Eye Motes

1
His eyes were like branches underwater.

2
One moment the money is soft, the next it is cyan.

3
The sea where I stopped and you went on.

4
Australia is like an angry helmeted man on his back.

5
Water drains from her daily bath. The sound of dog nails on the floor.

6
Bring the steeple indoors; make two smaller ones.

7
Covering the porch, a new reach of the Nooksack River.

8
A homeless woman by the post office with her monocle.

9
An iron garden table in the ocean.

10
On the horse’s forehead, a shillelagh.

11
I have been writing with such a small part of my mind. I poisoned the ants good.

12
Antidote for honesty: a necklace made of shoulder bones.

13
The die back in the garden won’t wait for Easter.

14
On my desk: a speaker cord like an orphan pig tail, a stapler, some old mints.

15
A volcano’s worm casting gave us freedom.

16
A kiss of blind tape where the two ends meet.
