Curtain Fall Oak

       Limbs rise
     to open palm
         leaves.

   The sinister wrist,
shattered then broken,
     never touches
         ground.

Gold curtain heavens
    overhead tempt
  like beauty's shade
  behind translucent
          blinds.

Angler


Seize strains
  of sun sweetly
 falling string.

Dive deep
  with temptation
 impaled
  rusty hook.

I've cast deep
   into blue.

Impression dilates
in concentric spheres.

The fatal moment
  when mouths close.

  My stick bends
 to the sad weight
  depths hold dear.

               In the clear,
                  twist tail,
                gasp on thin air--
                                            find breath
                                            in a bucket.

         Your vanquished eyes
               never close.

Tares

We bend to abstruse meandering but
  poets sup on wishes to be written.

      We shun the inexorable end,
 while poets sing want's incantation.

     Essence true unthinkable
         with so much plastic
                   within
             this hunger for
      the captivating twilight
                of covered
                  mirrors.
