breathing fire like
before a healthy dinner
she says, "mam, I think the boss would like you to be in early…"
"dragons never sleep and they don't have scales
they have armor"
because they love the sun.??? she thinks
"no," she responds in the dreams
where the sun is like an ice cube
beneath the pillows of empathy
a bolt store in your backyard
tired like laughing when frozen
angry like fish cakes on your birthday because
you need the oils
biting like a snaggle tooth dog
trying to cover up its smile
when things work out
they do in the best ways
I am making sculpture like a princess
in a kingdom of wild
wish I would have
hugged the crap out of my
siblings when we
three and four years old
we were the kindest tiny oceans
in the middle of one gigantic boat
that ol school satellite
the one that listens
blue and fine and choppy
you are an ingredient to the soup
the one the witches brewed
in a pot
was in the chanting..
"the poison'd entrails throw.-
Toad, that under cold stone,
Boil thou first i' the charmed pot!"
that the courage came
shame on me for never wanting to wear a black pointed hat
because I preferred
little Red Riding Hood
My two year goal is to secure a decommissioned submarine for a sculpture... if you have one... PLEASE let me know.
