Literature
Summer in a New Apartment
morning fades
into early afternoon
you're asleep
in the next room
one hand folded over,
fingers touching
the inside
of your hidden palm
somewhere
a voice laughs
spilling life into
the restless sun
the flowers
that your mother gave me
wilting on the corner table

Literature
Morning After
small
rustle in the mid-hour
she moves
in steady comfort
bare shoulder to
restless sun

Literature
Absence
he left again
in the early morning
sunlight touches
silver through
the heavy blinds
i clean the dishes from
the kitchen table
new shadows settle
restless bruises against
the curve of my hand

Literature
Written While Leaving
summer grass folded
like faded paper
under the heavy frost
your cat sitting
at the window
watching the winter birds
cold water
brushes
the back of my hand
slowly like
a thought turning
it begins to rain
:iconPelicanDeath:PelicanDeath

Literature
Center
saturday watches
your heavy sleep
i live alone in
the thought
of you
your breath
moves like a river
cold rain
on the window
gathers like doubt
and falls away
:iconPelicanDeath:PelicanDeath
:iconpelicandeath:PelicanDeath 4 1
Literature
Weekend Alone
an empty morning
your pillow
how you left it
curled under
on the edge
i remind myself
to think of you
in the new silence
the cat watching
with the small
movements
of a ghost
:iconPelicanDeath:PelicanDeath
:iconpelicandeath:PelicanDeath 5 2
Literature
Walking in the Woods
together
we move through
the tall pines
he tells me
of the bad days
his words reaching
through the sounds
of an early autumn
there is a need here
in the pale shadows
the new morning
rots like an open fruit
:iconPelicanDeath:PelicanDeath
:iconpelicandeath:PelicanDeath 4 5
Literature
Here Again
morning begins
to soften
outside
i wait for you
cold hands
light gathering
with the dust
of the growing hours
there is nothing in me
that is not already soft
and brittle
feel the leaves slip
on the pavement
touching new words with
a covered breath

Literature
Standing on a Balcony
midnight buries
a half moon
below her
the sidewalk seems
to shimmer in
the dim light
voices meet
hand to
awkward hand
she hesitates
lingering to watch
the snow fall
:iconPelicanDeath:PelicanDeath
:iconpelicandeath:PelicanDeath 6 2
Literature
Cleaning Up After Sympathy
you left
a little after
lunch today
sunlight touches
inside the palm
of an empty cup
i carry
your weight into
the next room
thinking of the things
that i should have said

Literature
Saturday Morning
and i wake
to the thought
of you
a new morning
the rain outside
begins again
voice like an open hand

Literature
No Name #1
july again
i've forgotten
the way a warm hand
feels against
the back of my neck
summer
speaks with
a waning breath
the last hour
goes by
slowly
:iconPelicanDeath:PelicanDeath
:iconpelicandeath:PelicanDeath 5 3
Literature
Passing Time
he writes
of the sun shifting
through the narrow grass
the curve of her body
moving with the sound
of a sigh
a cold rain gathers
bringing night
to the waking room
the pale shadows
on the table
hold the movement
of his empty hand
:iconPelicanDeath:PelicanDeath
:iconpelicandeath:PelicanDeath 9 2
Literature
New Apartment
the windows open
to the sound of rain
i hear your voice echo
in the other room
morning begins
with a muted fire
:iconPelicanDeath:PelicanDeath
:iconpelicandeath:PelicanDeath 3 3
Literature
Mirror
i still try
to forget
your name
sometimes
leaves scatter
in the waking night
and wait
for the summer
rain to die
:iconPelicanDeath:PelicanDeath
:iconpelicandeath:PelicanDeath 6 5
Literature
Visiting Hours
rain again tonight.
light scatters
on the  pavement
like glass
i remember
the broad
curve of the river
keeping time
with the windows
of the train
i watched you
watch the water pass,
one palm curled
around the shadow
of your wrist
i was waiting then, too
