Logorrhea

I just want
to talk quickly,
pressing
bullets into
if, maybe, stupid.

If you listen

Tonight,
a poem will
inadvertently
plop down
on a back page.

2 erasures

spurt (n.)

The best idea
is a spurt,

enough to consume
clouds
large and swift.

to believe (v.) 

Believe in the fallen,
insulated against
the whirlpool  
of belonging.

Green Room

A break-up is like
Death pacing up and down
in the green room,
his penultimate
appearance
before the curtain
closes.
