by A. Marie

She swims the night; the street is her sea. The street is her wave,
that clashes and eats at her tired soles. Unmarried women

shut up in their homes, rectangular mirrors smiling in their eyes.

impossible,
what a waste
of a body,

THE LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE

BY CHARLES ROBERT LINDHOLM 

How free are the free
How brave are the brave

To repeat our errors, again?

Freedom

very thought

As if a pull of the gravity,
yet a freefall 
from the sky…

Iron, Undress and Grow in the Garden With Me

by A. Marie

Iron of dress, without meadowsweet tenderness,
Give up your ghost to me now, and we shall all bow down weeping.

Pick up my boots and walk
To the lavender-times, when I lived by my nose,
When I touched my crown into each rose and
Loved red.

Steal me outright, and collide me with
A forest, a field, a turbine blade

The Secrets Within

Freedom, an open sky
Of layers of walls, scaled
Slippery and rigid
Each wall, made of freedom

Love, a soft bed
By needles of grass, touched
Pricking and sensitive
Each blade, made of love
