Sitting in ruins

Sitting in ruins
after the apocalypse
the mint still smells good

Tasks hanging about

Tasks hanging about
like a winter washing line
clothes stretching for days

"It's just you," she says

"It's just you," she says
I walk past her house at night
teasing or relieved?

Facebook sucks dogs dicks

Facebook sucks dogs dicks
after years they found a link
now I'm banned again

Dried blood from a bird

Dried blood from a bird
casts a shadow on the road
even after rain

Winter changes pace

Winter changes pace
allowing water to rest
sparkling in the sun

You can learn a lot

You can learn a lot
watching how marshmallows roast
technique and patience

A friend pointed out

A friend pointed out
Baiame in the night sky
Now I can't not see

Jupiter taunts me

Jupiter taunts me
clouded evening and morning
yet shines while I pee

Shifting our language

Shifting our language
let's make kinship a focus
females as sisters

Sign says "Be aware"

Sign says "Be aware"
as we walk an ancient land
"Songlines everywhere"

Finding lost money

Finding lost money
is like payment for cleaning
at ten cents an hour

Disproportionate

Disproportionate
my mouth has gravity
words fall out of it

From out of the blue

From out of the blue
making associations
bridging new meaning
