Hidden

The things I make take time.

Hours, years, months,

And then, I hide

Them. Mortified.

Sometimes I don’t finish

Sometimes I don’t finish

Something I begin..

Somehow, sometimes,

something ATE it!

Under the cold

Nervous teeth under ice.

Tiny voice repeats

Chattering pins

Seized each warm hair.

Lift

Stuck in the lift again.

–  You’re meant to go down.

– I’m going up!

– You’re going down.

Restaurant

Can’t swallow frozen spit

The menu crumbles

No waiter waits

Cold salt soup steams.

Words

Words catch me when I fall

From storm to abyss

Red parachute

Floats in the void.

Would you call a spade a spade if it was Chopin?

My dad thought you could not

Play Chopin until

You fell in love.

He didn’t know.
