For the Times They Are

I dreamed once
I dreamt precisely

the guests went
as crows flew
the shortest distance 
between two points

essentially synapse

and paradise
is not all 

among the candles
in the dark
deep in pinewood
I am kindle

blessed are they
who withstand the wind shift

I grow weary of the couplet, such a shame

the stakes are high, way above
our heads – scratch that –
my head, an aftermath befitting,
a prequel to an epilogue, a rattle
of prose chugs along, not waylaid and
cannonballed. Sometimes you just got to
get up hill a bit and start to tilt down crest
allow yourself to roll to the finish, pick up steam
as the contour of the line permits, it’s a coaster
works on gravity, life’s a carnival.

To Be Titled

There are no words

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
