It’s How We Float

outside of ourselves
leaving this heavyweight world
~~we are featherweight~~

Galaxy Wheel

I’m always walking with you, -ignoring needed chiropractic adjustments. Never mind that, because all at once the meadow starts ruminating over the fires still smoldering past camel hill. Audaciously, you shoot your finger to the moon as if you’ve discovered a curious thing. I’m taken by the brighter star. Dear God, when will our necks ever align? Still, – every day we’re more honest with ourselves. We tie our tongues, and lace our shoes.

here, inside of us
the whole sky and galaxy, –
two divining lights

Thanks for putting up with my brick cakes, people. Here’s one last brick in the National Poetry Writing Month wall from Mark Strand, for anyone who can stomach just one more poem…“The Great Poet Returns”

Through the Keyhole

     a gander.
   Twelve pound 
     the fix-
  goose is cooked.

my peephole on Thanksgiving.
