Subtle Switches


subtle switches
west bearing witches
follow night follow night

cast the net wide
you unsewn tatters of
most beckoning costume

drink well this well
deep as a desert tree
spy the the owl by one eye
invisible dreams
tonight's success
tomorrow's reprieve

are you sought enough to taste?
to suit
to need

hidden radios glow forbidden breath
under the door
stations identify the roaming hoards
burning, consuming, hunting
another day's dusk

old monsters freshly released
from the subconscious, sub-regilith
dear earth's ID

cash your accounts now
bake your bread
keep the teeth in your mouth
in your head

eye to crack
struggle to breathe quiet
and wait

the breakers are breaking
thrown hard over
by the overload

the lines are coming down
country eating town
eating at the concentrations of old power
embers buried deep in the ash

so strange days upon us again

old legends before sin

we to burn again

In A Strict Sense


...I secretly believe God lets people into heaven based on how they use punctuation!

Here It Comes


the peanuts drop to concrete
the crowd hushes and roars complete
the stance of home, of each base about the diamond

turn, arms raised, pointing, staring

from outside
from left field
from the back screaming

it is here
