NaPoWriMo #6
small human, they say
like it's something to be astonished about, something unusual
when they find me on top of an office chair, wheels unlocked
(a skill perfected years ago, really nothing to worry about, shoes on the floor)
or that time I climbed through a small window at work just to see if I could
(I could, with the ever faithfull help of a chair)
much to the amusement of my colleage
(no, I didn't tell my boss. I wonder if she heard anyway)
small human, a friend says
and hooks unto my hand as I lead the way through the crowds
(I always find my way through, there's always room for me)
or that time when we managed to get to the front row of a concert in ten minutes
(we can't do that! Yes, you can! But it's not fair! But how else will you be able to see anything? Oh.)
maybe I'll start to be adult when I don't act small anymore
when I don't just walk inbetween stuff my friends walk around
when I don't always find something to stand on
(I like the new perspective thre

NaPoWriMo #5
The moment you realize
you've spent too much time
in the intangible digital pages
of easy and instant and endless
is when you reach the end
of the first chapter of a real book
and look for the review button.
(the hint you missed
was you dancing through the house
in exultant joy
at the feel of pages between your fingers)

NaPoWriMo #3
loving is like breathing; unconsciously
its one part of the brain deciding that this, this is what we do now
and the other part scrambling to keep up, wait, how does this work

NaPoWriMo #2
there's something sad about snow
that something once so soft can turn so sharp
(no, don't be fooled, even the softest snows can smother you)

NaPoWriMo #1
spring comes with summer taunts
sunshine and warmth and bloom
before turning back to winter
cold winds and grey tones
we want the sun so much 
its promises fool us every year

the sun rises in me
november ebbs away with
naught but a sound & my
body tessellates between
hope & fear in age-old
prickling black & white,
sharp & hard-hearted.
when december slips forth
with a rush of silent silver
water freezing to the touch,
i bow my head & go soft
again, like clouds, like clay,
like sand. i glitter like
silt, spiral with gloss, stars,
& guilt. i can feel the
winterdrift in my bones, can
see it through the lush
leaves of my secrets.
so, december: blue, with
gravity and seafoam and one
dim light turning on when
another goes out, waxy
early in the morning, a
tangle of love caught in
my throat; the burrs dragging
downwards like shooting stars
destined to kiss the rose bushes.
& it seems like a huge load
to bear but i will take it on
like i take in air: gently, &
one breath at a time.

Electric lace
spread across an
velvet sky.
Bioluminescent plankton
through a
black blue
ocean of
flecks of
brightening up
the twilight,
sending down such a
peaceful glow
that instantly
and eases you to
Even for the
the soft gleam
slows their mind.
Perhaps not enough
to induce sleep,
but at least
Such a sight is
rare here
where city lights
cover the sky,
blocking night’s
natural light.
Maybe one day
I can fall
to the
celestial dance
in the sky.

6: Weightless
I'm watching three little birds
feathering their way
around the holly bush out front -
they look like leaves
blown in a sudden breeze,
like light bouncing
off a stirring pond.
I let the day flow by;
water is not something
you can hope to catch,
and today's current
can only reel me in
if I let go.
And so I'm floating,
fluffed up on the swallows' wings,
and greeted by the warmth
of an iridescent sunset.

a gardener's ailments may include
the valley at thirteen is
missing evergreens;
heart poison, low on oxygen
and their blood is running thin.
ventricular tachycardia.
dusty skin against the rust,
clutch at the whispers of
their fluttering pulse.
quiescent beauty.
something new is happening.
asphyxiation and amethyst anthers;
violet delights have violet ends.

i wanted you but memory will do
i wore a locket around my neck
full of stardust that fell on the nights we stayed
away from the bonfire
because you understood that i can't breathe well in crowds
without me having to say a word.
i took your hand as we walked through the woods because
i was scared of
crossing strangers on narrow paths and
i would let go again when we passed them by but
your fingers lingered and i still wonder if maybe
you had hoped that mine would too.
i can't run like you do but
i do it anyway,
at this point i'm a runaway
(get it, i run away from everything that scares me)
here one day, gone the next,
with no trace that i ever existed except for a whiff of
mint in the air that you said was always on my jacket.
i could never be kept still,
wanderlust eyes drag me
and i leave without footprints,
keeping shrapnel of the crumbling sky from back when
it would catch fire over our heads and the ashes would
litter your blonde hair and
i would've sworn your blue eyes had flames inside the cracks

3: Snooze Button
It's 8:30 and
I have a pile of laundry
waiting for me at home,
and a reasonable bedtime waiting for me
after that.
But I'm not fond
of leaving your arms right now
and so I think I'll hit snooze
on responsibility
and snuggle with you
a little while longer.
