and “justifies all my childhood abuse”—

i thank all for the times when I can choose

to forge a path to paying all my dues

and win for my body and mind a truce.

a gay’s wait

in the night I read the book of day,

in the day I hear the news of night;

in the night I sleep a dream of white,

in the day I live a pain of gray.

 

in the night I walk on feet of clay,

in the day I pray with hands that fight;

i wait for the distant lights of night

to grow, to gather, to grant my day.

Haiku

(for Nathalia Go)

Following a dim

Day, the night is as cold as

Grey charcoal ashes.

Dreamless sleep, I live the same

Greyness in the dawn.

 

Warm sun and cool trees,

Rainbows of fruits and flowers

Dye my dreams of day.
