Heroes: Kill Me Again'Do it,' she said, settling herself on the table. Typically forthright, she had made a medical couch of a dining table.
He lifted the scarf. The paisley whorls looked like teardrops, not the prosaic weavings of a disinterested machine, programmed long before it ever encountered the cotton. Folded into a thick and long rectangle, the scarf resembled a bandage, the tears of colour lined up in orderly ranks. Not that Claire would notice the irony, of course. He smiled a little at that, secretly, where she could not see him. She was vivacious and young and the word perky ran uneasily through his mind but he doubted she saw the deepness and double meanings of the world around her. He doubted she saw the order and chaos of ordinary things. Every inch a cheerleader, like a flower newly opened thoughtless, comically serious, irresistible in her perfection. He thought of daisies, freshly opened to the morning sun and then brought the cloth down over her mouth and nos
Night MigrationWalking through the darkness,
a cotton ghost,
a blind-bird stick figure,
arms raised like the hopeful come for healing.
No light to guide you. No light at all.
The night is a softness that sucks in sound.
The night is a translucent cloth that allows in air
but not certainty. Not faith.
The carpet beneath your toes,
moth-furred beneath your shuffling toes.
The wall sudden and cold against shoulder, hip, thigh.
The paper’s pattern turned to something cold.
The plaster unyielding behind thin skin,
the plaster all you feel, cold all the way down,
and the skin meaningless.
Your skin meaningless. The thud of your heart
and the slow, short intakes of breath
and the bones beneath your skin
all that you are.
Until you reach the ark of light.
Until you reach an island, and fall,
safe in my sleeping arms.
AndromedaAmongst the darkened skies
Brightened by only starlight
Field & Sea.
Gravity is only an afterthought
Hilltops become ladders into the sky while
Inferior planets stare down upon the Earth
Jealous of such simplicity yet contemplating grandeur.
Keppler only thought of science
Linear, elliptical, movement…
Mythology had no such thoughts
Neptune & Nebulas both inhabit space
Orbiting across the lonely darkness
Probably never worried about mundane things
Questioning their existence
Right now or for all eternity such as us.
Shooting stars make us joyful while
Terminator is an otherworldly spectacle
Unknown to all those hidden in their houses
Various stars await us outside
Waiting to play like we did before
Xenagogue & inviting
Youthful but ancient curiosities.
Zenith induced euphoria continues until daylight…
