where she went

Your uniform world
a measured lattice
simple and elementary
until it breaks up
against primordial chaos
that bursts through.

Great swells and waves
crash
each and every block
heaved up and dropped
flat solid squares spreading apart
on molten turmoil
and yesterday’s certainty
as you wonder all the while
where you are
and where she went.

hold back nothing

Hold back nothing
ambiguously
each word
falling from you
a drop of mist
in the middle of
a downpour.

tomorrow

Tomorrow
a new word will arrive
packaged carefully
with an exotic stamp
pasted
in the upper right-hand corner.

slippery

Holding still
and watching words
drift past me
each one wrong
and worse
slippery.
