Mourning Exercises


Breaking Daylight

Across America new electrical spikes
between five and seven before
the rest of the house is up
between fear and worry
peace and quiet
our bodies awaken
earlier and earlier
yet sleepwalk all day
through torture and death
through spying and lies
we stagger halfhearted
running through habitrails
jumping only to rest





Below Sea Level

Crashing against rocks
without remorse or end
forceful vocal flood
Why not? You must! I can't.
Smashing, destroying torrent
recedes into murky plunge
Below cool pink coral
Becoming a distant hum
Deepening dangerously farther
silent caverns beckon
walls like enveloping arms
peaceful soldiers standing guard
Why not? No more! I can't.
