into earth

for as love tries,

a child cries

dying still into a man

alone on a rock

cropping - mountain


to pace against walls

and to roam edged by the


wind, moon owned

someone sewn into himself

how hard in deep

steeply pitted against aching grass

hilled field set

before an open plain,

nothing remains

does nothing remain.

ancient stains on wetted

sheets no retreat

many faces in a

mirror - have seen

me no more

and still they stare

reflections bend on a cross of sin

as / man.

commands are forgotten

demands are returned

to birth

birth is born only

in the wind

till only

will the wind / metamorphose

into earth.

odds into a frame of insanity

where holds the need

to play forth a scream.

oneís body

aches within itself

yearns to touch


fingertips upon my own

in feel

to belong

hard blue -old

years sound between

what is wrought in


to strum knowing upon

someoneís flesh - for a moment to mesh

and nothing more?

for to matter

seconds - in a retreat opened wide

to confide movement

into movement

seen - what dare do

i mean, edged along

a scream /

a dream unseen

or birth within an eye


alive inside the

flow of men

a woman unknown - as somehow

sewn into a reach i ever feel

a somewhere real in yet

odds into a frame of insanity,

rests nervous

waiting is movement - is a lost thought

of fear


that i am clear - in all donít i know

sewing with the wind

leaving but fingertips

owning any free,

between the scream and /

dreams torn

iíve thought

or have wrought within

upon - to life on

death edged

in song - screams as pain

for where, none

dare - i know

belonging but as a name

and all the faces - live locked

in the games of man

that i am insane

or mutated in a

strangerís form

though either, could easily remain


the other

empty palms where love

more as touch upon, a

woman, more then a name

or, a moment

in the movement of


a reach for eternal visions

which lean the wind to the ground

sound in music

torn - from ever



places not meant to hide

places with nowhere to abide within,

but for wind mirrors


dreams torn

screams worn.

isles of nowhere

aloneness and the edge of it

to sit - legs crossed upon


visions of faces almost play

upon my mind - as the yearning

to find myself ever


that i stare long into a distance never seen

by all the many

people lost in ancient

dreams - as mirrors

in fall

what calls to me from the edge of my

sight - near to where lives a void

full in force remembering

who lies in wait, near -

children almost tall

play music soft tears live behind

fears - never yet

born - a woman lives

yet - torn from all,

from all the voices - silently building

within her

and who!

screams without a name -

isles of nowhere

tainted by delight

sighted for the changes

never called to a turn

to burn - just within,

simple swim as a river

sound turns forever by

clouded color is the sky

drifting - are moving forever


a feeling upon my shoulder

someone smiles as does she cry -

living - the strain of


names - so easily moving


isles of nowhere

listen as years

are the fleeting eyes

a woman sighs for the love and hate

sheís been taught

to relate or escape -

a feel upon my shoulder,

is she something real,

lost -

within these;

isles of nowhere.

of time tinted blue...

as time moves on,

knowing her still

owning the distance,

and still

somewhere in the same

her name as a piece of

my soul

but there is nowhere

left to grab hold


her return

and so i burn

in the turn

of time tainted blue

hard in the aloneness

hard in the loss

broken upon by a floating taste

of such is she

on of a woman who -lived

into me

long good-byes

eternal in the

tries of being

frozen tears


still water lost behind

winds blow ...

winds blow unseen in movement

holding past time

rhyme lies never quite


black traces,

form in almost faces


sometimes dream in

dare to believe in,

behind the lines

of sea-green

blue across finds

as she lies deep into me -

bend your words

till almost canít they be

can maybe she see

in being more then

merely such on the edge

of flesh - meshing

past rest,

and a river breaks


rooted trees

blowing in as wind

across your knees

silent as seas across,

open space -

trace a finger down

and iíve found

my prints lying

slow into hers

as her hair bends with

color for somewhere

reasons unseen -

i know upon tears

touched upon her face

and down

edging through turning leaves

sold on free,


she comes to me

owning silence

yet... never merely voids

in sun paint,

stains unstained, blood

the red

of time wed

onto only


movement free

blowing wind

black traces,

form in almost faces;

lasting only in the wind...

death worn,

from the living edges

of all the world

which holds itís need

on a seeded fear

visions unseen

and all the million words

used to voided ends

as they demand deep into

me -

in the lies of empty tries,

all the too many


offerings of death

onto me

/ a child in my soul

owning only a scream to be

to be, is free


as wind passing into someoneís

open eyes -

with silent tears

lying in the open


of rock found

across a mountain,

turning sky Ė towards sky

reflections found and to


somewhere deep inside

waiting in a living ride

of reach somewhere

sands of wind

morning is

more then just a reason why,

you woke from

frozen trees bending

with the sands of wind,

you lie

across yourself alone

with the sea

and blue,

for the sky in free


to mirror just back

onto thee

where does but where

wait to be

or is

never simply on the

loss of concrete

full across the yet to be

in retreat,

a street sigh

lies just across the rain

where windows of night

stain back for eyes


sacked or tied

full in black

and whatís a name

or where

you stare - into air

living pictures,

almost seen and know

to feel

as touch

living the edge of wind.

virginity to blue / something torn, something new

cry to me alone,

and none other

known to hear - where yesterplace

screams, lie - too

soft below the

tips - of fingers - wandering


clouds - which stare too openly


there is a lack, between a voice

drifting chained words through eternity

in place looking

to be -

and eyes stare long in a close hold

leaning too hard - not to seed,

held from age

upon a gifted stage

where lies wood too

easy -

her scream, is slow

as life it shows

in long dreams of

hair black

still falling simply - down

her back

what is left upon white never known

sewing patterns across the void,

hoping for a world

might you flow more heavily -

lost in / virginity to blue

; for something torn

something new

easy into water,

lies wind waiting before her eyes


the child is, woman known

reaching for mirrors

never / or ever

a boulder fell

a boulder fell

leaving itís space untouched

a storm in itís grounding rain

broke open moments,

and time was left with little

to say

and as she met me in the beginning


light is wrought within sound -

her hand filled slow

with nowhere to go

her breath fell cool

on words of silence, with eyes

simply holding me

nothing simple is left to be,

carved names - were phrased

ever long - deep beyond the

skin of a tree

held bent - to the wind

torn in scream,

between concrete

on a face of walls

about us - i lean into she

as / i lean out

to lines untouched and beyond .

in void, i motion

birth - all nameless

these fleshless reasons

into many seasons turning autumn,

a bend in the sky

for she and i,

reasonless whys - ?

eternal tries

we turn slow into


to believe without mirrors

and /

light explodes in

into we - meeting we



movement is always - of beginnings

: or into

a continuum of now.

an ocean recedes

as the moon

lies lines into freedom

we touch upon

the waiting of our souls

we touch of beginnings

eternal in their

deep drifting wind

slow wonder

to never quite wake

from a silver threaded dream

who seams never,

complete - back to the

wandering now of your

fingers -

take a step from a stage

and the stage - remains

in the mists

of others - held in black

solo whispers / and scarlet


just below your palms lying

hands deep within

wind sands -

only - almost - commands lie

day across earth,

children edged on freedom, no more

but the silence of yet,

wet in your screams

a universe bends


ever often unheard

in itís hearing

but losing nothing,

milk upon - your lips

trips which never fall


in only - ? -


implode out into the


deep drifting wind


from the drifting sins .

blue mind / earthless find...

summer melts down

into - leaning

winter, shades in black

weighted to the edge

of your soul

somewhere to go,

climbing through trees

leaves wind torn are silent

words lost to the

whispers of dusk -

in mid-day

lies summer light

held to the unseeing mists

of night

somewhere you go,

tears but wet

a pocket upon my shirt

clean to a stage

ever unsung -


life bends death

and / death

while distance still knows itís movement

in song

still knows me

nowhere dreamer -

morning wakes you too warm,

with dreams awaking never quite

and my sweat never leaves her

side -

(and when someone dies!

but no time left to cry)

a walk on the mists

a spoken for time

breaking rhyme and free -


a woman, and

edging before the sea .

on beginnings who conceive, no!, end

long time running,

long time slow - with somewhere

in frozen feel

what do we know

sight wandered through

tangled hair who owns your face

a steel train was once

all for a game never played

scarlet tears, cried only in blue -

to scream between concrete

on waiting Ė the quiet run

quiet ride on a definite name

evening fabric

a wrap of dreams

just vaguely seen

a child alone

in a child not

about the edges

stalking naked - the seems of her


so rarely in herself

covers are - in their image,

name - eternity once ingested

is never the same

hiding behind a definite stance

a woman lays her freedom

yester-year fears

somewhere between concrete

street on a scream,

as i sit between the hours of

life / or death - or quotes

of, rest

in concrete lies the imprint of sand

commands which linger

as against hollow walls

of someone trying for less

a simple ant crawls along,

peaking his day alone

on the plains of stone


lost - for the fountains of

his mateís dreams

simply and dies in a circle of


a child on the terms of a woman

draped upon white

i met in the

quietness of

a second

ever past - movement as voids

spoke hard her name

voiceless - demands in the

eternal echoes between

concrete -

as in once, always is she


once seen.

do i know what i mean.


somewhere between concrete

is birth -

and what!

tears of love / or death...


slow moon

a drop of light

drifting within / behind

a tree - space-free distance

, close

a momentís sight

caught as i,


within, where

sands rarely echo

was birth only in me

but who lives,

on where - who dies,

the skies have

once but tried

a scream on the

mirrors of: never quite

brought always to the face of,

someone standing,

has died

ignoring my eyes

demanding but where

my poetry doesnít live to


a piece of the sky

fell, into my fingertips

screams met

lost into freedom


in the distance i own

someone cried,


someone cries,


tears of love /

or death...

water bends

a fracture of light

hearing across sight

water bends across the ease of

words, walking and between

a fall of time

lays aside - ever intricate

the hides of more

then animal flesh

to mesh just to only

within a bend

rape tied, to

scale concrete roads

naked with pores sipping

screams, all the way


an everyway,

i sit a while

to stay

to bend

send out from the bend,

of myself

sweat drained

i lean

into - a self force

for birth-cry,

stained rain

never simple waters

fingertips as feet

open retreat

out into - what

names cross to

freedom or the wind

i swim for the water

i offer my fingers to the air

, for the bend of time

i see - on maybe

opened tight across my


screams in the wind...

hard open sun

drifting out

street-light shadow

slow rhyme sung

to the find,

to name such in

rise meets the wind

slow - time

owns a void

where time is but the

meeting of our fingers

sing sweet in

september - longing


autumn screams

a mellow raging line

easy eyes are black in their

soul touch

a collage wrap

a summer chill

off on a shadow street

back behind defeat

lovers who meet

in paired eyes

tears hidden inside - tight to

the need

seed of growth

seed of blues in wind,


winter waiting

to be seen

open fingers drifting

across the void

morning is a name

in free

to: a woman - waking

inside of me

/ night blues, alive


creation across the black,


two hands upon an open sack


back onto the streets

wind before defeat

on the edge

wind through a hard open sun

morning wakes to a woman

ancient in jade

something broken,

something made

carve through water

crystal to stone - wind blown free

fingers -, time torn moving

a cry of feed / or need

warming but just the image

a surge of sky

long to the full and black

of a New Hampshire,


feel from through grasses who know

of bend

back-streets begin and end

birth, on the eternal revision

of death torn

a finger known in sand

blue earth names the ground.

a voice - echoing from a wind

bend in torn trees

on our knees to autumn

words are free in silence

and in between, the weight of ever more

a door within a void

i know

hard lines - earth in its sharp finds

soft - are the shadows of light,

where a tearís turn need

never face the mirror

ancient in jade

a woman within

sheets stained within a lost cover

cold as ice upon

her lips

long sips in blue

for stands tall

and seen

shadows across a wall

shadows upon a sky


only fingers

whispering free.






no stage for where to

play - the songs of rights or wrongs

i long for a simple mountain

share - where the lines

between fear and hate

are the only of little

more then a robin

stolen from flight

scream -

with nowhere to lie

earth is all as frozen steel

with no hand owning no place

to even live

or die

whys are all the names of illusion

christmas falls as

shattered glass

colorless - candles without wicks

lying in shaded windows

the screams of fists ache now with

the wind and mud

a child cries still too loud

still, much unseen

to know what i


a last hippie

with nowhere left to

your name

torn one day in the wind,

you stand against brick mold

a fold

youth asking in old

ancient stays -

ice blades of fear hold to the

hands of long broken men


just in the question of when

tear at your eyes

smile to slap a child

who smiles on a sight

no longer seen

dare what you mean

i stand, voiceless

yet with the trace of

my soul within my

cool hand -

such are the winds in death

as - they blow through

fingers washing

nothing clean

a building is but

stones across bone naked feet

sand loose in the street

there is no edge to

eternal defeat - though

sing upon a scream

to time breaking - words for

a face of

little or - ever is more

sore on the years of

an otherís - fears,

broken tears on a

broken name - the game

rolls on

as the wind blows in

remains -

something knows


to believe in stain

and beyond

a twig to break

under but just your


into sound

a moment between

to see what you


is but a name,

there too - rides the game

for not does the wind care

but swells,

only the cross of

freedom -

rhythm into rhyme

a frozen cross upon a

manhatten train

nameless -

on a stage of pain

on a stage of pain

for no hold to remain

a domain of salt drifting

to all corners as the


name a hope in the name of

a sin,

so lies a cigerette on a wooden edge,

forgotten -

as eyes wander, into

an unfocused


a dance of mistake with nothing

in closed fists

to take

cold fingers sweat on a thought

pulsing unseen

, a silver thread - cutting

the flesh - below a fold

of brightened fabric

, for of once

a forest lied as green

across a floor

of water running cold

and clean

of a child warm and unsung,

naming love and

only for free

till concrete

scraped waking skin

a backstreet - brings mornings

and defeat


birth and rage

no props as

someone, rapes; tapes ice

warm and nice,

yellow sheets

lie on beds as belief

till the dance - will remain

till the dance, and

only pain!

rhythm of rage

in late summer

lies day

rain taints the air

mist in gray - an illusion

spray of names

i cross upon a window

where - eternal falls the lines

of water breaking

where distance pulls open my soul

onto a refrain of

yester-years wading into tomorrows

i hear a rhyme - so simple

fingers given to a find

of wood carved names before

the sky - where

evening falls - soft color, hard

into the calls of


and between my fingers

i lie, never easily

into a wedge of

broken concrete

pieces across the path of my falling legs

a rage where skin

rises unseen white upon my forehead,

something known - rises as a poemís

ecstasy - hard through me

and glass is but light

a mirror past me

i see age, living alive

though closed and

wounded behind a

tree - and a war called

off by a single man

who could care less

and much too much - for all the

sails which open light and

color to white - to the wind

rain knows the rhythm of rage -

reach unto where, my fingers

into the winds of black,

i dwell,

darkness from the edge

of sleep

i carry on the tips of my fingers

a name

/ and a time of meeting


i stare into a curved distance

to know - see - a face

closing with me

with something on the edge to

be -

soul winds

fingers as black light

a cross in bend

to the scent of touch

and distance closed

to the north of time

Ďreach unto where, my fingersí

my body shakes

in a farce, as skin voice

in full scream

i lean toward sleep as

a biting concrete

wall -

and am forestalled from simply


as a voice in focus

my eyes lean left

to the side

to belong

within that

which does not

belong - but yet

for time to break

my fingers lie open, the void


with its price wandering slowly

into me...


but for free

do i stand on the edge of

open - windows

glass free

naked across my eyes

a reach born, for me

a wandering for more

then ever just

a leaning

is birth rising

just north of time

street light shadows

she needs

but only cry

a silver spoke silently



sail good-bye,

where in oaken wood

she leans - does she

;to open woods as water

wind rhythm , slow as leaves


rocks are mirrors who

whisper words of yester-year

to her slow


moving feet,


tired in eyes - concrete in her


fingers beat nervously

against black steel fences

and rusted -

a stage awaits

unlit behind

dust ridden windows

tomorrow drifts with the

sky - gray in dark as


an alley echoes the

swollen rhyme

as is her voice


capture a fear - a scarlet

wrap - holding

tight to her shoulders

and night blackens

she turns away

from her name



walks with, her

street light shadows

with all a full dayís


never coming

as long fingers catch her ears

street corner strumming

humming a song

she remembers long

and, waits in a store frontís




she needs

but only cry -

needle tracks

whoís retreat lies upon her


she stands in a cityís silence

waiting, for

the amber rise of morning


to die.
