Chewing On The Escape Key

18:55 Nov 28 2007
Times Read: 1,058


I’ll miss the climb,

But not the rope burns

Where I was harnessed to you

Belaying and delaying

The letting go

The letting you fall.


Deciduous branches,

Skeletons that once were trees,

Wear their winter and hold the sky,

Gasping and rasping

At my nerve

At my spring memory.


I’ll miss the tire swing,

But not the rope burns

Where you pushed too hard too fast

Playing and saying

You’re mine

You’re mine tonight.


Your games of chase

Swallowed you like whiskey,

Broke your umbrella, and left me

Storming and forming

My future,

My future without you.

Empty Places

“Given the choice between the experience of pain and nothing, I would choose pain.” –William Faulkner


“Hell is yourself and the only redemption is when a person puts himself aside to feel deeply for another person.” –Tennessee Williams



Arms looped round my knees,

Back against the wall.

Time inside of time

Moves slowly for me

As white light fixes

Upon my dark hour.

The world rushes

Into traffic jams,

Rubbernecking

At the sight of me

Crashed upon the wet earth

Beneath the graffiti

I slid down,

Beside the place

Where you do not sit

Next to me.

I look up and see

A broken wheel lies

In the mud at my feet

And I drop the card,

Watching it blow away.

I remember one glass

Waiting to be washed.

The Voyeur's Gasp

I felt your fingers from across the world

Drawing velvet drapes against the light.

You wear your darkness curled

In around your neck and cinched tight.


From across the world, I felt your chest

Rise and fall as the sun leaned sideways

Near the windowpane, spying you at rest.

You wear my light unaware in your hideaways.


The slanted shaft of a subdued white hue

Echoes my soft finger-play in that warm ray

Drizzling acute angles along the length of you

And I shiver at the sight, from a world away.
