2020-11-24 – Another Blue Balloon

let another blue
balloon go just to see
where it would
up and drift
off to,

then i reached up for
you like you weren’t
already part of a
new family,

my feet are blister
stones and all i
want is to be
the air

wherever you
breathe it
free.

2020-11-23 – Windy Plains

i feel the winds
of winter
plains

and hear their grudge
whistle through
the old barn
door,

tug those hand me down
covers tight against
your core,

and i’ll do the best i
think i can, i
know i
can..

distract you from
the chills of
shared

unrests blowing in
heavy from
the west,

i taste the winds
of winter
plains..

it’s those blasts of fresh
that keep our
thoughts
sane.
