lifeboat

first lighted window in a new dark night
last willing testament of lifelong fright
near finished test of an age old dispute
waking up knowing what is seriously not cute
bending unwilling to the downward god
flossing the fang of an angry dog
removing a lentil from between the teeth
shunning the meat of animal grief
calming the neck hairs
rearranging the deck chairs of
an unlighted zendo for a vague wayfarer
licking the soul attempting repair
nursing vague insults on a desolate beach
kicking the sand from between the sheets
searching the room for new history
smacking the ghosts that get in my way
bent over words too big for me
rowing a small boat on a very big sea
healing torn cuticles
remaining unbeautiful


first lighted window in a new dark night
last willing testament of lifelong fright
