Beautiful work…..


Recording Hurt


It is a blue bruise

that opens up,

a seeping stain,

that tells us

what hurts, what leaks

where the faultlines are.


The sky

in a clearing of clouds

a similar vision

for the birds

a moment’s clarity







Storms do pass

and wounds will heal

but not without damage

an abyss of traces

of charts and maps


Bodies log them every way

bodies of water, bodies of soil,

this malleable clay

mottled and streaked

and washed with the rain.
