  1. The Tears

    His heart is broken
    her love has faded
    there's no returning
    the tears have come

    He tries to keep her
    she turns her back
    there's no love left
    the tears have come

    His soul is suspicious
    her story sounds foul
    there's something amiss
    the tears seem forced

    He questions her motives
    she refuses to answer
    there's someone else?
    The tears seem forced

    His mind tries to focus
    her tactics too rehearsed
    there's no other choice
    the tears aren't real

    He closes the chapter
    she packs up her bags
    there's no sense in staying
    the tears aren't real

  2. The Act

    The glam girl
    looks to her devoted

    Oscar, crying
    the beads of glass


    From her tears of joy
    and ego being conflicted

    From the act
    as if the art she creates

    Is as real as the wetness
    in her tears

    Or, is it a fake rendition
    to her craft?

    She acts as though
    the truth is in her heart

    But really, it is
    all about the lie

    Without breaking
    character

  3. My sadness throttles darkly
    Mammoth yet small
    Rips open my heart
    Hangs me upside down
    Rattle knocks my mind
    Til my innards tumble out
    Then in silence I distill
    into timelessness.

    Explosions halt my breath
    Its my drunken neighbor
    Wretching stomach contents
    Again.
    Alert. Silent. I hover
    Something different happens
    My edges begin to blur
    Into my neighbor’s
    Until her misery is mine.

    I am now suspension bridge
    Hanging over heavy water
    I am no longer one body
    As suffering floods in
    From far world direction
    I’ve never been to this place
    But I know it’s safely home.
    I am hologram now
    With each crystal tear.

  4. Capture, Auto-Caption, Unwanted Close-Up

    twin
    black anemones tilt horizon
    beads glass blown furnaces of the collapse
    her plastic eyes give gray

    scale landscape
    shape and ridge of
    nose thrust diagonal
    hold beads

    glass blown furnaces
    of the collapse
    every escape
    glass breath among ambush

    and ridge of nose thrust
    diagonal
    hold the clerk nervously
    staples

    to your writ every escape glass
    breath among ambush
    every freedom
    fundamental

    eclipsed the clerk nervously staples
    to your writ merry
    go round oil spill
    pores and sea

    scape every freedom fundamental
    eclipsed
    twin black anemones tilt horizon
    merry go round oil spill pores and seascape

    her plastic eyes give grayscale landscape shape

  5. Man Ray Glass tears

    clump lash
    hide the tears
    from her eyes

  6. I put you back on the shelf, doll-face
    because it wasn’t working anymore.
    In the hot spotlights you had stage fright,
    I am not your agent, Hollywood girl. Your
    eyes became blank, like your life was
    hollow. It was smooth porcelain skin,
    that seems dramatic and believable,
    glass tears on hardened cheeks.
