  • There’s something there…

    say it was in the stars, something supernatural led me to you. say it was the moon pulling my tides closer to you. it’s something deeper than a mere connection. it’s something in the waiting & it grows with our knowing. you can’t put your finger on it. there’s something there. some will call it […]

  • In Solidarity

    He looks to the left, a quick pause to check the commotion. There’s shouting crying out on the street. Stomping boots, signs in hand. It’s another day, another protest, nothing to worry over. She questions him, “What’s happening?” It could be anything, or nothing at all. They want attention and this is the day they […]

  • Have You Noticed

    After Mary Oliver have you noticed how certain poems linger in the echoes of yesterday how certain triggers replay a certain phrase how hanging onto words engulfs an empty room how walking through fields begets velvet moonlit nights listening to you how spinning a record after dropping a needle births a mountain of longing and […]
