Wreckage

I don’t dream anymore,
only think about winter ships,
your blue lips
trapped in the sinkhole
under the shipwreck
that was us.

Beautiful

You’re most beautiful
when you’re most angry,
confusing antipasto
with antipathy
and we both
quietly go hungry.

Breadcrumbs 

She feeds breadcrumbs
to the birds
until
they stop visiting
and she has to eat
the stale pieces
herself,
feeling
a fluttering
in her throat.

Kyle Hemmings wishes he could play in an obscure ’60s garage band but he’s too young.

Nursing Home Kismet

She mistakes me
for the man in the photo,
the one in the pinstripe suit,
whom she married
in Las Vegas
some fifty years ago,
but I’m too lonely and withered
to make revisions.
