Leherin Detektivin

All those years ago she said to get indoors
Ajax Mountain I thought this was kind
one of the five or six times she spoke directly
to me outside the sign draping the wreaths
K.T. younger years are younger dreams?  Are
older years older dreams or is it all dreaming
until the wake-up call inspiring exploration
lovely appearances becoming regime nightly
lonely arrogance repeating ignoring repeating
brash brightly elevated giant slalom afternoons

Heavy Hands Amok

Thick with flurry of documentation
called into office (secretly wondering
don't we all work for the State
employees of the people amok
squeezing massage beyond Swedish
making it all up for the big p
Power feel it five fingered heavy
little ideas off-track overturning barrels
barriers tossing words around
ropes bringing in the little calf
hot iron ready straight from the fire

Promise Me Protect

It would be some place with no name
I don't mean Nome but somewhere
by then it would be considered urban
not Geneva or Zurich or even Paris
I was thinking Fairbanks just for the sound
checking up on my upper arms are they attached

What I think and what is here never matches
that's how much of a journey it is when
searching the reaches all white and sandy
edges grinding on edges imperceptibly
they've graduated from saying mom
It's modern it's what they will say about me
wasn't that ever my focus--

That's when questions will be silent at last!
They'll say that person died while living
with heads still firmly attached turning this way
rolling that shirt collars comfortable clean
Branches leaves above rain dripping down
sun promising more than what is all around

Green With Black

Here lies Susan K.

there a day's work (young minds
ins and outs of English)
there the owing Bohemian
owning pieces of nothing

Dead one earthy melting autumn day
grey clouds forming a  pink row
their application rated improbable
synthesis only a hunch
spies becoming bored analyzing
this idea still a little out of place
outside the ordinary green with black

Her mundane appearance baffling
even to herself Susan K. is dead
nearly half of the time lava didn't
stop flowing crackling pooling
just eight miles from the stairs
the shanty across from starry surf
large seeds detailing the reaches

Less And Less

Thunder and lightning
hunched bunched flashes
rumblings night real rain
changed long ago nature
in my face glimpsing

Remnants Of

A sluggish river
legs tired climbing down
sweet waters Honeyman
Cleawox Lake warmest
dreams dripping left
tucked under daytime drip drop
flip flap nearly an island
behind clocks fish hide
beneath habits Gali Dali
really sir strong portrait

Danielson Blah Blah

She spoke but I thought of the lava
thick as a house now rolling
fiery black glacier ignoring asphalt
anything the landscape its outer space
quick to pool in places
phone still announcing
messages from the dark
Beach Road surf spray hanging
seven Cs crashing cashing in
