Exciting Prizes to Be

New Writing: Volume One

This call of yours now
has just put me in some place
I’ve never been before
and I’d rather not be in ever.

It has changed perspective,
which was iridescent
and shimmering with
chances and possibilities.

The land turns gray
when the sun falls down.

A simple definitive negative
has been uttered between distances
and erased a line
I never knew didn’t exist.

This changes everything.
My brokedown palace.
My shambles.
My dark and stormy night.

This should have happened later.

I wish you had waited for later.

handmade books.
