Age of Incredulity
for Crystal Fraser

Carla Bruni, who she’s like
able to assert herself to a degree,
not before imagined

runway for a model in Milan
or my arm and my palm
to journey down in fashion

palm to spin upon, head of a pin
for however many angels
to dance upon, she among them

Ocean Self
of Crystal Fraser

surface of us as placid as sea
within us, deep-sea diving, spear fishing

she surfaced last evening with a splash
fish, bloodying her spear, flapping

at times, available for handshake
even offer cheeks for kisses
but deep within ourselves
as if elsewhere, as if not there

met me last evening, at her front door
admitted into a space,
breathtaking, fascinating

in deep sea water, trouble breathing
in identity, her entity

did not mind at all, would do it again,
knowing it’s prescribed for healing,
for my soul’s salvation
