“As I Write …”


As I write


…my mother sips coffee

on a porch

overlooking heaven’s gardens…


….while my lips mouth words without my intent…


…my father spins yarns of candle smoke

into brilliant diamond terrains…


…and word-worlds move inside my spirit like aches…

…this flesh, first loosens …then evaporates…

….while swirls of wind build quiet, inside my chest….
