Theosis


Theosis - An Easter Experience 


My hands shadow the world
in their movement before the light.
The light, my hands, and the blocked
light are connected, like the plastic
Easter eggs filled with chocolate.

God on a cross. God dead.
God in the garden, weaken
by the returning life. Jesus

Cool Being An Unstable Condition

Cool Being An Unstable Condition
on the commute home

The woman, budding young in her kelly green,
purple and yellow striped tights, accessorized
by light pink kakis, grimaces in deep silence

from her day. Perched up on the moving
bus, she waits for her stop. She pulls the cord.

Be happy

Here is a riddle.

Ask most people what they want out of life and what do they answer? Happiness!
It’s common both in the amount of times you hear it and in how mundane the answer is, like some beauty pageant contestant claiming holding hands will bring universal utopia. We know…

Commercial White Water Rafting



Commercial White Water Rafting

Rather than pouting, the pair pointed upward
in a gaze, daring the gathered around them
to see the bearings of the universe in the fight
on one lone eagle gliding in the blue of dispersed
light. On their feet, the gesture of the two, leads
the others to the untouchable… Read full post »

The Pain in my Thoughts and Thighs


 The Pain in my Thoughts and Thighs 

I start my morning with a cliché,
a lukewarm one at that. Walking
on ice, my reality.Trending on ice
that was once was snow, but tires
and time turned into a sheet of a mixture
white and black ice, another overused
metaphor of good and bad. So, here

Not Another Telemarketer


















Dime Day Doubts

When the history of world is written in blank verse,
