Via Dolorosa

The ribs of our garage door
form crosses behind us.

We lose sight
of where we were going.

My Pregnant Mother

Clutter is her geis.
(She often dreams of seeding a cloud.)

“Just think what
ancient pollution
would rain down
to poison their frogs.”

She often dreams,
but ressentiment is not her thing.

She just wants to feel the rain,
to collect the frogs.

In Medias Res

Mom calls herself the Indefinite Dyad
and rests in his bosom.

The Aggregate of Our Wisdom

it’s close
inside a debris hut
