Selected Writings


A Sunday email from work
is such a delightful surprise

You the ever vigilant activist
stealing away corporate copies
of revolutionary causes
linking the bi/universe to every possibility

I want to reach out of this monitor
into your arms
on to your lap
d a n c i n g -- dancing till it gets so hard
we squeal and slip down to the floor
under your desk
the keyboard falling
hanging over our heads

We don't even notice
or care
legs tangled with cords we roll
taking the phone
receiver and all with us

Our private line busy
signals to others
we are not to be disturbed
