Refrigerator

do you ever make sounds without

(the) tongue pressed

placed

up flick

concave

what is said inbetween
phrases

stands still walks on ice

— These shapes come
in from
the ocean keeps

following last time
we went we were here
with out waves
and a dear/deer followed

–holding back words from white privilege
building walls plenty of white walls in this world

the ocean is close
so far
i can’t hear the salt shake

–ignorance flows out, streets are closed
gutters flush decay
leaves a stench

–call maintenance to neutralize the mold
creeping

–behind death
a freezing afterlife

that’s why it’s so cold!

There may not be sightings
but i feel them
an energy flickering through

making space

All that’s left is an empty bowl
a bell ringing
silence

If we were conscious of how we bend
(but never break)

until the moment when
an urn is found in the recently auctioned condo

inside a birchwood urn
inside a blue velvet bag

the tag number reads six numbers and
there are no next of kin

When a husband leaves

A man’s dying wish:
to die by the river

won’t you take me to the river
bend
(but never brake)

please leave me by the river

my soul to take
me to the river
bed

i will sleep forever
