to heal all ills

angel of the waters
look at me
in the reflection of the pool
i see myself
who am i?
i am no one
can thou cure such ill?


Sonnet for Alice II

to slaughter this lamb
by woman's hand
none gladder I am
than be the man

to be so damned
as love does stand
I utter not a hem
let the dagger land

the tongue out
thy kiss does blow
my heart devout
the neck below
on thou holy shroud
i thus bestow

Sonnet for Alice I

to not know to love
to know not to see
a blind horse move
unable to move thee

flutter wingless dove
jumping to flee
the cliff beneath follows
the path of destiny

like orpheus below
reaching your hand
to ensure you follow
my lovers band
like the cry of crows
death is a lonely man
