Two Poems from “Still Running”

Writer’s Block

Inside my head,
there’s a great silence,

a refrigerated,


Tinnitus: A Love Song

It’s something only I can hear
and especially during those moments
that get so quiet without you
not a buzzing exactly or a hiss
more like the screech of lab mice
conditioned by electric shocks
to shudder at the smell of cherry blossoms.
