The Morning After Eve

The hot water of the shower spray
feels great on her face, after
an all-night cry

Who knew such
a recurring but
fleeting thought
could provoke so
many tears?

Under the mist
she promises
herself today
will be no different

Chagall 2016


The leaves outside my window
couldn’t be more red, more red
than I have ever seen.

The sky above my head
couldn’t be more blue
yet less blue than I am now.

Chagall 2015



I felt
her kiss
even through
the bandage.

So Tight In The Chest

I don’t talk about it;
if I did I would drown.

Poem For A Song Of A Lullabye

There’s a song that she sang
when the world was down
I’m sure it went something like this . . .

There’s a song that she’d hum
when the world was right
no one ever heard the words.
