Poor travelling food
it lies on its belly
a lonely piece of banana
once whole in its safe yellow
now just a slither
two nervous silly smiles
on a peanut butter bed
it lies on its belly
black and white
kitchen tiles
under the dull pain
of a lonely banana
massacred by hunger
undressed and cut
and again in bite size
and again in my eyes
en route to my mouth
carried upon bread
an open slice
without a parachute
or friend
from crumb-covered palm
a plump thud to the ground
and there
it rests
a long way from home
a crowded bunch in the sun
now stuck among dust bunnies
a bald alien
a pale piece of fruit flesh
vulnerable to far worse hands
and beastly lands
than this
a moderately cool floor

Climbing to the mountaintop
against blinding blue skin,
I asked of her majesty
all that’s best of dark and bright
“come to me and be through my eyes”
a wish made elaborately simple
for I, to be pieced in complete.

Down my ribs, a name undone
a strong sun to comb the wind,
which waved my worn to the breeze
to ring my lover’s red memory
for what we die and live to find;
and on his cheek a kiss and chill
before our actions could speak again.

I stood above the swaying green
silent prayer and tearless breath
for my face, upon his, cast no defeat,
clouds reached over me, slowly…
with hands of showers, for sight
fire ripped down the sky and eyes
of my lover in shadow and light.

Yes to camera ops
Yes to smiling politely
Yes to previews
Yes to steel
Yes to pavement
Yes to children
Yes to staring
Yes to blinders
Yes to memories
