You know
you are living
at the moment
a thorn tears
your flesh.

***

You stalk
the sublime
like an
expert hunter
yet still
she slips
away.

***

Poems domestic
or house broken
only fill empty
lines with nothing.

***

The best poems,
immediately explosive
as orgasms.

***

Making art is
treading water
until you can’t.

***

Make one
moment durable.
Your work
is done.
