Particular Moments

More Stars than There are

Hard to Hold

Lamp Side Table

Some Nights

Lamp Side Table 2

What is there to hold

Unwillingness to claim us.

The Pleading


To death

Of my nonchalant



Of concealing

What hurts

With a shrug,


Saying “there’s more where I come from,”

Shoving the shouts

And tears

Into back pockets

Until they are bulging

At the seams.


Emptiness is eating away

The best of yours truly;

Someone please

Spare your



Bring me back to life

With your calming

Touch and Kindness.
