Another Sonnet Written at a Coffee House

You sink into the bosom of the chair 
And wonder if I too once sat amidst 
The chattering, white coffee sipping fare— 
The lonely writers ‘pining for a kiss. 

Did I peer out over the porce’lain mug 
And purse my vulgar mouth over the lip 
My eyes a’roll behind my glasses’ fog 
My writer turning phrase and spinning quips? 

Did I curl my toes under my feet 
Threading my fingers ‘round the scolding cup 
My yellow molars grinding to the beat 
Of meds-a-glee and glutt’nous caffeine ups? 

No— 
I didn't’t sit cross-legged and introverted— 
I flipped through glossy pages and consorted.

Silent Muse (sonnet)

A wooden road of thought so deeply grained
with ruts beneath the shudder of my pen
it's inkless falterings my hand stills pained
in search for words that may not come again.

These random slivers of such dense suspense
have sewn my hand unto my sagging shoulder
the wretched shivers quiver so intense
it melts my fragile muse in dipping solder.

Distracted by this torture's ruthless pause
with eyes I skip the silver disc of night
and listen for the ripples of applause
while darkness falters with the dawning light.

Another wordless day has idled on, 
again I find the midnight gone with dawn.
