in the shadows of waning light
two senescent lovers lie / between sheets of waning light. the moon spins the dis·s·ever·ing tale / of their relentless nothingness. / apathetic eyes beseech the dark / f…

A Lone Traveler

A solitary spirit
Effeminate in form

Asphalting miles of memories
Treading many a storm:

Intellectual roads
Laid with diamonds and dust

Carnal paths
Laced with rubies and lust

Spiritual trails

A Wrinkle in Time
No longer does she clad herself / In days of faded dye, Patterned fabrics of yesterdays / Unravel threaded whys Teen embroidered dawns / Intricately woven into dusks Garments of adolescence hang / In closets of nascent lust Seams of …
Molecules of Moments ... A Poetry in Pieces
Day Tresses of ivory tease the air as / soliloquies of song woo whimsical winds / Moments mold into statues of light while / waxing crystals of cream take flight / / A traveler once / I toured your turbulent terrain / donni…
