James is Great: The power of our names.

James succeeded Jesus as leader of the movement. April 30 is the feast day of St James the Great. My father, Peter, stands at the gates of heaven. My uncle, Paul, recorded the acts of the disciples. My husband, James, led the way after I died for he was the only one to truly understand […]

Semi – tonics

Could you hear me singing in your sleep? Do you listen for me in the wind? Do you read between my lines? What a fascinating fashion when we gather in formation. New thing, the pendulum swings. A secret smile is saved, hidden away for me. Chase me through the labyrinth. When you are ready, when […]

Enter the black door

See my red dress that was torn during our fall. The tear through spacetime fabric, fight to regain control. I see them all walk by, their noses upturned high. Our cries fall on deaf ears, too proud to match our eyes. All torn down. For no reason, it’s not the season. Gather the legion before […]

You are such a confusing tease

Why do you do this to me? You share these words and these visions of ourselves…  and you keep drawing me back in to you… You fucking manipulative puppeteer… Pulling on my strings to watch me dance and sing… I vowed to kick my addiction to the curb, I must be sober and clear headed […]

The forgotten one, winter’s silent twin

I love you so much. But I know exactly what I am however recognition of nouns and pronouns are facile and belie the qualia of spirit. When the seasons of the world tick and turn to remind us of the futile eternity of space and time, it is easy to forget to seek peace within […]
