  1. Halcyon surrender

    Just words in a song?


    poems lit from the inside?

    with a sigh or a moan


    that thunders its refusal

    to be caught by skin


    to be bound by bone

    such fragile shelter


    shaking in the wind

    shaking in the wind


    A wolf would blow it down

    so bring him the lamb


    Bring him the lamb

    a trembling mess


    Or let him inside

    to rip the skin


    to gnash the bone

    befriend the thunder


    To do what he’ll do

    to take what is his


  2. I make lists in my head
    When I cannot sleep from being

    From everyone
    All the time

    The first list includes
    Halcyon days before I was
    Tied down
    And what I loved about them

    The second
    A list of now and
    The people I adore

    But which one is better
    Is only dictated by
    My own perception
    And I fall into
    A fitful slumber
