the sound of breath

a bellows
ignites the iron-flame
of yesterday
and bathes
the room in
pumpkin light

cinders fall like
gnats, who lost breath
and returned to the dirt

a wheel turns and needs to
stop, so eyes can travel
to dreamland

I travel through dark houses
sampling them like
a bite of various fruits

I crawl towards a wall
and feel my fingertips
losing feeling

when my snakeskin
peels off
I'll be a weathervane
pointed to the west

Here's another song by my band, which is now known as Blue Variable:

When Temperaments Get Tempestuous

The thread

a samurai sword/
cuts silence like
thin bamboo
split by, the sharpened
steel-toe kick
of the west

before execution
a man spit in the face
of a would-be undertaker
and escaped
due to a witty girl
who saw the advantage
of Ronin blades
against an oppressive edge

keep smiling
dumpling lady

while a ruckus
rages in the tea house
a hidden samurai
explains to idiots outside
'how to conduct oneself'
'in an appropriate manner'

before tea spills
and blood

he might help
Kitty Genovese
and reverse the wheels
of time, the samurai outside

honor, a medal of
worth, while conflicts
inside are dealt with
violence, a hasty way
to create silence

he gathers coins back
from the governor
who oppressed the land, and drained
the people of water
and rice

Vagrant Story
threatened their captors
and dodged crows
with skilled acrobatics

once the wage is sealed
with their savior
an innocent soul
is protected

is cut

Hemingway in Reverse


she used ice as a sheet for her bed

when the ground gets
cold and trees are static
wings of air move with magnetic force
a breeze through the U curvature of a bridge's bottom

the cabin is empty now, doors are broken and the
windows are a thin glass like paper

old wood, stained by rain, snow, bats in the ceiling

inside a broken piano, strings detune by cold fingers

frozen smoke billows to a wispy sky
a nomad retreats, a prince from the east falls

the sun is a satellite is a moon is a star
a plant grows towards warmth, roots spread out
the snow, a cold shroud, surprisingly bright

reflection eternal
left down winter lane
the space between two worlds
