A sampling of my work

When I look down
all I see is bone.

Inside of muscle
            inside of flesh

When I look up
all I see is veins

inside of leaves
              inside a tree

When I look west
all I see is foam

inside a wall
             inside a house

I’m a Human
X-Ray Machine

inside a world
        inside a solar system
                inside a solar interstellar neighborhood
                            inside a galaxy
                                       inside a local galactic group
                                                     inside a supercluster
                                                                  inside a local supercluster
                                                                         inside an observable universe
                                                                                           inside a proposed universe

The road was a river, or could have been  
the way the rain danced over pot-holed tar
and glittered under indifferent street lamps.
I sat beneath naked trees, jack-knifed limbs
sighing in the night. I waited for love, lust or drugs.
A stranger in a tweed suit, a dog without an owner,
a miracle or a spaceship.
