What Anxiety tells me

Copy of Copy of Gift

Testimony of a Door



Look at me, my

Frankenstein of a body,

genesis of Mahogany

limbs. Notice this skin,

faded casualty

of sunlight, rain,

passing age.

I’m positioned

at the onset of incident,

like battering rams

serving no-knock warrants or

fists demanding entry.

Consider me a sentry

armed with cognizance

of things concealed

behind my back, 

how closed rooms,

offices and residences deceive.

Concerning Hope

–For Anthony Bourdain

Though part of memay be breaking,I consider dayanother mercy.Night lurks so near,its call to silence unrelenting. I seize each dawning as respite, as the offeringof an unearned gift2
