what to give

give me your phrases

i will show you three lines

give me your honesty

i will name your soul’s beauty

give me a thread of real time

i will cherish your generosity

give me the trick of youthful folly

i will bury it with honor and roses

give me the shadow of your return

 i will share fragility and what remains to break

give me bones , scraps from your table

i will lick the marrow, grateful for the taste

give me this, without unnecessary tears

i will wipe you from my eyes

give me inclusion in this city of dreams

i will reflect you in a bank of mirrors

give me a shallow pool of veils

i will hide but never drown

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
