2020-09-14 – Slow and Low

crowds of words force
their fury through
the picket
signs,

in beeline to the front,
an affront for
show,

then out the mouth
they fly..

off to point and jeer
at another street
stabbing,

or to seek out and cheer on
weeds in growth,
in need?

who knows..

++++

but i do love the sting
of each breeze your
tongue tease
s

when you whisper
my name..

low and
slow.

..then once more.

2020-09-11 – Squeak a Nose

let’s squeak the nose
of every Krusty
clown,

til we flip all their lip
smeared sulks
upside down,

the family circus crowd
throws their tent
pitch voices

through a salty veil
of sugar pink
popcorn,

candy apple melting
off its swizzle
stick,

++++

oh, dolly dearest
you better lick
it up quick
.
