Write about Tragedy:

About sickness

about wars, about bullets

about what is broken

what was lost

what struggles

what (Who) is fallen

and laws.


Write about summer:

About breaths


spaces within

the deck that’s held

You, in other seasons,

the Other

where you’re moving.

Remember.  Consider.  Dream

of years to come.


Write about Definition:

Forget vocation

become the ovation

embracing liminal space

then step



Write about Wonder and Beauty:

About geese seen flying

returning, against

a sunrise

rising, against




and attraction

until the day

is redefined

by constellations

of freckles, each one

a mystery, a question

unanswered, a potential

that makes you forget

the laws


pasts or futures.


Write about:

What it means

to be alive.
