seedling why without
dirt can you grow,
deep stuckshot inside
me,
and with my frost fever and curled toes
i ask why you seedling chose
me.

Literature
nobody
I should go walking
in the rain
by the river,
Ain't nobody going to see me fall in.
I should go screaming
through the forest
forearms bloodied.
Ain't nobody going to know where I been.
I should go falling
through the floorboards
into silence.
You will never have known I'd been there.
I should go jumping
off the corner
of the rooftop.
Smile on my face, wind blowing hair.
Oh, nobody going to know that I was there.
Oh, nobody going to see me fall in.
Oh, nobody going to know where I been.

poetiks
maybe that is our plight,
(and our is ours, you and I.
Reader, Writer.)
I keep all inside 'til it spills out,
inkblot over pages, blood spatters on canvas
you read, take deep draughts of poetiks,
and wait for me to bleed some more.

i ... am not a polaroid
i, mona tuck, am not a polaroid
life does not paint white squares around me and my turquoise-faded skies
i am not a paled tan figure, ambiguous in muted colour
neither am i a photograph
in a shoebox left upstairs for twenty-six years
but some day that is all i will be.

Literature
illimitable force pulsing
unimaginable beloved of leaping forks of the sun,
lightning, says he, and a moment is spent wondering where the sun hides her forks
there is an inexplicable purple hue to the sky tonight
low rumbles run along the corridors of clouds, sending shivers where they crash, hammering
the fear, love in my chest
(where all fear is kept)
and a crack, the fork has lept
from the ground to the sky, or vice versa (I cannot tell, bright is my eyes, and dark)
closer, closer, all shrieks by (time,
life, burnt smell of pavement) wet pools around my feet
this-
illimitable force pulsing, tearing
at me
leaves
skid, I hold my breath
in the breath of all breaths
storm

Literature
are you ?
-what?
she looks at me like I am crazy, like I shake a trembling madness in my mind. I do not repeat the question, she deigns not to answer, pretends I never asked
the man at the counter who has been to the bottom of every bottle just smiles, his eyes distantly focused. no, he says magnaminously, well I don't know, who would lie intentionally? my friends, no, never.
-do I get tired of lying? he runs a palsied hand through a ragged mop of hair, not nervous, thinking. do I? sometimes, but there-
a pause, he has a half smile edged with a downward droop.
-there is always a way around the tedium.
-yes, yes, yes, she gasps, i am sorry sorry i didn't mean to lie, but i did, and it is so easy to redefine- her face explodes and i didn't mean to make it so.
no, not tired of lying here, not yet.

Literature
city night
I
She stands, and her feet make little pads on the concrete as she moves to the light switch, sashaying to her own rythmic cadence, and for a moment the birdlike bones are covered with a natural grace that surprises my heart.
She crosses back, now dimly lit by the dull light coming in from the broken window, and levels an acid gaze on me. No bird here, she’s trying to say.
I haven’t the heart to say anything, and she turns away before reaching for a pack of slender cigarettes. Marlboro Lites. Meets my look again and nearly says something, but instead lifts her half-covered shoulder with resignation. Lights up. A few breaths, and she regains enough composure to smile ever so slightly, her lips parting to let forth rivulets of ghost-breath.
II
Karon is twenty-one and has aged negative twelve years since I last saw her. She’s a waif now, eaten inside out by acid that runs through her veins (but God she loves it). She sleeps with her dealer to ensure a better deal. She lies

I have indeed found that doubting your own work is a very good way to improve it.
