possibilities
must be watered regularly,
pruned every now and

then to signal new growth, spur
imagination, sway chance

we are chiseled from

we are chiseled from
those southern
summers – hot
discipline captured
by a lone breeze
of freedom, swept
away from admonishing
looks, my brother
and i, our sun-darkened
skins parting the
symphonic waters
in the clubhouse
pool, a luxurious
drowning under
magnolia
branches –
that silver lining

what links you to

what links you to
a place, a moment,
a flavor, a shape
of a memory
polished well,
is a scoop of
felicity, a dollop
of a smile
, a
sprinkling of
silver lining

you are leaning over, a silver

you are leaning over, a silver
lining fastened to your
endless curves, a memory
clung to your back:
the broad visage of a sky wedged
between towering buildings,
a creaking fire
escape for the mornings,
and just enough
space for the nights.
i am in love
with this tunneling, this always
looking up
and into,
this falling
that never bruises
