Their Way

sea clef
egrets in hot pursuit

the pilloried moans beget a slow wind


crowd murmurs surround
PISO MOJADO in triplicate birth
seeds no wandering melon 

to patch it or reply
the medley of desert songs

pangs of wishful sinking


a bounding pre-sense
grounds melodic transfer 
regrets too few to many

its way the longing
bereft of remaining heat 

chills the breezy stockade faces 


wet floor mirth dreams
filled the hanging eyes
implicated in the rumor

wired dawnings 
darken solarium dreams
white wings

too few chased to many regrets


Weighting Light

gossamer flight incumbents
lighten their mural panacea fling
before the sunset trail darkens

noon apparitions feeding time
its survival capsules bare nutrients

for the caustic daring the shadow
an eclipse worthy of its own delay


reptilian forecast dreams 
braille narratives untongued 

or touched 
sunlight clings tightly to a shadow

apparition themes fail sharp white
stinging the blood surface breeze

a spectrum slowly moves array home


weight returns an encumbrance
to the tightened cling of rail fabric
overboard terrors no dry-dock

the sting of sight’s curling smell 
retracted ethereal commentaries
sidebars glimmer shifting skin

to favor tongues of the nightly bound


Wintering Discontent

neon diphthong plasma templar
formal cats below the surfeit
feral entrails notwithstanding
lissome girder reflux passage 
rendered sterile output settlers 
reprimand enabling dilettantes 
to discover fuselage counters 
at subnormal rumination levels 
implosion bricks at the surface 
engine declensions lost track 
searching for precision nouns
verbing the action thrillers past 
a nonchalant detection wiper 
patterning the nattering chorus
carpal subtonal diffusion clings
to brooding ties as a bar strategy 
blinking cocktails moon decay 
flattens prospectors sorting pyrite
left to gravel pans a gavel’s heft
normal though proclaiming clarity 
doldrums shelled beyond horizon 
the plural intentions of steamboat 
philosophies delay the motorcade’s 
long panegyric wrenching modality 
conflicts nodal aperture wagons 
moving all the alabaster patrons 
past their due time spent scuttling 
prey to python intermission dens 
pitted against new modular scales
while forking tongues greet scams
the travel hefts the menu in delay 
to fronton circuits lobed enough 
to mind the stored matter’s energy 
from one refreshed cliche another
renewal less deadened with green 
clatter horns envy yowling breakage 
bumps grumbling through the night
a horror to scents around leaflets
burgeoning scaffold patterns at sea
calypso veritas windings portrayed
throughout the garbanzo vernacular
no global warning of the slither word
coming through the coping portal
adamantine strictures running slope
embargoes where the weary hatchet 
fled the cargo fleet stumbling numbly
cultivates ellipsis gardens for frosting
ardent legends seek urban homes
to hold neatly-fashioned splashes
the core warren where tables multiply 
heliocentric renditions of deficit dinners 
octagonal root suppliers ratify hutches
floating packets wine gap wrapping
concealed hunches from the vesicle 
parting the wall crunches to bevel
crossed haunches launching a stir
among the stenches of jostled fabric
stirring residual declamation scars
dominion-ready apertures disregard
cuspidor removal tantrums growing
sapient ventilation rockers unpacked
belongings under water removal hoses
racked for any fuselage interpretation
mustered under piquant uplift shears
refractory lighting no custard matter
flustered right where the eminent pall
cast off thousands formerly regarded
as dispensation for adders puffing 
moccasin tablets to spoon addicts
dripping leather-veined catacombs
brachiating a  fractured melody loom
spinning cartilage mimicry casings
wherever stolen luminaries hide gold
