i spin the can
of mixed nuts

a
greasy
kaleidoscope

with no cashews
to be found

only jordans,
filberts, and peas

tumbling
in my disdain

they are all
that remain

of the feast

dying for Chrtistmas

The tree we cut
and carried
into our home

the one
we shackled
then
trimmed

sang to
then
toasted

now lays
in the gutter

her
hooks
and tinsel
riffling on the wind

November 29, 2008

I spin the can
of mixed nuts
peering into its greasy
kaleidoscope –

not a cashew
to be found

only jordans,
filberts, and peas
tumbling
in my disdain.

They are all
that remain

of the feast.

small mansion
two warm voices
thanksgiving

dirt hut
two warm voices

all eyes on the sky
this moon is a disco moon
campfires dance

one
grieving mother

diminishes
the multitude of smiles

the woman
who decides
to bear
no children

bears love
to all humanity

be the embracer

Love I

love is a choice
do not wait for one’s embrace
be the embracer
