The End Of Surrender
Flop forward into this half-life, fall for me. Let the roads be easy and let the easy be. It's all you can hope for when the sun's past the years and hope has half drained away. So come on and fall. In this half-light you almost look tall. Your calves like pale aliens, a waxing tide. Come on down over to my side to where the steady wet has come. It's a long time since we were set in stone. It's a long time until we're undone.

Summoning
If you can't rush, run. Spill out of yourself and down the street for spring has come. It's a riot, a full helter-skelter of blossoms and hope, a firework out in the quiet. The long lope of winter slows for it. Autumn trembles below it. A great green goddess is pushing up the horizon and they have to run to keep up or fall.

When my cat stares at me
He knows something I don't-- it's as if he were there for the building of the pyramids, as if he lived through the plagues, watching horrors unfold and cities burn while calmly licking his balls. I stare back and wonder how long the zoo animals watch each other through the bars at night before looking away. He stares at me through an elaborate diamond of indifference. I scratch his ear to break the spell, I pet him skull to spine, quickly, the way a busboy might smooth a tablecloth or brush crumbs off a chair at the end of his shift. It doesn't work, he keeps his eyes fixed on me until I feel detached from my body, numb as
