The Beat

A beat, a beat
This street, this street
A youngster swells
And fire fells
My heart is oft returning
And though I stride
And though I cry

And though I cry

In little homes
On little streets
For little men,
Something burns

Doubting Thomas ~ Caravaggio

i am caught
in the land of do
split between won’t and want
caution and can’t
their hero’s ranting heard
when i was just a bird in nest:

“Teachers don’t always know what they’re talking about. Sometimes they praise students because they’re just happy you showed an interest. It doesn’t mean you’re good.”

a dinner table death
my heart forever vexed



innate and


words, i am haunted

body to be body to hold
vessel of waste and wonder
i watch you wrinkle and move
conforming after a stretch



and thunder
never another shell
this i in skin
my body sings

this i this house this home
distended in mending a soul

body, we are
