Paper Decisions

With no choice -- but all
these choices -- I wonder who
gets to write my will?


I hurt my pelvis
when your bones tried to wriggle
their way inside me.

There was despair etched
on her limbs, salt harvested
under a full moon.

Dread Nothing Because

I've traveled around.
Lazy men flush winters in
single serve toilets.

Recipe For Cake

Step 1: Make a Decision
Don't ask whether or
not you want to eat it, just
get ready, do it.

Step 2: Gather What You Need
Measure out the hurt,
see that it's too much, decide
to go for it still.

Step 3: Erase Your Memory
Remember that hurt
is not an ingredient
in cake, then "forget."

Step 4: "Enjoy"

So -- great, now you can
have your cake and eat it too.
But it isn't cake.

As autumn peels skirts,
nipples form on my sadness,
tongues choke stirred embers.

While Taking The Building Apart

The concrete crumbles,
reveals steal framing and a
trained set of nerves, veins.

A Society With Only Two Classes

There's me and there's my
camera man. He films me.
I do not film him.

out of the courting stage

I settled for it,
it didn't settle for me:
still the judge applauds.

Universal Health Coverage

The hospital wing
spirals out the lobby, sinks,
flaps back down our tubes.

In all directions
patients are flying, wheel chairs
falling from the sky.

From a distance, the
sick are like balloons, held to
earth by long IVs.

The hospital floats
away, collapses in the
ocean and chokes fish.

The tide rushes in,
tossing pieces of people
and things to the sand.

Now, ambulances
drive emergency patients
straight into the sea.
