The Noble Art of Dismantling Rain

freedom is 
an elephant in a barrel
an atheist & a goldfish
playing pool 
on a street corner that 
doesn’t exist

time is
the calculus of laundry 
strung up from 
the teeth of a piano
soberly searching 
for an antidote to rain

a dumpster in paradise
is also a primordial desire
to dismantle what 
we cannot change

a bird of prey 
who zig zags in darkness
is never more terrible
than the fear of being born

or a rocket ship 
that suddenly remembers 
it was once a handful of daffodils
with eyes stretched to infinity
