GALLOP from the SIXTH PARTITA

in the ballet, two women stand atop
two men on all fours

while the barefooted heroine
swipes her scarves across the floor

even though her hair is falling down through her performance

there are no sets

that draws me ever closer
spoken so little so far
something quite timeless

how forcefully I’d been praying

Happy New Year, love!
grace be with thee, always

seasick in these choppy, seemingly uncharted waters
disciples in their storm-tossed husk

Texas at Yuletime?

out and about, in shorts and sandals
as the peaches blossom

“you know, the day hasn’t been going so hot for me, either”

flight through the furnace of sunset
to reveal more than I’d intended
working three callings simultaneously
(some tests to follow up from the car crash)

send quick three words

a daring, radical act
I see this stint coming home
so adorably serious

just come and be brilliant
