Chandelier

hanging from 
a brass chain
the electrified
octopus
dressed in crystal
turned into
a chandelier

hanging from
a brass chain
the spider
had a similar idea
but the chain 
turned into
a noose




The Blank Wall

I saw a blank wall
behind the open door
and said, Why is this?
before realizing
that an observation 
can turn myopic.



Army of Suits

an army 
of suits
a briefcase 
& blackberry 
in each hand
their heads 
identical 
emoticons  
teeth gritting
under smiles
