Torn Home, Born.

When she fell, her arm came down
to her hip, to her unharmed waist
when a bruised muscle lingered from its

wounded home. A deep lost
calf spotted the water wildly,
dimmed her home.

When she fell in the bird's
bony arm, it was the first time
within a day of the fall.

Cutty Rover Rocket

The essence of tea clipper climate
"that's what we are looking to preserve."
Longer than 35 year pause.

Over achieving Mars literally uncovered
a deep furrow hit these samples
an aerial operation room but this meant one aircraft

fired two buildings before dawn
dragging timbers, iron frames limp to the Southern Seas
across the surface of the martian, Hamas and PRC,

I'm Not Ashamed

I really liked Melinda
She was uncharacteristically sassy
As I said, I wasn't bothered by her reprise

A newcomer no longer
The only thing she didn't win was the prize
As I said, I find it tough to handicap her

but obviously I'm a realist
Deliver an earth-shattering surprise tonight
As I said, put it in the back of a pickup truck

Beat the Jazz

forced to make precision passes
initial burst of intensity no surprise
fearless drives and a barrage

turnover followed turnover rotations
three different types of interference
telemetry oversensing and inhibition

the most persistent made the journey
have gone missing after being put on
a rocket to the emergency edge of space

Hotel Trauma Opportunity

the same principles of demanding accountability
held her hostage in a hotel room
slapped or pushed her before pulling out a gun

showing intransigence in a complex and dangerous war
business and financial services become our dominant
vote for an end of factional violence

to reduce violence and expand representative government
crucial time now to act while surge giving a window
          of opportunity
negotiations on terms of a final war-funding bill

And the Morning

Found a way
Of revoking
Messages of romance

Making it impossible
To be a part of
Their lives

And say something
Kind of weak
Or permanent
