past full moon. And I stopped for a moment.      
     
Looked up.      
     
Imagined that letter out on the wind to wherever you are.      
     
I know people will think I’m cracking up; that I’m losing my marbles (what the fuck is new) but I know damn sure you made yourself known a few weeks ago. Bolder than brass. Just enough so that it didn’t hurt for that little while.      
     
And today, I just miss you. And that’s ok.      
     
I miss calling my buddy to talk about everything and nothing. I miss good coffee and clouds of smoke and the name of every terrible band you’ve ever loved. And I miss a man I respected; that I saw as more than a friend.      
     
Sometimes friends become family. Sometimes blood runs deep.      
     
Nobody knows how to handle me.      
     
Fucking nobody.      
     
But you did.      
     
I don’t know how you did it, but you’d simmer my wreck in seconds, as if calm was your weird superpower.      
     
That was my gift from you.      
     
That was your song.      
     
So forgive me a little self indulgence, but you taught me to be selfish with time. And I’m using it to tell you you are right— you were always right. And I miss that a little harder than usual.
 
Today, fella, the leaves were gold. The sunset was high on the burning hills. There was a tawny owl hooting out a song of old.      
     
I toasted marshmallows.      
     
I know you love that shit.

Kind of a dick move

 
 
 
I realised today
that you destroyed
everything around you  
then had the cheek
to ask me to save you
from yourself

mother hen

 
 
tonight  
 
my mouth
roared down  
a microphone
 
letting  
truths spit
through a
grill,
 
i couldn't  
help feeling
absence in
a tiny room
 
knowing out  
of every soul
 
i wish  
my eye
could have
looked
out
 
to  
you.

The depth of marching on


Time is
pure
wicked


How blindly
it presses on
without you

Ignoring
the crater


that's glaringly left,




All while
I
struggle
to pull myself
out.

How To Swear (Spiritual Edition)

 
There are many words
I’d use to describe
the lake

majestic;
holy, even

I could go on
about ebb and flow;
of waves carrying my soul
to a happier place
in quieter times

a few
of these thoughts
crossed my mind
as I heard a voice
scream from a friend
behind me—

“fuck me sideways
I think my flaps
have frozen over.”



It was
truly a majestic
moment

holy, even.

An adornment of days


Today is
lavender  
wafting

Tomorrow  
awash  
in  
delicate  
primrose  
   
§  
   
The amplitude  
of  
weeks~months  
bloom  
jasmine  
violet  
and  
tulip

Flowering  
henceforth—  
   
A year,    
hope  
sprayed  
   
of  
   
tender bouquets

(NoPoo 318) Torment

Bittersweet torment
Ruthless beasts unforgiving
I suffer alone

The quiet at the end of the world

There are days
I lay ferns across
a hot chest
parallel to a heart

drink in
moist pine liquor;
swallow her down
to a mossed stomach

as I learn, humbly,
from yellow stagshorn
growing curiously
over dead wood.

It’s easy enough
to be Pagan here;
to feel the old ways
howl at haunted trees

earthing a body
hung out for dead
in a place no more
dying than living

and I—

I’m not sure
I can leave her now;
she who whips cheeks
with a cold slash of wind

she who teaches me
to gaze silently out
across an iron tarn
listening to Herne

hammering
a spinal dulcimer
with two femurs
in wildling fists

a beast
made God
in the drumbeat
of knowing.

Songs

Loud songs
about recited poetry
serenade a stillness
in the depth of my soul
the words nonsensical
the melody divine

and cryptic
was what we said
about your poems

Missing you always
