this yoke of words
and the need to put names
to bird songs …
bliss is a small child
and time does her bidding

  for months
I go without writing …
this urge
to become a leaf
rising with the wind

and cleavages –
I check
the highs and lows
of the social pages

in my picture
the moon is always full
a little foxing
in the corner by the window
where sea breezes blow in

  I undo
my shoelaces
and stand barefoot –
the stories
in each blade of grass

space Kala Ramesh - India
spacer brush

    bequeathed to me
his Marine Corps saber
cuts through illusion:
here is life and here is death
and we, but blades between
