She was moon beams on

Sloping rocky ledges,

And like the moon, I watched her come and go.

Someone disengaged the parking break, and the little two-seater just rolled down the hill,
Past houses and he couldn’t catch it, with that face.
Mostly, it’s him and that face.

Who cares about the fucking car?

Nights soon over,

Sleeping bags together under stars and black sky as far as

I can see-  white specks-

Watch him,

Throwing up signals, feet dancing like

As fast as I go I will never catch up.

These things that have happened between us,

Secrets like honey bees, small battles fought together under

One canopy, one banner to unite us.

Shall we linger on here? Sweet words of paradise,

Books, stamps, letters written home to

Red shutters on your windows.

space age, winding dwarf planets,

celestial lines like markers on fabric,

who sets the record, sets course

for your ship.

Long road,

Long sky–

Running on below.

Eleven by fourteen,
Cutting cardboard into squares and shapes and
Painting over and over and

voice like surf at the shore,

echoing in my ears. no long life together

no growing old. you gone– unexpectedly,
wicked little sparrow

time spent together fleeting and ephemeral.

who am i to go to now?

what place, what far shore, what sea
will have me now?

november twenty first,
hands on her chest like
if you breathe a little life in her
she won’t be gone
and you’ll be alright.
