Milk and Roses

paint me flowers
without stems,

and i’ll hand you the bouquet
like i hand picked each
from my prize
garden..

arrangement clear in mind
may i draw you a
milk bath?

rose petals sprinkled?

you just laugh.

On The Run

5 Famous Prison Breaks Where the Escapee Was Never Found

thief for a long
run of

lifetimes but no heist
satisfies a dirty
drifter’s
thirst,

held the wrong
weapon to
my..

temple, saw ball’s
tangle far too
simple,

out-taught by every
school grade
knot,

thief for life
maybe
the..

jailbird
never caught.

Low Window

Trippy Taxi by Ellas-Sunshine on DeviantArt

saw my likeness in
cave sketches,

and bread crumbs
dropping all
over the
map.

tiptoe along
a fold

paper crinkling-
scrunched up nose,

fingers shielding
cheeks from
night
air

flooding..

driver’s window
cranked
low.

Frozen Pole

A Christmas Story Tongue Stuck to Pole Painting by Brett Hardin

tethered to a frozen
pole on first day
of winter

north wind’s got a dry
sense of humor,
no clemency..

for those lost
in throes,

i’d look up but
tongue’s
stuck,

harder i pull, the
worse tissue
rips and

sharper i shriek
at helper
team,

here to offer aid
though the
snickers

behind shields
of fingers

now scraping under
my last layer,
soon..

i’ll start
seeing stars,

‘less i find my
way out
of

blind boy tunnel
caving under
weight

of its own
snow..

tethered stiff
to frozen
pole.

Strummer

Best Jazz Guitar Albums: 75 Essential Listens | uDiscover

i’ll strum it out
for you,

if mind stays open
to my out of
tune,

deaf moon don’t
mind but if
you do..

i’ll thumb a bit
softer to
ease
the

onslaught on your
pin drop,

not too proud
to please,

flawless to
a fault,

the heart only
your shot
stops..

line after line to
cross your
fears,

each note, for
naught.
