I’ll Remember


I’ll remember how I wanted to tell you everything

rummaging around in my head

I’ll remember the crumbs I gave you

and the tears that threatened to shed

I’ll remember how I locked it all away

and let you speak instead


-Mother & Daughter in the café

Midnight Sea


I track sand into my bed

creating an ocean in my dreams

turning salt water to silk

and waves into window curtains


They toss back and forth

with the midnight tide

sending me through the horizon

and a veil of closing eyes


I sink into the clouds

and fall through the breeze

becoming a multitude of waves

washing the shore away
