Two poems by Colin James

EATS AT THE FABRIC OF

My dirt bike is launching.
It carries us along to the
impractical yet necessary,
parenthetically pent up.
These video eyes are trail markers.
Here tuned-in steel cavorts
like masculinity. Altogether
preferable to a narrative.

BALACLAVAS ARE TO BE WORN IN THE KITCHEN

Vinegar in the poached eggs,
lime slices ere my eyes.
Nice bumping into you at breakfast.
A one bathroom limit was never in question
two or more an indulgence.
Place your suggestions in the bucket
aesthetically formal then forgotten,
hidden by a stained white parchment.
Let us enjoy the sighs of discovery
or leave them to mature.
