Poetry


Distant Sky

Across highways of water and wind lies a mist-coated isle, where purple mountain peaks sit, perched, overseeing the rolling green hills where the cicadas sing her a song. Towering stone stairwells. The heave of her breath, air in her lungs gushing out like whirlwinds...

Pompeii

If so, let me go into the imaginary city.   Let me wander in a trance between grief and miraculous abandonment,   where decorative walls gleam; artwork dances opposite marble.   Claw-like branches sprawl. The yellow bird turns sideways, clinging.  ...

Little Blue Clown

Guadalupe. You used to sit on her alter the alter by the round window facing east The bright siesta sun shining through its baked, white corners. Its rays illuminated Guadalupe and the mountains of flaming candle wax surrounding her Sarita would pray Every day To lift...

Playground

The playground was my favorite place to go on Saturdays. You would take me by the hand, and we would go there together. I tried to match my stride to yours, but I was too small. Even my shadow looked so short compared to yours.   I remember running to the swings...

Alpha-Bio Poem

2010    “Alpha-Bio Poem”    February 2 Alto range I sing this song, Burning with desire. Hold me tight oh entity Clouding in inquires. Deafening silence surrounds my home; no one dare speaks to me. Evading shadows besiege my view, empties out the memories. Fighting...

Anna, Undone

Anna wakes at midnight to the distant sound of heavy glass falling to the floor. She squints her eyes and they adjust to the darkness in the bedroom. Pale light filters in through the tree branches outside her window. Her body is sticky with sweat. It’s the middle of...

The Grip On My Heart

Something foreign from what I knew. Conflicting feelings could run so close, merge into each other.   A hand around my heart that squeezes it tight. Holds it’s grip firm. But I can’t say no. Still I know   I should go. Turn and leave this behind. The hand...

Human Experiment: Marc Johnson Debate

“Sally, you go on in one and a half. Focus, girl. You’ve got this,” a woman’s voice flooded into the ear piece of a young lady. She was the kind of attractive lady that would never have to pay for a drink at the club. She had a small pocket sized mirror in the palm of...

Fugitive

Annie stared at her daughter sitting on the floor playing with multicolored Lego’s. The little boy next to her had dirty blonde hair that fell in his face. His eyes matched his mother’s; they were sky blue. Annie looked into the sky blue eyes of the woman named Tori...

The Mirror

Billie sits in front of the mirror. On the page in front of her she sketches the gold gilded frame. There’s the chair she sits on and the window behind her. Her own reflection; fair skin covered in sun-kissed freckles and long white scars. Blue denim coveralls over a...

Footsteps

When I was but a child I cherished her. Any kind word or praising look would light my face up, but there came a day where she packed her things and hugged me good bye, to start her journey. My world became cold and quiet as I began to hate the town that reminded me of...

The Way Out

Pete stood in the driveway outside of his small apartment complex. He tried to steady his breathing, but knew he couldn’t do anything to prevent the oncoming panic attack. His vision blurred as he looked down at the cracked driveway, and back up at the thick pine...

White Column Stage

Her long black trench coat was Amy’s primary line of defense against the late December chill.  She stood frozen on the gum-riddled sidewalk, her hands wrapped around a brown paper coffee cup, tapping its edges.  Tapping had been Amy’s nervous habit since elementary...

Ana

Ana “I feel… good” The words felt hollow, like always, and she winced just a little for letting them out. Ana shivered. The heat hadn’t come on yet, and the size 4 sweater hung loosely from her wrists. A truck was coming, and she resisted the impulse to swerve into...

Second Chance

I looked out the passenger window of my black jeep, the rain trickled down leaving the road a blur behind the little streams that twisted and twirled along the glass. I had a deep pain in my stomach that had been tearing my insides apart for days.  I sighed, pushing...
