+ Fav Poet



The rain startled the clouds and fell like 
a scare of possibilities. The day  toggled
from then to now like a withering widow

A flustered squirrel  sat and squirmed
and still  nibbled at a dry stump
like eliciting poetry off ancient prose

Some never knew the intent of need
others feigned disinterest in inquests
turning over their earths again and again

I read the prognosis of your vertigo
And derived a rider. That it was mere
Math to team up or to sleep in the buff 

An unpredicted  rite of passage 
after all  shenanigans stand erased
to uncover new aquifer in antique spandrel.

To  discover that the sky was never this blue.
