Coping

I’ve been thinking a lot. About my friend’s new puppy. And the dark shadow that prevents her from feeling safe by herself. She cuddles this baby thing, gives him a name. Would he have found his mother if not for the trauma that prefaced his arrival in her life? She tells me his name over […]

Ersticken

A cafe in Düsseldorf. It was as busy as it had ever been since the lights turned on and the sweet smell of baked goods and coffee began creeping through the neighborhood. It was lunch time and cold out. All of the cafe’s 22 indoor tables were occupied. In the midst of muttered conversations and […]

Untitled

Over and over I revisit this place, Hungry for an incited feeling. The sharp and degenerate idea Of me, the jester, the invisible man Being, in the five senses granted me, Organic. Cursed just like all that breathe To think, and wonder, and smother Other ideas pointing to something Deeper and darker and more grievous […]

False Peaks

Futures fan to form a panorama Of life as landscape, ambiguous In the finer details, sharper in the broad ones. The peaks are visible, the journey there hides Unknown, behind a thick white fog. Only revealed when confronted head on. Who is to say the peak you pursue Is the destination awaiting you? Truthfully, the […]

One More Love Poem

I am a candle’s slight flame, shivering Against a world that is sometimes lonely Casting dark arms of shadow, quivering In search for meaning. Tendrils creep slowly Against a bath of light.

Happenstance dictates encounters of unique strands Unique to the era we as youth must blossom in Unprecedented and uncharted wholly with us as guinea pigs We have been forced into the role of spectator to every inch of the unfolding Earth Hyper aware to the goings on from the broadest sense to the most intimate […]

Sun Sea

Tears fall, unsolicited. Under this Greek sun, I cast my gaze over green hills and metropolis, quietly giving in to the storm that manifests them. I look out and wonder why. I am a creature interested in rhymes and reasons. This is a world that has neither. My cheeks burn, the tears settle on my […]

Greek Sunday

Like a flower bud meeting the light of dawn Rays of sun unfurl my layers, akin to petals With nourishment that begs for a presence That is total, unequivocal. I sit perched on a hill near Kypseli. To the west I see the source scattered Over a wide swathe of sea, shimmering. Children play football […]

Wilt

sure feet plant themselves upon shifting sands defying urgent notice lent to ears by others, older take root, settle in, spread seeds, tend the land because beauty wilts without proper plans for a garden of aging roses boasts little in value and little in yield possessing a fleeting idea at most of weightlessness; freedom bound […]

Self Talk

How strange, the mind. How it parses life out between chapters in two separate timelines. The living stories and the ones that occur in the grips of sleep. So odd! And then the bridge comes in the form of lucidity. Through a lucid dream, two storylines merge for a moment. And then memory becomes a […]
