Circus on the Moon
The three clowns are suspended
laughing wildly and diving into pillows
the night circus has arrived
Mixed in are cries and surrenders
who did what to whom
calls for assistance and apologies
These boys have met their match
as they march into darkness
Time for bed, monsters
we love you, goodnight
But beneath the layers of cloth
and surreptitious moonlight
their giggling betrays them
When I knew
you were going to arrive
I bought a bottle of
pink nail polish
and put it on
the name of it was
I have been writing poetry since I was fifteen, and over the years the pieces have evolved to reflect an interesting difference in perspective. Since then I have worked on a novel, screenplay and children’s book, all of which have largely been put on hold in the years since grad school, while I have been staying at home to raise our three sons.

Two and blue ballet costume to match your eyes
A sincere way of never-ending speech devoid of the letter r.
Jibba jabba jibba jabba all day long
Jumping spinning dancing singing talking talking talking
Music, songs, the same over and over
Every day, all day, until I might be driven crazy
But for the sentiments of two and blue ballet costume.
So much energy, perfect energy, perfect beauty.
A balance that is so organic yet so ethereal
I don’t want to lose you two and blue
Can’t you stay a while longer
I’ll never get to hold you this way again and I don’t want to forget what you feel like
Now, while you are still soft, before you go all angles and elbows on me.
But you’ve already moved on
That’s how it goes I guess
It’s all busy and go go go and we do forget to stop.
And so you’re off again.
I’ll visit you tonight when you sleep and I’ll see you so calm
That blue ballet costume that matches your eyes at the foot of your bed.
