Two Per Week

52 weeks in a year, 26 letters in the alphabet
… merely coincidence?

Time is money and money is naught and so
thought is time. I keep looking for a word
to rhyme.

She just didn’t happen upon circumstance
or the circumference of the happenstance.

Far from it.
Far be it for me to opine from afar. I’m
fairly sure that that of which I speak is uncertain.

Hold your tongue, I’ll hold mine
or yours if you prefer.

Oh,
how I’d
hold it

Right up front, before I begin, a preface to what
I’m about to say, a few opening remarks. But first …

I need to know,
how easy is it
to maintain that glow,
that wonderful charm,
that sense of the moon
while dancing

Hear the Sound

Heather, her heat
pure theater, pretends
she’s in throes but I know
better whether Heather is really
there or not.

T Minus 5 And Counting

The beat of the plumes of the fantail wizards
takes my breath away.

Like Hitchcock Used To Do

My poems
are like cameos

They show up
in your life
every now and then

In profile,
on a bus,
a shadow,
off far away

Lyrics that strike you
on a dare
from the ledge

Where
only
small
foot
steps
keep
you
from
fall
