even breath offers hope


no matter the jubilant ribbons that string from me

or strike in desperate sheets

of seething frustration

it sticks

like a lion to the golden ground




it sings, this blind thing,

like a sword

stripping notes from the sky


falling slowly

begging touch

sweet lopping of heads

a silver screen, pops and jumps

making obvious the distortion that laps at my heart

more and more I laugh and yet it stays.


I hoped the laughing would coax it to light where it would fold over

revealing sharp edged flatness

but it seems the hoping just gives it a platform

and only acceptance offers hope

but that gives it a platform

that begs the acceptance that offers hope………. that gives….

even breath

  1. Nice use of free verse with the artwork. I particularly love this image that you’ve drawn. It’s very powerful. There’s a sense of chaos and balance to it as well. I like that it’s effeminate and masculine at the same time.
