Marionettes

We are a pair of dolls,
both familiar and strange,
acting out old roles in a new dollhouse,
under the whim of a lording child.

Magic Trick

Move me to the brink of my seat,
fingers clutching the edge,
transport me elsewhere,
where I can taste the grit swirling in the air,
feel the callused palm of the character’s reaching hand,
smell the sweat clinging to her skin,
and hear her heartbeats echo in mine.

Nocturne

After all of the trees harvested for houses, furniture, and sundries
now rot from the autumn rainstorms,
and animal corpses decompose atop shallow graves,
and there’s nothing left to burn,
one last piano remains
with its melodies
to warm and satisfy our hungry ghosts
through the cold, bitter nights.
