birthday poems. (queen cannery, 28 june)

fires & abandonment.
we left them alone,
requested peace
with castaways, and
flung from autumn
former selves
that we delight in.

==

we’re skilled
at hiding,
pushing buttons,
owning fear,
asking for directions,
and why are you
not doing what you love?

==

contemplating furtive devotion
on the eve of a South Pacific holiday.

(a dyslexic father works
to tell his son he loves him.)

==

I’ve reason to reexplore my edges,
step consciously & sharpen them.
transitionmode is overwith.
my spirit is committed.
