    The solitude of uncertainty

    Fifty-fifty were
    the chances of two poets,
    alone, together.

    (She didn't even) Scream

    A girl walks at night
    a black car swallows her up
    silence takes the street

    What I fear of death
    Is not what becomes of me
    Tis what becomes thee

    Changing Tone

    Cold hands on smooth wood,
    rough fingers, tense string, one breath -
    two perfect notes.

    The wisest of minds
    happens more often than not
    to be most quiet.
