Excerpt  

blue apartment

you stand in the rounded doorway
your arms upward
the walls freshly painted blue
a you aquarium
stomach wet and
blue you swim thinking
in the blue doorway

i watched you

swim
the pool in rooms
you transfixed on

the yellow lightbulb
suspended below the
surface

the faces reflected
above watching you
swimming

below the
surface towards
the yellow

bulb
your hair wet
down your

back eyes looking
not blinking
at the bulb

your arms
and legs moving
in the otherwise

dark rooms
of pools
where you swim

parade of dolls

come wide
vinyl eyes
through
the kitchen
and wandered

without bending
knees into
the living
room plastic
arms stop

motioned in
a polaroid
of tea
coffee
and plastic
conversation

tulip jar

the door to the
stove open the
engine started
inside the sound
exhausted by the
steam rising
the tulip jar
fastened on the
fan above
the ant gone
before the spinning
begins
