Broken Sounds

2021-07-05

upstairs,

the hemlock

of heavy steps

pauses with

a pinch of passion,

 

rose words,

cactus response

 

breaking

litters the floor

like triangles

colliding,

 

and then,

silence

 

as night tempts

tragedy into

exhaustion

with the promise

of morning,

and nothing else

Seeing Her

2021-08-06

she was an

empty field,

a song

played out,

a fire

in passing,

washed over

with the

appearance

of a lesser

fashion,

pushing aside

the remains

of dreams and

unchartered

promises,

standing

with open hands,

a survivor of

seasons past

Reaching In

2021-08-06

the silence

between

   a breath

 

casual eyes

creating avenues

 

reaching in,

touching layers

   buried

 

retrieving the

least part

of what was

great

 

burning

   love letters,

   old photos

 

while tripping

over the

   ashes
