like crystal cuckoo spit

eyes blink
slick with sugared sand
a nursling of mine nestles
in sweet straw asleep… 80 more words

And scatters debris
at her feet… 186 more words

that peel bananas
with their toes. 118 more words

like a Spring immigrant
seeking shelter in my frozen arms.

The years tumbled down
a gyroscope of
might have beens.
