Collaboration #2 / 2014



Twenty-five, twenty-six, twenty-seven, twen…

Beyond branches, behind clouds,
the amount of stars escapes me again.

Their fine illustrious points
dots across the dark blue atmosphere.

Your voice, its familiarity–
the topic at hand–
upsets my attempt to finagle

focus away from our chemistry
gone awry.

You see, Aileen, enumerating stars
helps numb aches
that escalate with each word
you say.

twenty-eight, twenty-nine, thirty…

glimmers of light

Dot to Dot to Limb

in the unpruned snarl
of an old man’s orchard
numbers number pieces
foggy in an old man’s eyes

hidden beyond the haze –
the memory of 5
knowledge of 7 and 2
mystery of 1 minus 9

why 11 has pushed 12
out of the picture
why the tree is unpruned
why no one ever asks

what’s on the reverse
of the numbered – beyond

paint by numbers

your heart
after I broke it
evening sky
the way dreams fit
winter wind
this time i’ll choose
the colours

puzzle of light
maze of wood
forever light seeker

our lineage
is traced

in enumerated shades

of a burgeoning
greenhouse grey
