Beyond The Rapids


She is beyond the waterfall crisis and has become the quiet pool

below and beyond it. She is tolerant of each, forgiving of all. She is also

In a Red Room

With walls, thick, of blood
One flat table in the middle
I watch two caught in a grudge.

A stick in the hand
Sixteen balls rolling around
Each turn, one’s own miss
Eternal clicking, the only sound.

A never ending objective
With completion ne’er to take place
My destiny is simply to watch it
Who has condemned me to this space?

Migrating balls, no pockets.
I observe an eternity of “oops’s”
Whether hit as feathery or rockets
My hell is as my heart is…

Each Time You Dive


Jumping into the pool

No water is inside

Just empty blackness

Every time you dive

Each time you dive

A part of yourself

Every time you dive


I just stay anymore

The darkness fits me

But I promise you this

I will be seeing you

Every time you dive
