That Fishy Smell
We have gill arches.
DNA’s backup plan for us,
us on a soaking planet.
(Oh, the stupidity of clinging to soil and rocks)
We make gulp gulp sounds
swimming in embryonic fluid.
Then, we tear off our slimy parts and
“misplace” them on womb walls,
(chewing gum on plush throbbing pillows)
Or, perhaps, shove them
up our mother’s fallopian tubes.
Showing our displeasure with angry graffiti
scratched by little fingernails
in a forgotten corner of the uterus
She won’t notice anyway, and hey,
no siblings.

A Winter's Day
Dissolving snowflakes
gently vanish on your face.
The sky bears down like a timbered tree,
bright gray
shining through old-growth,
outlining every twig and limb.
Our town, hidden
from the satellites,
might not be there
once the clouds pass.

The Deck
Beatrix Alphaeus shuffled the faded deck of cards as if they might fall apart with the brush of a butterfly’s wing. After selecting four cards, she looked at them for a few moments: an eight of clubs, queen of spades, ace of diamonds, and two of hearts. Her face crumpled under the weight of her disappointment, and she slammed her callused palm on the bathroom counter. Taking a calming breath Beatrix continued with her routine, tucking each card back into the deck like a mother putting her children to sleep. She laid them on the cement floor before the room started spinning.
When Beatrix opened her eyes, a different room came into focus – a living room that looked dead. She gave a harsh laugh at her stupidity, turning her now naked back on the coy cards and raking her hand through her shoulder length hair. Would she never learn? The cards would always turn up in different suits no matter how she implored them, stroking their velvety edges and the cold, distant faces of the que

Exhibit A
You may not
side step this inquisition
and don’t even think
about turning your face
away from the child
and beady-eyed stuffed animals
sitting in judgment,
a Lilliputian jury but oh yes,
they are capable
of making a decision
about your lack of a
Evil triumphed
when a good man kept the key
and threw the lock down the drain
with the smirking fish.
They knew you would
betray me.
You may not
take secrets to your tomb,
keeping your outside mask
of loving devotion
in place for the world
while your insides rot of guilt
and don’t even think
about trying to tamper
with the evidence.
I have Exhibit A right here.
You may not
sidle away and furtively
glance at the keyhole
that Alice is spying through
and don’t even think
about lowering your head
in mock regret while calculating
your escape from
the Ivory Tower where you live.
I will not take you in.
You made your life,
now lie in it.
You may not
pretend like you didn’t
know any better
because your clandestine

A Real Apple
The dull gray-orange peel is
a battered wife. The
porous Apple rolled on its
good side to hide the
unnatural, purple
flesh. A temporary
solution. Soon, the Pears
and the Bananas will
talk. They will discuss
the probability that the Apple
rolling off the shelf was
“just an accident.”
They will discuss
the way the humans
look away – their eyes
shifting toward
the younger fruit.
The Apple will lay
on the shelf in shame
and pretend it is a real Apple,
not an imposter.
