Thank you to CURA: A Literary Magazine of Art and Action for Publishing "Invention of Everything Else"

Thank you to CURA: A Literary Magazine of Art and Action for publishing a recent poem that will be published in CLOUD PHARMACY next year. I seem to write less and like less of what I write these days; I wonder if it is a sign of aging? However, this is a poem that satisfies me; I can read it without wincing. A strange test but it's one I use frequently. I hope you enjoy.


Once a man offered me his heart like a glass of water

how to accept or decline?

Sometimes all I speak is doubt

delineated by the double lines

of railway tracks; sometimes

I’m an incomplete bridge, crayon red Xs extending

across a world map.

A man offers me his bed like an emergency

exit, a forklift, a raft.

The easy-to-read instructions

sequestered in the arms of his leather jacket.

Sometimes a woman needs

small habits, homegrown salad, good sex.

Instead, she cultivates cats and a cupcake maker,
