1. Multiverse

Who left the light on
after the big bang?

Who slammed the gate
and left a noise
swinging loose
on its hinge?

Is your world
leaking into mine?

I hold out
a bucket to capture
our future before
it escapes again.

2. Zeal

When she sees their faces touch
cheek to cheek, clenched

to scratched, she gives
the color green
an unnatural boost
toward a grayed-out sky.

When they say they don’t care,
she knows it’s a lie.

People in the limelight
can’t tell the difference.
That’s a question. Who still says
limelight is another.

She walks a twisted path
along a chalk cliff spine.

As night falls, her natural glow
turns mysterious and inside out.
