2021-01-10 – Fruits of Labor

not sure how they
found us,

unexpected were
the droves of
wagons..

soon as vast land
thawed and
shoots

shivered through,

can’t blame the
huddled, i’m
troubled
too..

waiting, knees
on flattened
sands

for
fruits

slow to ripen in
idle hands.

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.

2020-11-15 – Speak of Love

show me this true love
of which you
speak..

seems the version
i’ve coughed
up..

is pretty weak,
even for
me..

+++

all my writings and
pontifications
on love..

to deflect the
real thing,

in avoidance of
that clammy
handed..

first dance
feeling.
