he is a coward

August 27, 2007

he once stopped by
and promised to resolve
my shattered bones.

he dried my tears,
placed a candle in my heart,
but not a flame.

he proclaimed,
I will never abandon you.
then he left.

he left to have sex
with violence – like John Wayne
slapping a woman.

although he showed up,
he never returned.
again and again.

Bone grit
explodes into
a thousand ripples,

welcoming home
her borrowed
physicality.

those billowy clouds
with voluptuous
highlights
set against blue sky

float on their way
to commit raucous
rack
and ruin

he is a coward

September 18, 2006

he once stopped by
and promised to resolve
my shattered bones.

he dried my tears,
placed a candle in my heart,
but not a flame.

he proclaimed,
I will never abandon you.
then he left.

he left to have sex
with violence – like John Wayne
slapping a woman.

although he showed up again,
he never returned.
he is not a builder.
