So Here You Are

The skin has holes in it

it breathes like cotton

protects against all things

except the universe

has a word to say about that.


The universe has a fabric

it sweats outward

you can't hear it groan

for all the flowers

the summer has around you.

  4. Anna,

    Thank you so much! I always feel a bit awkward 'going for' either beauty or horror.

  5. Brian,

    Thank you! Abstract Expressionist work makes me feel I have leeway. I guess they've reached me. Lots of those guys.
