- ;;sustainability
Bit by bit - we carved
the land - crushed the rocks
to make our sand - burned
the plants to show - our
Pride - and sold our earth
to fill another field - and now
I wonder where it is
I am
to stand.

- Anticipation

Through the — curtains —
dappled light —of two tones
— red and blue —

from the door — a
knock —
that broke the stillness
— but still’d the room.

boundary - child
for the Things with yellow’d
eyes and - crooked
teeth

Trees.

- let the
heat warm your
Meat -
and seep into - your
Bones.

Yes- while you
wait for your
Sister
nibble on
the sweet.

Still -
time
- catch I not this frenzied moment
?
I feel it there - in - the
patter
of my chest
can I not
my breath - contain?

my back - taut and
I cannot-
time - time!

like water - off
my
cheek.
