I was thinking about

you are too loud

in my silence,

You’re a cross

between a rock star

and a supermodel

as if spring is in the air

when winter has a few songs

left to play.

I will admit

I do not fall into cliques

or rules

because I make my own

and burn them after.


I pull back for my own sanity.


Understand you are so wild

that no one

can hold you down for long.


Lordy, you are raw talent

combined force

of a drink and a coffee

of a poem

you read a thousand times

a song you can never

stop listening to

and the car crash

you relive over and over.


Lordy, Lordy

I make up words


and some people call me a savant.


Shut off the world news

and caress my disturbance

it cannot bear concealment.


I recited this to my husband

and he nods his head

because he was watching me write it down

shook his head

and said

you are so fucking gifted.


I am envious.


Don’t be, I said. I’d rather sit and watch

the news and not listen to

my mind
