frog eyes

you looked at me with
frog eyes,
as if I had just boiled your legs,
as if I had just pulled the lily pad from
beneath you,
as if I had just tied you to a hook and
landed another fish-
but there are no other fish,
and there is no sea,
just little you and
little me.

soot


spelunking near Happiness Pt.
a cave that swirls beneath Jameson Lake,
soot-stained corduroys,
weird blue sweater,
some colored moccasins-
it reminds me of when we’d 
climb up our chimneys as kids-
when we got to the top you’d always smile and
ask for a boost, and I would gladly do it,
so naively fascinated with the soft feel of your
upper legs-so anxious just to give us a
push.

thunk.

you held my hand as if
it were a lightening bolt,
a warm cannonball,
an empty salt shaker,
a cold kitten;
as we neared my
apartment i walked the
stairs without saying goodbye or
hello (in case it was opposite day) and
watched storms approach on the
weather station until they were actually
happening.

thought

I saw wooden teeth inside
the smile of a blue
whale,
and she was much
prettier than
you.

tightropetightrope

a tightrope, aloft to the side of the

boat connecting two island crossings,

narrow enough to walk on with

pigeon toed persons carrying their

suitcases like an urn with their lovers

ashes-carry on, they may, cross the

creek bed that forms slowly to a lake,

to find the other side is full of geraniums

and gymnasiums, and they can’t tell one

from the other, or another from another.

scatterminded

heavy water-algae algee algy

wraps bowed around an anchor low,

tender grip tightening the sea

bottom-S.S. Nevermind as i’ve forgotten

as soon as i thought it-your birthday last

spring, did that still happen? happy, happy,

happy-feel good, no feel better,

said a sailor once as i threw my lunch

portside-but your birthday, how about it?

twenty-one? two? sometimes it takes me

three tries to guess the name of the brothers

that first took flight,

Williams, no,

Wendell, no,

Wright.

sea lion (squid and the whale)

\

i kissed a sea lion on the lips- felt its rubber hips- wisped whiskers and whispered whispers near the zoo gates- we made love and it sounded like a shark bite piercing a squid or a whale.

dreamer dreaming dreams of sailing

strapped to one thousand
blue bullunes,
sailing me,
sailer you,
a vessel,
near a bluer moon-
whiter confetti decorates my
hull and
bow,
i am a boy,
afraid and
alone-
hello.
