2020-12-03 – Solitary Walks

the building blocks
were nothing
but steel
rocks,

thrown by bigger
boys in their
too tight
hats,

the melting clocks
are all i can see
and the sky
talks

like she cares how clean
i breathe the air
while alone
on walks.

2020-11-30 – The Staring Stone

she’s the noisy
calm that

tames the boy
inside the
statue

when he tugs on sleeve
for a playground
run about

++++

she’s rainbows when there’s
so little variation..

in the weather of
his current
venue,
or..

condition,

boy’s the staring stone
unknown at
home-

pale in
expression.
