Teaser poem "Morning After"

December 24, 2016

Here's a poem from my forthcoming chapbook Windows and a Looking Glass:


Morning After


Last night we drank ourselves into desperate darkness and now

a freight train hurtles and rips through my head

It derails in the nebulous oblivion between sex and sleep

The dawn coasts into day

weaving and dragging pleasures and shadows

mingling with sharp edges and you


We wake with hot foggy mouths heavy hesitant eyes

clinging blindly and silently to our cloaked selves

In the fragile cocoon of each other we founder and sink





Tell me again how I am

in the red gold glow of early light
