2020-10-23 – Nursery Rhymes For Adults

when my fuzzed
out past first
kissed

a blank leaf
of paper

with the tip of
my green
pen,

who foretold the dam
burst or the flood
that would..

soon
follow?

i’ve spit more
venom
than

i’m inclined to
swallow..

and with mixed
and mashed
results,

i’ve embraced a
calling to..

write nursery
rhymes for
adults.

..i underline ‘with mixed results’not sure i’m yet an adult.

2020-10-11 – The Perfect Storm

i stroke ivory and
hold each note
in violet,

i roll my tongue about
my mouth and spit
out the bees..

as must be done to
clear the way
for perfect
song!

if airway gets constricted
i’ll just hack a bit
to clear it,

and as each note
falls flat, ‘
i’ll..

++++

forgive it,
and..

keep on
wailing til
i nail
it.

2020-09-30 – Graceless

i’ve a lust for loss
and costly
labor,

it streaks my screen
good and
dark,

a purge of art
for wild’s
sake

it over works
the heart,

and brightens up
my powder
face

++++

in the crags and
creases most
lacking

faith’s beauty
and grace.
