Literature
unfinished business
you built a world
that was invisible
just like the words you used
to destroy it
we built a life
that everyone could see
so i built these scars
to show it leaving me
now im here, alone again
waiting on sentences you cant begin
im fooling myself with my favorite game:
believing that you somehow feel the same
and it's not enough
to put my trust in love
because your coldness burns
the tighter that im holding on
but I cant let go
of this childish hope
it's all that I have
to keep me from falling in the dark
as autumn's colors start to fade
into the dark from whence we came,
im lost in the labyrinth of my head,
agonized by the beauty of the things you said
and it wasn't right
to promise love--
how could you,
when you didn't have enough for either of us?
now we're stranded here, alone again
fighting separate battles that we cannot win
we're fooling ourselves with our favorite games
and hoping that we can somehow start again
we're not so different, you and i:
a road without a name,
a bird with

Literature
the gift that keeps ungiving
her dark arts
and pale arms
were spread
large
accepting my
lunar tics these
half-witted quips and
verbal cheap tricks my
instinct
dictates
(displaying defense
as gifts)
seems she sees
this mess as
the me
that I
want to be
not the oft
bridge burnt
wreck that
presents itself
constantly
with self-
fulfilled
prophecy
un- or sub-
consciously
collecting
the ghosts
and dashed hopes
that haunt
as he
shakes
in shades
of dusk and
decries
the night
he smothers
sparks & signs
of possible light
of passable life
of that one last
last chance
at getting it
right

Literature
Fall in America
they say our forefathers
fought for this
but my
emancipated
belief is
the state of these
united shapes today
would break their
hearts
into fifty
pieces
Anomalous lady in
incandescent light
we are kinless - and foreign
but your dress
I clutch vainly at its hem,
with its infinite stars,
and lines
that never cross.
this freedom counts costs
in loss
and lives
reviled and resized
to slip through cracks
displaced
displayed
on dollar signs
Why shiver
in your own confines?
The telescope's ring
has worn thin,
a constant
coast-line vigil,
searching for midnights,
scanning the skies
for fireworks
but what's worse
is what we're worth
or at least
what we make work
some god's implied blessing
while the world
bears its worst curse
to observe
you open your purse
for blood and oil,
while the kids
cannot learn,
take a clean flag,
wipe clean your
democracy
hold the harbour torch
an inch higher
and let it shine it brighter,
for all the nations to see.
