DREAMS IN RED

DETERGENT

NEVER BELITTLE THIS
BODY AS A WINTER
AS SILENT GREY

ALWAYS REVEL IN ITS
CONSTANT STREAM

FLOODED
FELT LIKE 

AN INTERNATIONAL
EVENT IN ANOTHER COUNTRY
FRIGHTENED FROM A
DISTANCE
A LONGER AND
LONGER MEMORY
OF A SUMMER
NIGHT

ARRIVE AS A FRIEND
WHETHER PATIENT OR
ASSURED

A MIRACLE THE LIPS

I DREAMT OF HERDS

THEN A BACK
ARCHING IN FRONT
OF ME
THEN,
A MULTITUDE WAS ANGLING
TOWARDS THE BEACH
TO WATCH THE WHALES
BEACH THEMSELVES
THEN BE RESTORED
“WHAT WAVES?”
THEY SAID
AS THE ORCAS SPUTTERED
THEIR EYES GROWING
DARK AS THE OCEAN
FLOOR
AND THEN BLANKNESS
MY FRIENDS GAZING
NO PAUSE
NO BREATH
WITH THEM I TRACED
AND SHOUTED A PATH
BACK
PADDED OUR CLOTHES
PLUSSED OUR BANK
ACCOUNTS
AND DISPERSED FOR
THE ALLEYS
AS MORE AND MORE
PARENTS DROPPED US
OFF AT SCHOOL
THE ADMINISTRATION
OFFERING THEIR THOUGHTS
LATE IN THE
AM

WHAT, LOVE
A PEACH THAT
SINKS YOUR TEETH

LOOKING FOR YOUR VOID
I BROKE SHOULDER BLADE
TO FIT

MARKED UP EVERY
FIGURE TO
SPIN AND SPIN

WHAT, LOITER
IN YOUR PARKING LOT
DENTED SPINDLY WEEDS

I COULD BURY MYSELF IN ANOTHER
OR KNOW THE STRENGTH OF MY OTHER

ALIVE IN MY ONENESS
AWAKE AND REDRESS

EACH COLORED MORNING
ABSOLUTELY

IT’S ALRIGHT
IF THE INFATUATIONS
SEEM ENDLESS

BECAUSE
WHY NOT

THERE ARE MANY
ON WHICH
TO DWELL ENDLESS

A SIMPLE VISIT, OR
A PARK BENCH
ON A LENGTHY STAIR CASE

woosh wum (Ida)

Ida levels the long black barrel ahead
a deer that wrestles the loud forest floor

population control

Ida breathes bold smoke into the flightless
brown and white and red and smothered clearing

those who live and who know

Ida bends the recent/distant mem’ry
into steel that separates the old skin

like one that peels apples

Ida slaps their body onto the bone
not reckless but knowing the due process

the lurch that is new soul
