if fruit could think...

someday i will catch in your mouth
after years of ignoring me
a perfect pinch of ripeness
sliding down your throat
toward intentions of better eating

and think!

if only i could hold on a little longer
could catch hold of vocal chords
lodge forever in your
snow white embrace

wrapped like a present

i dreamt
that you fell
off the earth watched
you fall graffic cartoonish
fake atmosphere
closing around your shape
your heft enveloped
a fat cloud folding
in gone! wrapped
like a present into a gone
gone place way out
there not here
and I thanked god

or was it that i let you go?
could finally see the crevice
of time five years ago
when your fleshy compacting
carbon first fell out
of my life
could finally say
goodbye like the falling
was a gift

Drill—breaking ground in
two, a surly man in jeans
rides high on metal.

hatelove, a tanka

i hate i love you
saying i love you i hate
making i love you
fall and fall and crash into
your face - dead repetition
