In a city of visitors
absent its usual power suits
and Starbucks hands,
an ordinary day
lingers on.

from the plains outside
of Oklahoma City
made from everyday life’s one-night stand.

Excerpt: Weathered Fragments, Weathered Souls

when you are naked,

when you are clothed.

Excerpt: Weathered Fragments, Weathered Souls

From “Mud”

Her hand did not rise
to point at the pure cup,
but to the one soiled on the outside,

because she trusted not
what seemed to be clean and perfect,

Excerpt from “Dust”

I don’t know where
these pieces fit,
or if they are even mine,
but I feel they are,
whether they are all with me,
clinging to my body
or still behind in that box
that remains unopened in the corner
marked kitchen goods.

Excerpt – Medusa – The Lost Daughter

From “The Prophecy”

Like the sun retreats in the west each night,
and as sure as the day will draw to an
end each evening, a mortal’s life hastens
to end in an uncertain amount of
hours, days and years.
