sweetpea

she is the
epitome of me

&
i would want
for nothing
but the glance
she gives
in the pulling
away of a kiss

lost in the
mist of dizzy
head swilrlings

at golden sunrise
she is mine
in orbit

&
i take
umbrage with
no living thing
ever again

she is
the better
of me

Standard
... poetry ...

i am in the translucent
slumber
beetles have beguiled
my eyes and
sleep has departed;
for just a moment.

and a moment is all
that is needed
to build
a prison
of perchance.

i will hold out for peace-
whether in shackles
or by the shame
of Conscience;

i am perfectly between
the two worlds.

waiting to Fall

ole buttermilk sky,
last dregs of Summer
hang heavy from the leaf.

people start to say,
“I’m ready for Fall”
after the blackberries

have all burned up. wet,
fat clouds float flat-
bottomed across the

sky and we daydream
of dark nights and
cool, crunchy leaves
on the sidewalks.
