Birthday Blood

A lonely birthday

Follows a new moon

Good things

Are on the way

All the horoscopes say

But I don’t buy


And I already know

A lonely birthday

Silently signals

Trouble bubbling

Underneath my skin,

Beneath a new moon

Invisible and dark

A fresh start looms

Like birth,

It bleeds


Borrowed Time

This bed belongs to no one

and everyone

who passes through

a night

a month

a moment

it makes no matter

how long

or who warms

these borrowed sheets

but even temporary

and transient flesh

dreams as she lays

her tousled hair

on a leased pillow

of a bed

a moment

that is more than

borrowed time
