Literature
Fence Posts
It feels like locust dust, falling from our mouths,
Words of spindling terror that spill down our bodies to land on their heads,
Because we are teaching their infant souls to feel hate
A weapon of heat and radical confusion that blasts through gossamer bone
Builds sky high fences that keep them bound to the grasses we have grown
But they don't know, they don't know why,
Those fence posts are sunk so deep into one place,
Or why they have learned to throw stones and stay close to what they know.
Because they watch us, with thirsty eyes,
Drinking up our crimes likes its truth.
They have learned not to feel the skin that bruises with each injustice,
They have learned not to feel the way love can only expand inside their lungs
And how those lungs can lift them up, if only they knew how.
We are teaching their infant souls of demons and senseless rules that serve only to confine them,
A pasture of hate that is so familiar it feels safe,
And few will be brave enough to hold their glass bottle

Literature
She gave me her name, when mine wore out
I wear her skin,
as often as i can,
until my brittle bones begin to curve beneath its weight and i have to give it back.
Her skin is made of iron,
and yet she wears it like a coat of feathers,
delicately reflecting back at me.
She gave me her name, when mine wore out,
when it was said too many times in disappointment and anger and heartbreak. I take her words,
warm honey words of sure truth and acceptance, i swallow them
because I know she always speaks the truth.
Sometimes i lose her,
when i slip too far beneath the ocean of heartache,
when i get too weak to hear or taste the dry beating of her heart. She is high above,
on her throne of logic,
waiting for the waters to stain me,
so that i won't resurface unlearned. Her strong arms pull me out when my bones have sprung loose
and my heart has impaled itself. These are the necessary scars, she says.
And the hole grows over,
the bones pushed back into a new order,
and i sit with her above the sea,
growing harder as the winds dry the water
