science fiction pin up

you brought me here

into chaos

words that chop their own wood
stockpile their own

and while they do,

you expect me to learn how
to raise them above my own self

toss the burning chaos

minus the imagination
into a burning furnace
stronger than
steel wielded in

therefore – i will take the hardend metals
and soften them


i wish to plant a garden within your body
prove that Mars can sustain life
knowing there is a deep spring
under you and inside the rich planet of your heart

birds will fly over your body
creating lightening shadows
softening the skin
before the desert air
after the silken

and before all the chaos can separate us from either one
