2020-11-02 – Forest Crashers

drunk on delight,
spilling our
wants..

all over patch
of shaggy
grass,

we ambled up
a gravel
path

to the sugar
shack
that

rested hungry,
tempting
only
us

forest
crashers,

writhing snakes on
a crunchy leaf
mattress

in the heart of
the woodsy
clearing

to burn off a
little day
stress.

2020-10-18 – Rusty Harvest

i welcome another
rusty chestnut
harvest,

i hope you brought
your own pumpkin
and carver,

my edge is duller
than a debate,

sorry, i’ll cost you more
than scam sold
as rebate,

but if you could
go on not
hating
me

for just a little longer,
i say we take a
swing and
crack
up

this
winter.

2020-10-10 – Empty Seat

i’d sooner be the
fruitful tree
than the

admirer, as deep
as i admire the
strength in
your..

boughs,

can’t seem to
reach them like
i used to,

won’t you bend to
meet me like
you used
to?

++++

i’d sooner be
swinging tire
than the
tree..

and today,
i’d rather just
sway in your
breeze

seat resting
empty.

2020-09-15 – Chestnut, Amber and Rust

is that maple
stripping for me?

already?

that’s hasty, we
only just
met,

though it does make me
blush in those toasted
chestnut tones
of amber..

++++

and rust, while
my roasting
chimney
puffs.
