it will not to do

anylonger

to defer, or deny

what cannot be stopped

what can only, multiply.

a sad rhyme

is not the same as a lonely one

a lonely rhyme is

not one at all

Mean

ugly-head.jpg
the stasis i can’t explain
the blaring, the drums
i hear everyday
seem to sound
like nothing
i’ve heard before
and
they eat into me
with their
clock-shaped pincers
a dull stab
a retching pain
stretching, searing
oh oh
its ugly head!
move back!
hearken its rearing!
make belief
make pretend
the loss of life,
love, a friend

The Frogs In May

456964120_b908821e42.jpg
If the frogs in May
are happy
then the ones today
are sad
they are sad
these frogs today
because tomorrow
is not May
and what may
or may not happen
is unknown
but tis known
no matter what
may happen
tomorrow
May will not,
and for this
the frogs are frought
this December day.

do you need proof?
for your charades
your parades
you’re sillier
than a tomato
you wolfish,
tickled up
little anemone
there are haloes
around your ears
in the early morning
sunlight
if we lack the words
we’ll invent them

Slummertime

the funniest things
fell about us
that summer day
and like leaves,
blankets over our thoughts
a sonorous invitation
a slumbering proposal
you fell too
and i tried
yearning, burning
turning, moulding myself
into whatever shape would
hold you
and you slipped
through the nets
of my desperation
drawn,
or maybe forced out
i will never know
the cut, the severation
the simple death in separation
