Four Poems

Times the Dog Looks for God

Sun is too hot
Sun is too cold
Fire alarm


Balsamic Moon

Lightning in remembered spaces
going dormant
Shade avoidance and dashboard doubles


Feeling Dramatic in the Sun with Paprika Cola 

     Sun on the A Frame ladder parsed out notes
               Reflecting a tip burn disco
The rhubarb couldn't bother and the cherry didn't mind


To Feed Back

Center like the sun 
Center like a sun
Seeing dashboard doubles and

avoiding the recurrent sensation of being crushed in a metallic way. 

Thinking a form is edible then catching your tooth.
