Jewish women are warm. Her visiting daughter

leaned in, kissed her elderly mother on the lips.

At a  train station reunion emotions unprocessed

I said “First kiss me on the lips”,

She made a bit of a face, but smooched,something

my mother would never want to do, ever.

The rain was fervent and made a river of our afternoon.

The Carp swimming in that mere foot of a pool seemed

suffering to me but she felt that it is what they are used to.

She drank warm saki and cringed at my telling

of painful memories and the exposed nerves.

I had warned her I was bloodied and fresh.

Coming of Age


John Green makes my inner teenager smirk

Not making any excuses for loving Q

What’s happening to the sterotypes

Hollywood makes for young women?

They cast the model who has none

of the physical traits of the written character

but at least she has a book prop at the end

Speedy Recovery


This red rental car is mocking as a symbol of this surreal convalescence

Thrown into the mix of muscle relaxant fogged brain, is real insanity

Gas lighting is a word I taught her and her pilot light is inconsistently

flickering real and then imagined making a physical connection to

paranoia and delusion in her unreachable work location near a bus stop

“SONIC” I scream on the phone to my friend.

“She will never survive a day”

“They named it that because they want Fast!”

The generation born in the 50’s ruined the economy

she rants. There are no jobs except making slushes.

In My Blood


Nerve pinched sent such pain throbbing, twitching, stabbing

It’s a 10

Yes I want it IV



She drove me home and held my hands and prayed for Jesus


muscle relaxant


Sleep for the first time in 4 days and then a shower and relief

Hidden behind the calcium dusts

a mariners’ beacon of great strength

floods the turbulent stormy waters

where your small boat capsizes

rescuing your hopelessness with

one more master piece of impressions
