The Relativity of Time

in our
space/time continuum
maximum warp speed
will still take
our words
an eternity
to reach
one another


New Moon (Collaboration)

After spending a decade traveling a lonesome road, I found a light. I followed that light and it led me to her love. Soon, our souls connected, our hearts connected, our minds connected. Now, our words connect. From our love, we have created and given birth to our first poetry baby. Its name is, NEW MOON. Cheers, Alex & Brandi

I broke up with the old moon last night –
it cried its stars, speckling the universe

I no longer need its light –
wane it did, out of site

And now,
as the old moon sits in the onyx sky,
alone in its cratered darkness,
being consoled by the stars –
whose eyes twinkle at a new moon –
I’ll be bathing in the love of new moon’s glow

I Exchanged My Sorrow for Joy

sprinkle the ashes of marrow
and sinew, life in
a broken urn bearing
the remains of stories, songs,
laughter, sadness

sprinkle the words of morrow
and yesterday, today
a patched heart brimming
the evolution of us bearing
the promise of new stories, songs,
laughter, love


i sit in silence
as Winter’s promise
patiently removes the blush
from Autumn’s cheeks
like Death taking the light
from a loved one’s eyes
and while gentle rain runs
quietly down the window
i realize
it’s me
fading in Winter’s grip
and it’s not raining
at all
