Some Twitter Poems

Trilling high
coyote howl.
Starlight trembles.
===

Beware
animals who hunt in packs
we don’t like competition.
===

Finger
follows the chisel’s path
on highboy medallion.
===

Rain froze
on wooden steps
waiting
for the top heavy
man.
===

My father a carpenter
I’m ever nostalgic
for unfinished rooms.
===

Wood shavings
and sawdust
further art
by getting
out of the way.
===

I step over
the chalk outline
of yesterday.
===

No flamethrowers for rent
at the Home Center.
The apartment stays dirty.
===

I scrape burnt toast
until a square hollow,
nothing to salvage.
===

Skyscrapers stand impassive.
All the emotion
swarms their feet.
===

Wood grain
better to finish
than drink.
===

He clings to
concrete prose,
incapable of butterflies.
===

Trees sway
to the shattering jolt
of miles away.
===

Hold
to the slender center
of peace
as mountains
sway.
===

I listened
to rain
fall soft upon the earth
wondering
how sun could ever return.
===

Prayers
only trace the outlines
of your sorrow.
===

Twisted steel
a monument
to absence.
===

Griefs repeat
yet always strike
with a fresh blade.
===

Peeling raindrops.
Pour out
the dust inside.
===

Old woman.
Small scar on her ankle
from mumblety-peg.
