I might be her


I might be her she said
and that made me think
if it might be her
who may I be

she might be the sunrise
and I may be the ground
she might be serendipity
and I may be starbound

I might be her she said
and I may be a passing ship
sailing by without permission

she might be exactly
who she thinks she is
and since discovering such words
I may never have noticed





may two thousand twenty-two

center of the universe


I offered silence and I was
chastised by the god of noise

while the god of peace recessed
into a corner dressed in white

sitting on a stool she recounted
neither scripture nor sacrifice

proclaiming no territorial disputes
offering no reasons for forgiveness

all the while peaceful men wage
war in the four corners of the world

disbelieving the looking-glass
located in the center of the universe

reflects a world of possibility


august two thousand sixteen
