Poetry Showcase from K Weber


I am standing, sleeveless,
wind-soaked night-
gown. To dream
myself, dislodged, in this 
is the dream. 

a lower spine will be

My body 
has become a tiny
house parked
in the mud, west. Too
many visitors. 

noon greyscale
creeps like fingers
in congress
with music-
less piano. Keys 
bleed as I worry

I’ve lived
long in the brain
of the med-

say say say

the way
the weight
gives wave

a feeling
of failing
fanning the fame

they hold
me, whole
like home

someone reads
and it's real
like red

my fingers
on the flanger
while we figure


for thought
tw/cw: disordered eating

cram-cheeked at the ice-
box getting warmed every night

by the light of the refrigerator. 
the cabinet creaks someone

awake and aware but nothing’s 
said. stomach has its wars. brain knows

sleep knows better. this battle
bulges the belt-line. jaw aches

in taste while hot tears 
won’t cry. no sorry when the lesson

unlearns how to swallow. slow-
spoken at the table as grace

on the in-breath as bellies 
mimic fullness.
