For Olivia and our AWOL dreams:

Sanctimonious sleep

swat mosquito minutes

While seconds drip

Daymares vex

REM not

Torpor tortures

Fatigue’s final falter

Alarms tattle

Cornea corona

Noon fireflies

Cinder snow

Weiss webs

Captive slug trails

Dancing ants

Twilight tiaras

Opaque omens

Black hole avarice

I warp into fetal labyrinth

curse each centipede inch

“And he never had the sense of home so much as when he felt that he was going there.  

It was only when he got there that his homelessness began.”

Thomas Wolfe, You Can’t Go Home Again

 

I don’t exist here

not in dust

nor echoes

UR stucco heart jagged

gate fixed

Yet perdition leaks in

w/mourning doves’ censure

effacing refuge

Inconveniences

 

My blindness inconveniences

a haboob intercepts noon

I cede chauffeur duty

Trip on innuendo

Prod w/contorted cane

that lacks Tiffany pearl

Last shovelful of dirt
