In The Right Place


I see still limbs inside photographs.
Faces concrete in gesture.
Though at one point animated,
I think:
“Not for use.”

What if air
Tilted? Reflected gloss
Like a shiny photograph.

Squinting
Would be a common expression of failure.
Full eyed,
Wide,
As dimples!
A gesture of love.

Humans with smooth skin
Would be the byproducts of care.

Squinter-s,
A measurable experience,
In the length of their wrinkles.

Nostalgia,
Nothing more than a heavy sigh.
Bathed in the blushing glow
Of an exit sign.
Pretending to be a stab wound.

Mirages
Acknowledged as reality.

Our fingers flicking through shimmers.
Like angels using their halos as a Frisbee.

Inside photographs
I am a brave sadist.

High on ticking clocks.

In the air,
I am proud of the arthritis
I developed from movement.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
