He scratched a stubborn, stubby beard with clipped, dirty fingernails, his yellowed eyes watching the, world outside with a bleary, diluted expression. His black, scraggly hair, sprinkled with grey and white, jutting out in odd places. His other hand rested against a soft stomach.
The garden had been long-unkempt, neglected. It sprawled with sloppy vines, untrimmed rose-bushes, and dead and dying trees. A few stubborn weeds survived, bright garish dandelion heads holding their own, protruding between cracks in the cobblestone pathway.

ignites in moonlight tonight
I must thank you for creating
her tangled fingers' slow pace
through the handsome rain Her
trochaic kinesthesia to rhythms
in Stravinsky's The Rite of

for us to love you Yahweh
Tumbling clumsily down hills
of sheets into perpetually
immutable silence I could love

practicing on this Savanna
for days and months Lost in
her crystal canvas Rolling crests
and troughs And when she touches
me Oh fair Lord I'm dragged into
your city past Gethsemane's
pulsing green and gold
Please hold us together
under this luminous stretch
Oh Father We are live
unclothed Our reflections awash
with the skin of your sun
Keep in Touch!
