I am Christmas Morning

I sign another line.  This time, I do not think about the hoops and swirls and dots. I don’t stop to break a stroke. My hand is stable and my eyes are dry. I flip the paper. I sign another line… …It was a long time ago.  When I was young, younger than you are […]

The Big Win

There were two men.  One was a good man who acted in malicious ways. The other was a bad man who wore the mask of a good one.  I loved them both.  I was deceived by both. One tricked me with a lie.  The other made me out for a fool.  Both were absorbed with […]

Hey Big Spoon

Hey Big Spoon, I want you to know that I would be your Little Spoon.  I would kiss your hands, your cheaks and your nose.  I would kiss each eye, forevermore.  And hey Big Spoon, I know you have things to do.  Agendas and plans and places to conquer.  Titles and people.  Roles and ideas. […]

I Love All Over

I am a rapt lover.  Wrapped in love.  I love all over. I am stagnant in a fugitive moment.  Flashing touch.  Fleeting and focused.  I love all over. Twisted.  Tangled.  Transfixed on emotion.  Every word.  Every breath.  I am attached and devoted.  I love all over.  I adore and he desires.  I am high and […]

Time Talks

Time became an invariably dense object that I could not manipulate. I walked backwards. I thought Time would follow. I forged ahead. Time marched in place and then laughed at my attempt. Time says, “Buy a canvas. Cover it with everything you think I am.” I reply, “Haven’t I already?” Time answers, “no.” I do […]

This Child Can Scream

“This child can scream,”  I think to myself. I can barely stand his shrieks.  I wait a few minutes before glaring at his mother.  While these seconds pass, thoughts grow within me;  I can go places that she cannot go.  I can sleep when I am tired or stay up all night if I want […]

I Love Hard

I love. Hard. I love often. I am surprised, though, that I am loved so well by so many. The many that love me do not receive my love in return. I only love the unloveable. I often wonder if these unloved things will be at my funeral. It is love that will kill me […]

Mobile Dating Part Two

I surveyed several single male friends that use online dating sites and asked, “What are you tired of seeing on women’s profiles?”  The results were alarming.  Warning ladies…  Men know that you don’t ride horses in real life.  They are on to us.  They may not know how or where we find the horses to […]
