Silhouette to Forget

One morning To dissipate in the light Window of my life Toss and turning In bedsheets strewn to sit upright A headache slight  Una mattina, to have sworn to seen a The curtains cascade with the breeze Dressed in a long shirt with pulled down sleeves Too big and draped […]

Sorely Mistaken

The simplicity of a heart devoted Ring already binding Tightly to the aorta  Closing a valve to ink that noted The very life of finding Disconcerted in a plethora  Small grapes that sour Make fine wine for my saddest hour  Drink until I no longer cower Ask my question to […]

Back to New York

Stuck in the middle of Nevada Neon fish in the sky, flashing lights The yellow cab pulled up in a blur I said goodbye to my best friend I think he kissed me on the lips Or maybe I just imagined it Men never say I love you before goodbye […]
