Frameless Sky – Issue 9


summer haze
the birdbath
in constant ripple


our vows…
a breeze ripe
with dogwood


water lilies
how my daughter cups
the sun



i remember being lead
my hand on her shoulder
her hand on his


my eyes opened
to the secret forest


and i drew my first breath

still better
in my memory
first kiss



As Is

It’s been months since I’ve been alone. Truly alone. Lying on the hotel bed I want nothing more than to soak in my music and let thoughts that have been caged up for years come and lie with me.

remembering my ex




After several months of communicating only in French, the mother turned to me and in perfect English says, “could you watch the children so we can go Christmas shopping?”  I couldn’t have loved her more.

wheels down
all the streets



Three Years Later

i watch you, watching me

past journals



way of the river


in a drawl like the sun


she tells us where
to get the best crawfish


we don’t have
the heart to tell her
we’re vegetarians


unshaved legs
the furtive glance
of my grandmother
