A Seven Minute Letter (And Thoughts on God)

November 21, 2011

god is a desert sand
and he is in me.
Leaving only cinders
and trembling hands.
he is in me.
god is an Idea that grows
until I’m not sure if I am
the thinker or the thought.
god is unafraid to look upon
the unknowable
and to pursue the dark places
step by stumble.
And he is in me
pushing me inside out.
The compulsion,
the doubt,
the restless passion —
is in me.

Fifths in the Hook

December 21, 2008

i slip into 5ths
like a little black dress,
polish and sparkle
edgy yet artful and elegantly simple,
it will stick in your mind
and replay time after time. 
caught in the simplest line
waves of sine
but the frequencies blend
and resolve in the end.
