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


Siren Moon

The moon hangs tonight,

Pale, well formed and heavy

A Siren’s breast.

She calls to me

I ache to reach up and pluck her out

Take her from

that barren landscape.

She would fill me up, an overflowing pitcher

of spring rain,

The bittersweet swell and sting of a wayward virgin.

But her absence would leave

an inky ocean

Empty, silent

save the long dead stars
