impact



and now

i was a part of it,
 alright

my custom fit cradle
indented formidably
into
 earth from sky
a few looked down
(three to be exact)
with
 a blend of love,hate
 
and who gives 
a damn
upon
 a pillar

yet i was theirs
creation’s foundling

loop

eye
pressed against
the glass of
fallen memory 
still i cry
had i known then?
yes
still i'd ride

laundry

          Still Life-John Frederick Peto 


well
that's my life
hung up
high
on a hook
watch it dry
while i 
go
for a smoke

time
licks its wings
slaps them down
flat 
run along now, child 
don't come back

outbound

i been
thinking 
'bout that time 
we hopped the train 
bound for Dover
just the two of us
and three cigarettes 
the night
swiss dotted
with stars
and backyard lamplight 
we owned 
the glow
of new experience
with the swagger 
of the sacred
seasoned perfectly 
i'm keen 
to believe

how
the light
this time of the day
warms my brittle 
soul small
& grey

river


Painting by Daria Petrilli via Magpie Tales 


i dig in
my heels 
feel
the pull of water
over sand
the tug of matter
over mine

and the days 
go by

will i never
get better
at letting
go

watershed



having you
beside
me
carves a river through
my catastrophe
