Poet Bio

There where my heart’s faucet’s drop drips
deliberately dreaming a despair-less day,
only soon to meet the excreta of the day

Anesthetized in descent by both
The cool round nothingness surrounding
and the thought of soon warm embrace of tap temp regret

Its arrival, an acheless ripple
in an aching ocean of the day’s ripening sweat,
activates a distant memory of what is to come

Violent silence
Bones bled dry
A question on the edge of that point that cannot avoid
it but is destined to never touch

Am I becoming the drop or the pool?
