Like Branches Against Storms

Folded arms
Like branches
Against storms
Or protection
From harm

She has skin
Built of yarn
She is my sleep
She is my alarm

The Next Book

Lately I’ve been working hard to assemble a group of artists to help me create & write the most amazing book that I can. My next project will hopefully blow the last one out of the water. I’m looking forward to it. I hope you guys are, too.

Proximity

forpoetry:

to many
a home

is a place
children

measure the
height of
walls with
themselves

to many
a gun

is a tool
used to

measure the
distance
of their
hatred

to me
measuring has

become another
tool man
has been
abusing

You Saw My Raft

forpoetry:

it’s an ocean
that you
ballooned from
when i needed
relief

in every way
you viewed
my presence as
a blessing

before you

hills saw me
and plateaued

boats met me
and sank

doors heard me
coming and slammed shut

but you saw
my raft
and sprouted
from the sea

right under me

On A Monday

forpoetry:

sometimes
i think about
how you
taste like the
feelings
i get when i
realize i can
sleep in
on a Monday

Holding Us

forpoetry:

today was meant
for spring
cleaning

it would have
begun with
the coffee table

usually feet
from a
couch

and seconds
from a tv

but moments
after you entered
this room

it went from

holding books
&
holding cups
&
holding remotes
to
holding us

how dare
a sin feel
this way

Out To Sea

forpoetry:

some days
im barely staying
afloat

and the sighs
from your
dissappointment

push me
further and
further
out to sea
