    Selected Poem
Voiced Desire
I'm finding myself
face to face cold sober with
that recklessness formerly used only
for drunk phone calls
made in accusatory voices at inappropriate times;
I'm looking in the mirror seeing poems in my cheeks,
freckles and eyelashes combining
to diagram sentences that keep me up late,
watching for the sun,
naming the clouds in an ecstatic fit of words
and my need and the getting; well,
it's always better to get
than to give to a wall of silence, now isn't it?
Third grade morality plays be damned.
This is no place for kids dressed like pilgrims
or cardboard cut outs of trees;
no time to spare on learning my lines
when I haven't written them yet.
I was taking this somewhere,
there was a lead to follow but it's faded,
bleached out by the bright lights of squirming giggly and panting brokenly for   more.
