Submissions via e-mail:




At the beginning believed                                                
home. A scrutiny beneath
revealed cracking,
molten wood 
The still eyes of the feral
returned, throwing live
& all my prates
ably discovered by you
from inside the glass rack. 
Summer had long eloped
but the floor was still

On the road now
neighboring white snow,
fully sated



Arrivals are always hazy,morning mist.  

Patience takes a beating

like the hapless child on pavement,

waiting for boiled rice.  

Arrivals are seldom, like

the flower that blooms once in

every fourteen years. 

But expectations have some

irresistible aroma, you are drawn to, 

like a possessed soul. 

The aroma keeps you travel

in the barren, harvested field

in a melancholic, winter evening. 


Tectonic Shift

Dance rhythms reverberated
from below the earth

Tectonic plates are shifting 
enlarged gaps  

In the middle of a dark shift 
the dancer is busy, performing

When did you last show up?
Memorabilia failed to answer

Sure the shows on, in another part
of the world, the shift has no effect

Im following the dancer here
Eternally, by the side of the ocean
