On One Hand

Spring Break

These days I cut my paths diagonal
through brown grass tipped with
beginnings of green
clear skies arching to embrace
cigarette smoke
under trees in their longing to touch.

I take off my shirt in the sun to tan since
you once laughed at the paleness of my skin –

and I am soon red. But not before the
white light peels my body
like a fresh orange and
clouds bow to meet me halfway –
I am angry, fair they say, hey –
you can’t condemn these spots.

snow’s here but
You are off to Mexico
you will find anthems and
warm sun rolling off your tongue while I here
make lonely scrambled huevos con frozen spinach.

Your leathered skin turns to polished brass
in the poured white, glowing
while I smolder.



  1. Mexico is where everything in my life seemd to come together for a brief time. In my mind it was because living the life of paradox is accepted and nurtured.
