Talk to Me, Man


Only this atheist
throws her head back
and prays to no one.

 

 

The Sun Rains Too


I held the sun
while it rained

And there came
the second sweetest thing
that ever did stain
this dress

 

 

A Drag


You drag me down
by the tongue
Into a salty sea
of love and rum

 


Black Birds


Birds
nesting in my bed,
Tiresome little thoughts
resting in my head

Cuddle up with me,
Insomnia

we’ll watch some Hitchcock

 

 

Me Too, Mr. Hill

Fred Hill told his wife
“I want life, I tell ya. Life!”

I fell to my somber knees
and cried “Me too.”
