UnSeen Works

A place to park my ideas,
     some created but unshown (below),
     some unexecuted...
     and some still in the development phase...

Embrace the phoenix
as it releases you
as the desert stars crawl
generously to your window,
big as mountains.
Urgent as the saguaro
gripping you,
insistence prickling forth
larger than stars.
Let go as if the choice were yours,
as if mere Desire ignites the pyre.
Promise anything
as the needle pierces your thigh.
The twinking stars bursting.
