Through Her

I could see through her,

not lightly,

into a dimension

of beckoning trees

and slanted moons,

where blues and stars

were full to taste.

Gears & Pulleys

Open him up

gears & pulleys

bolts & screws

metal & flesh

   substituted parts

      to walk on his own

         alone

forward & home

Freedom

Forward
she swings
smiling

kicks her legs back
in reverse

once more
she dives
then up

arcs into a cloud

empty seat returns
spins wild
chains clatter

Let It Go

   I walk over the sound of hate,
lives small in the weed thistle,
crunching in the melting snow,
along with bones breaking
in the dry forest tree,
sap crystallized
under the
bark.
   Won't the ivy climb 
anyway,
hand placed above the other,
over and over?
   I can't look up anymore
without losing my place,
hearing the moans
below me.
