Red ink tells the story

Whether fiction or non

Red traced his words

Diligently through Christ tongue

Red ink marks progression

During the adolescences

Red ink pinpoints digression

Espressos and cocoa

Fill the a.m. doors

Coffee beans and honey

Pastries and olive oil

Cinnamon incense

Fresh from the writer's novel

Lavender presence

Fresh from the poet's collection

Directions and reflections

Visions from upon

Mysteries of feelings

Solved through letters and songs

As the orchestra blends

More cultures dine in

Unfolding pads and pens

There are very few pictures of me

This is because I avoid making friends

Avoid making friends with cameras

In that order

I march toward April

Aware that she is staring

Picturing someone else

The man was a truck driver -
like he thought
the wheels could keep him
from rumbling through -
the rock that rolled from
family to frightened family
the dark rimmed glasses
that never shook when he smacked
our cheeks
already turned.

A magical moment they say.

Not fully aware

Our minds elsewhere.

An interesting kiss

Somewhat forbidden

Not thinking clear

Stop. Stop. Stop.
