2020-11-22 – Nude Perch

a nude perch
looks worse

come dusk when shadows
shun their call
to sleep,

hope’s but the feathers
scattered in
with

a bony winter
to come,

who will notice if
my hair goes
missing?

and who will
pretend to
listen?

++++

nude perch looks
so much
barer,

when i’ve had too
many hours
to care.

2020-10-24 – A Cold Noon in June

whisk me somewhere
bright, and..

i’ll try my dearest to
make the trip
feel nice,

at least until
we feather
down

on icy feet atop
a blistered
beach

buried in a
blizzard’s
random
freak,

it’s a damn
cold noon
in june,
and

my drink’s
weak.

2020-10-22 – A Tool in Hand

lover, today in
some home
repair
shop,

i stumbled across
great deal
on..

a new stud
finder,

so i bought
two:

one for baby
sister,

one for my
mother,

and yes, one for
you too,
love..

and you know
i’m bad

at numbers
now..

can anyone hear
my inner
clock

counting
down?

2020-09-19 – Blushing Blue

come on drift in
on daylight’s
dreamy
coast,

but your tattered kite
crumbles into sky’s
churning
sea,

while arms fanned,
i’m here on beach
ever waiting
for you,

in the heart of
blushing
blue,

where every bird
in palm tree
is lonely..

++++

and the palm
trees too.
