My Poetry

Residency.

He will always be home. The smell of that apple-scented candle lingering through the vents of the house Shoes with muddy tongues lined up by the front door Red, hot stove burners alive on Sunday mornings Scratches and greasy fingerprints cluttering the worn porcelain bowls Battered pillows covered in drool and old make up Wrinkled… Continue reading Residency.

Do Not Touch.

She can wear what she wants. She can walk down the street naked, and you still would not have the right to violate her. If someone leaves the door to their house open, does that give you the right to walk in?

Memory Lane, My Poetry

Summers in Arizona

Going through a twenty-pound bag of ice in three days.   Cooking eggs and steak in a pan in the street, or baking cookies in the car dashboard.   Packing into public pools and splash pads like a can of sardines.   Dropping the air conditioner down to 74 degrees.   Driving down to California… Continue reading Summers in Arizona
