2020-12-13 – One Candle

still plunging the
murky ponds
of past
but..

each delve yields
far less than
the last,

best i find a new
crutch to
rest

my burdens on,
or stand
taller..

to see just how
much mass
these

old joints can
handle
and..

if i don’t burst
into flame..

i’ll still find shade in
the warmth of
one candle.

2020-11-06 – Slacking Reins

i’ll be the dream,
you sniff out
schemers,

you speak out,
i’ll dream in
silence

as
believer

of applying pressure
to cracking lens
of science,

off to kaleidoscope sky’s
saturated tones
in flutters

++++

i’ve slacked the reins
on my dead
horse

as last flash of
mercy for all
that poor
beast

suffered.
