The Clear, Sharp Path of Knowing
My skin is diamond, she said.
My skin is the black iron arrow that points north.
Wise men say that the compass points the way home,
Across deserts of ice-white bone,
The clear, sharp path of knowing.
Wise men say that they are wise.
My eyes are glass, he said.
My eyes are cobalt.
My eyes are searching for home,
Sliced wide
Like the voices of crows,
Too-bright sun streaming down and birthing a desert
In my bones.
The sand fills us, they say.
The sand pours through our river-bed veins.
We open our mouths and it issues forth from us,
Children of the deserts that we have built
Inside ourselves.
Wise men say that this is life,
Grains of sand stacked and stacked again until they are an ocean filling us.
Our lungs put down roots and drown.
Our tongues uproot and dry out and lie silent.
This is the long road, they say.
You with the cutting skin.
You with the shattered eyes.
This is the bone road, the ice road, the cut glass road.
The carrion road.
The desert leading all the way north.
Wise men

The Dreaming
There are, within the human body,
A hundred thousand miles of dreams packed tight
Into three inches of bone
Locked tight
Between the shoulder blades.
Vertebrae protrude like black pearls
In the dark,
Asking for somebody to free them,
Crack them open,
To extract the imagos curled inside their bone barracks,
To remind them
That once
They flew.
(I saw the skeletal hands of trees
In December
Who had longed for the October snows and been left with hot dust
In their mouths.
They have known the long impossible.
They have hosted the murders
That come to watch the cars drive past.)
But this...
But this...
(I drank sticky tea in the summer and thought nothing of the unkindnesses
Around me.
They went home to their rookeries when the sun grew dark.
They left me with the glow-bugs,
The thrum and pulse of cicadas racing the deep sleep,
The bone between my shoulders humming with the end
Of an age.)
I lost the third instar of my dreaming when the sun rose.
It thought that I wanted to be changed,

All right... I wasn't able to put everything up in chronological order, so what you see over there in the "Newest Deviations" widget are not, in fact, my newest work.  They're just what I uploaded last.  If you browse the gallery, however, everything should appear in the proper order.

Webcomicker, gamer, reader. And do ignore the website button down there... I can't seem to erase it, but I also never made buttons that size for my current site. So I guess we're all stuck with it for now.
