dispersing & reflecting light through poetry

untitled internal blah

I plaster my wall
with children’s verse versions
of deep theological treatises
using purple crayon
and unevenly cut pictures
from magazines and prayer books
and a half used glue stick
thinking myself wise all the while
my socks are wet
from the leaking pipes
and overflowing toilet

Early morning introspection

Floaters

I find myself focusing
on the floaters:
miniscule shadows
of internal detritus
that slide into view
while I’m watching
the morning sky,
squirrels playing in the trees,
a cardinal chasing a cicada,
my Angel’s face,
the future.
