20-09-10 – Your Judge

dive in deeper and
turn cheek

if hurt dictates
you must,

but please do it in a
way that’ll spare
my prideful
rib..

its bruised
blush,

in blind times we’ve
all receded in
disgust,

to disarming reaches,
and the barbed
hands of
touch,

++++

but it’s your skin to
burn, it’s your
heart..

your rules-
you’re judge.

..the only judge worth trust.

..the north star lit in each of us.

2020-09-04 – Arms Around the Knees

dread’s nothing but
a teardrop,

wedged between
bruised lens
and sight

and twilight’s my
star-show,

cast on dark screen between
sky and whatever the
heart can stand
to fight

head’s nothing but
a doorstop

ever wedged between,
preventing the
big slam,

and if heart’s too
bushed to
fight,

++++

i’ll hold her thru
the
night,
