Some Twitter Poems

Trilling high
coyote howl.
Starlight trembles.

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

follows the chisel’s path
on highboy medallion.

Rain froze
on wooden steps
for the top heavy

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.

to the slender center
of peace
as mountains

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

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.
