overheard at the table near the door (2008)
drought broken, briefly (2012)

event horizon (2008)

What graceless art in silent darkness she 
performs with mindful hands her heart defiant 
Eyes shut tight in conjured memory 
Of youthful radiation self-reliant
Through days and nights that mingle unaware 
A supernova's luminescence fades
Its core collapse too much for her to bear
With binding energy her heart cascades
Alone in bed her universe contracts
The space between each moment stretches wide
Lost to the world she slips away abstract
Pressing inward spiral waves collide
A narrow point of light all that remains
Magnetic field burst energy regains
