i stand here, in an earth’s dark


a black sun

screaming its storms of light

in black through i

that i can, but;

forever just begin,

on my reach through

my body’s echo in eternity.

inside the candle of breath

on visions of a mountain’s

silent swim - with the clouds


winds tearing unseen

somewhere above

the line of growing

in green

the sunset rises

as colors

multiple of black


snow drifts - reflecting

the clouded - moon

for light,

non-flesh hands

who pass with no command

sifting, through the sands of

standing breath

woman - how often born ...

who walks - so open in

her closed shell

before she's torn

with eyes, as flooding gates

pouring living dreams as

silent screams

across the fates

air who bends

wrought on the

never quite moves to pass

fasting with in grass

dreams to be free

wet - from her drives


naked fingers have

stained within my skin

sidewalks - where so long

echoed her steps

she has never heard her

own cries for more

through closed eyes

as his body’s sweat

ran naked between

her breasts,

of a dress black - riding

loose between she

leaning her body to ride

clean - across

a dream’s eternal reach

as all the while, someone

shivers with cold

grabbing at names

that she may

never remain in the street

of yesterday’s stain

while no movement burns

the grass!

you take me down

as a scream on the wind -

i find fingerprints

in swell

on the motion, that i may

feel and to care

reflected through steel,

behind the call of a street


bare feet who bleed on concrete

a smile on your hand

who looks my way


all the plays, you say

as you walk


casting no shadow

for who!

but just you, to see!

as a woman, you've acted

but never lived to be -

for below all the city lights

a shadow,

a moment across the cleaned stain

drifting between streets,

sores calloused on my feet

broken mirrors


in an open path

on the lead

to nowhere

and on the sides,

carrying sins, to

prove they care

frozen tears

lie on torn sheets

washed eternally clean

of red -

fading with the

dream never dreamt

just lived

into it’s death before birth

far into a morning

the sun not yet risen,

snow still fresh

as a towel unused

and a man

naked with the

wanting, alone


without a search

to warm the sand . . .

where i go ...

where do i go -

muddied feet, bare

skin which tares

on the; which compares realities

blood lost with the ground

as so quickly they

see it no more

with sound you can but only

hear -

a child waking eternally

shaking silent tears -

with her

young unspoken fear

they name

another name

where i go ...

a woman naked and strong

lies, that she

may wake with

the man


there is no sin?

"oh! please"

in her yearning,

of more then, the

chance of life

the wisp of a wind in freedom,

the cat's dead,

as his rotted skin

pastes blank memories

as the child barks

and rolls over

on command -

but frozen tears,

lie broken in

whose hand -


with dreams taking the

place of sand

with a group of cheers

stealing the

place of

winter approaching oceans

where i go


where am i

a skinless - too often,

shell, adrift

through the silent screams

of living dreams -

grasping fingers

real into : into real

watching myself grow

but glowing with light never


time turns just not to


tonight is

as another day

and awake


who might say!

- - -

and when she screams

no one fears

no one dares to die

or fares on evil,

when they must -

she dreams

- jude




in crossing with real


but not that i want you

as not that i don't

as strangely there

is no lust for you -

yet of me you are


to sleep in touch with you

i would -

on what i hear

but for the

walls of time

you mind

so i smile on knowing

an energy so - alive

children of autumn

leaves, long dead come running

on winter’s head

roll with a silent wind

begin and end

across that open lot

where in a moment

it seems time forgot

i rise from sleep,

where morning is

quiet - as if death

no longer rides


and a sky flickers with

words, ever so soft -

needing to say

but nothing on the

anything ride -

has my rock faced

smile - broken

where all the no ones would see

nothing to believe

where anything born

is so rarely retrieved

while a man is never relieved

winter is in season

but on an autumn flame -

she barely has

a name

yet she is breaking in try

all the same -

i'm torn with pieces

with nowhere to show

but when i'll

crave for trees

i'll just get snow -

we are children of autumn

tied with winter stains -

- jude





in pieces,

the glass fetuses

strewn across the floor

a naked woman

hidden by a coroner

shadow - cries for


blood increases in pour

her child whisper’s fear

so far away in the distance

while her any man


away without any refrain on

her living pain

dance in place


for a while

a single tree smile

all going nowhere

yet all caught

nameless she tries


nameless she wantingly lies

confiding where one need

never speak - ?

or possibly seek

but she peeks

from somewhere

there on the floor


that a wind-sewn

poem - lover

might also scream

as he doesn't -

fearfully into dying -

child’s scared of trying

yes - sunflower-night-care;

- jude




between refrain

come over to this wooden table


lean your fingertips

with all those words -

your - poetry

fears, to hold -

i'm an old man

wrinkling onto the


of my care

say good-bye

if you must

run from your soul’s lust

but maybe

give to me

when you are mine -

broken walls - just beyond

the dreams,

of calls


those hidden words

who leak

across a moon’s! dusk-light

we meet at night

with sight

while day

still bites across

bending waves of here


an unspoken dilemma

of where

but why

die! for the grave is mine

yet -

live my moment in

try -

broken walls,

just beyond - the dreams

of calls ?

a sometime woman

eternally in stay

a snow which is drifting

from sky and from ground

nights who move into


to turn it around

sights are peeling like

lights in the winter

while mountains are


in white-storm-freedom

time's the play

to an underside

eternally in stay -

for loving, and turning

a little man with yearning

hard fingers, on a hard glass wall

there are calls and falls

yet winter has no


with narrow straights

and rivers bleeding

the poet roams

seeding his eyes

and tears on his shadows

screams, match footprints

beneath the rain -

no breaking, of faking

forsaking all sighs

sparrows ride on

the wind

whispers in try,

pieces aren't simple

yet - neither are they whole

and loving leaves ripples

into the breathing

of a soul

his soul isn't rock

or a broken tree


across smiles

across pain

beneath frozen snow


who flow

moving is the

only loving

he knows

a sometime-woman,

wandering near

owns smiles

like snow flowering in a tree

owns fingers

as water eternally craving to be

owns eyes

caverns of stain

on living color rain

owns me

and nothing, autumn blows

free -

is loved ;

till she'll die

without try or even touch

no names of friendship

or such

for somewhere below a

surface of flesh -

are breathing sounds

who meet and

mesh -

a sometime woman

is alive for no reason

and many

for the soul is of feeling

where someone can be

time's the play

to an underside,

eternally in stay.

but for - who is she

touch her

to drink of who is she listening to her

no, not the woman

but just someone alive

leaning in a place who

could easily be free -?-

who is she

i ask

and ask aside walls

a man, not wanting

to be

but a poet who dreams to see

to touch her

to drink of who is she

i find a scream

almost frightened dream

bleeding unseen

so i want,

i ask - to see

i tear open places

but from me

to lean inside



belonging to no one,

but i

a lie, maybe in ride

and not

yet never within

it begins

then asks


who is she

she opens fingers -

i touch a flame

of ocean fire

afraid to move

yet maybe -

with, nowhere to go -

just wanting to see

as there is no


need to be

- - -

for no reason -

but she is heard,

i lean -

only ; on

who is she -

yes, just

to smile,

in a world



simply breaking

into nothingness -

merry christmas,

no one -

and to, no one,

a goodnight ,

so !

- jude




christmas almost

crumple a poem,

half written

within fingers

tightly yearning through sweat

scream toward a wall

predisposing on a

no one to hear

watch snow, fall into water

vapored before the ground -

i'm roaming through the

sand of christmas -

never quite finding

a door -

as anything near

or anything more -

i might know a woman

she might know me

yet on a day of belonging -

the moon

must release the sea,

open trees, a wind breeze

a strain of words

trail ahead

holding tightly

between i and

an echo,

tomorrow ever wide

dividing on

everything who might be there

till nowhere

leaning on the edge of


christmas almost

- - -

so what can i say -

it's the breathing

of the day

and I -

just no poems,

will stay . . .
