A slow evening. Watching the planes overhead, Break the deep purple, Break the zen. I became enthralled, By the things she said, “Hello, How are you?” So enraptured. A soul, so beautiful, Her heart, so gifted, My heart was, unknowingly, Captured. Even if it’s only a romance, Watching her smile, That’s all in my head. […]

A star packed sky dots the scene, Hand in hand, a quixotic dream, Jumping out of a Friday night, And onto the movie screen. Speed it up, slow it down. We glide across the shoreline. We out race the light, We love in never ending night! For It was written across the heavens, In the […]

And If there is a God… Somewhere way up high, Way beyond the sky, I will one day be free, Be free to just be, Feeling good, grinnin’ into the breeze. Running free through the night air, Escaping the mental trap house, Only then slightly aware… Of the fear spliced into, programmed into me. Til then, […]

Fingers snap, hands clap, the melody wanders into the room. Heart rush, guitar crush, hidden in the corner with whom? Pecan brushed lover, set against a faint gray sofa, faint gray walls. From over, near the door, to the middle of the floor, the melody crawls. With spider web vibrations, on a line to my […]

Moonlight travels, The shadows, Draw to a close. Ceiling fan whirs, The restless stir, Resisting repose. I blend into, Merge into, Bring heat to the dark. The sheen on a Moreno hue, Resisting dissolution, Into the fading light, Holding you tight, Into the late hours, Into the maturity of the night. The magic in your […]

Like attentions fixed upon Winter, Floating to the ground. Creeping madness imagining snows melt, Cooling the brow. Found floating in the sharing of thought, Finding like rest in burial sought. Cupping handfuls, Bathing in the abstraction for hours. The nuanced intentions, Sesame the arms of flowers. Toe touching head, A still of curved form. Flipping […]

When I get old there’s gonna be a lot of shit that I’m gonna just stop caring about.  There’s so much wasted time, I could prolly free up and put to better use.  I’ve already identified quite a few things and listed them out. Hmmm.  Might not be a bad idea to get a head […]

The candle lit, the flame dances atop the wick, dancing between the winds, pushed between pursed lips.  The arcane spoken word, the sunshine, bringing life to those without it.  The twist, thirsty and peckish for more like a deep pull, but settling for just a sip. On October the fifth, I climbed into my mind […]

Four chairs. One plate, One fork. Two chairs. One napkin, One filled glass. One chair. A microwave meat pie. Camping out across the table, is the noisy white conversation, of too many red lettered bills and junk mail. The TV, slightly out of frame with a dark, blank screen, chattering away into the background. He […]
