Muscular Pain


All hearts are this, she said - quietly revealing
Mine will break yours, flexing and heaving

Brother Peace (1)

6am tennis thumps darklit dawn
Muscle, ozone, sweat, jokes - all long gone

Grandfather Dies

At four in the morning
Gone, without warning

Otis Says Jump

In case of fire donít use the elevator
Use the stairs
In case of heartbreak
Neither?

2. How important is length/ duration in a poem?

3. Do these communicate anything in terms of emotion and/or experience to you?
