        NaPoWriMo Day 1: Against Analysis

          Theses of Joy

          Theses of Joy Joy is a virtue haunted by the way human bodies materialize in front of where they are, on a narrow street strewn with bricks where thru a 3rd story window one can see that a saint hovers anxious & common over a sink full of plates. Joy resists the shame of mirth, ...

                NaPoWriMo Day 7: Hauntings

                Hauntings Next to the park across the street huddles a little cemetery. A block away a larger one sprawls, more neatly kept— although wall stones in one spot have tumbled down and left an opening. No one is kept out or in. Twenty years we've lived here and not met one ne...

                    Caraway Seeds in Crystallized Honey A pataphysical love song How beautiful is thy dwelling, my beloved! As you delicately place mousetraps in the pantry, how stately thy pulse! How amiable thy armpits, their abundant hair a fragrant bower for the homesick nose! Oh my duvet embroidere...

                      At Least I Take Notes I tell myself, Wake up, you moron, your house is burning! Put it out or call for help or run away! I holler, I cajole, I plead, I scold. Helplessly I watch myself toss spices, powders, salts into the flames, experimenting with the colors they make, seeing whic...

                        History of You and Me for R.A. When we met: Weary, both, from recent battles and battering storms, we hoped only in one another to find fleeting respite.
