Subconquer

conquer and divide
sift and revive
complicate, endure
be enamoured
reveal or conceal
shield or heal
heads or tails
to dock or to sail
resuscitate or hesitate
or just levitate
managing hope
far away
from a telescope
moored in the harbor
waiting for
a suitable carver
to cover
to ensnare
butterfly dreamers
outwit the constable
outplay the corporal
forget the critic
remember analytics
conquer and divide
sink or survive

By Ear

we are entwined
in the life divine
so we speak
and we’re meek
what is this gravitas?
no clear cost analysis
paralysis
reaching the summit
warnings of the plummet
playing with fire
always is dire
wherever we are
whatever we are
we’re playing it by ear

Apple

sweet and savory
melodramatic and moody
quiet quiver
amicable ardor
drawing bow string
Fistmele
Idiosyncrasies
biting lips
blushing
hushing
this helix
at arrow point
aiming for the invisible
adjust hypertension
bearing that friction
wobbling spearhead
involuntary vanguard
dormant reflex
hosting the intangible
clairvoyance for the edible

Leaf Memory

The memory of a leaf

imprinted outline of a shadow

the pigments soaked through– rotting

and now lies the remnant lying

face down or face up

staring at a crime scene

at the diaspora of scattered stamps

which are now mere phantasm memories

of chlorophyll fading away

readying of winter’s ponderous weight

revealing their pomegranate red, orange sunset, yellow banana

a tragic phoenix death

the last sputtering gasp of a volcano

before decomposing for future fertilization

Mask

And so you keep on composing a dirge
rescinding back into the rip tide
being magnetized by uncanny powers
oh what malevolent measures
enraptured our envisions
as we wore a terrific mask
all thought we were harlequins
but behind the dimly lit glass window
are the mere projections of insidious trepidation
with elf-like levity we tread lightly on the forest leaves
whilst children beg for candy
we are walking for the first time
like a cripple without a cane
in the broad shining daylight
the joke was on everyone
