Amblyseius

       Spherical
steel cage
    on a chain
you hold
       what holds
me here
    surfacing
depleted
       for a vortex
of honey
    at midnight
condensation
        forms
between this
    and a few moths
the new moon
       is near
no matter what
    it’s swirskii
’cause fear
       eats the
one thing
     you came
here for
        on a wing
of silk
     on a wind
thru an open
        window

Magnesium


There’s a reason
why I listen
to Ali Akbar Khan
until it’s dawn.

I pulled it out of my puzzle box
and tasted it
bitter and beautiful
just to see the moon shine
again.

I’ll be brewing tea
all day tomorrow
pondering what move to make next
on the chess board of my soul.

How could it have come to this?
I can’t believe my eyes.
It will never be so simple
again.

We embrace
each other
and the moment
because we can.
