Dedication

During National Poetry Month 2014, my poems were dedicated to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.  Certain place names are real; nothing else is.  Scroll down, start reading with “At the Dong Cheng Factory” — and work your way up . . .

Here, the Search

Stops.
Leaking, invisibly
an evaporating cloud.

I Am

Where you are
carried past
you, past

you are. I am cold. I am dark. I am
you, falling. I am taking you in-

side. I am carrying you
under the ocean
inside.

Ghazel of Shards

Dear ones, might a sign appear, if only a shard?
Even if sheered from nothing, a shard.

50 days slipped safely past
you who have disappeared—bequeath a shard.

Wherever you flew, wherever you fell
Dear lost ones, just a shard.

Your spectral lines, your memories, even your
fear clinging somewhere. However sharp, a shard.

Do you remember us?
We wait here. Even for a shard.

If the Sky Shuts Its Eyes

The clouds will start turning black. We should not expect
to see down. Through

nothing
comes nowhere. Yet someone
will expect everything. Maybe plan it. Or just
won’t care

if the co-pilot picks up the phone.
If anyone hears.

When You Ran Out of Air

Sky let you fall.
Ocean swallowed you.

Ocean took you in.
Sky set you free.

Sky let you.
Ocean swallowed.

They Say

I only have brothers. But when the last night
tears loose, flies

blind through the smoke beyond this
realm of air, my sister

will sit with me. Will stitch
ruffles in my ashes, comb my hair, part

the ether between this world and all that —
pull me through properly. She will.

Everything Is OK Now

There may be debris. It may
be our debris. The debris that may be
may have washed up on a shore. Maybe
in Australia. Maybe more debris
on more than one shore. Possibly also
elsewhere. Wherever it may be, it has been
secured. No one will see it. No one will
find us. No one will know.
