Premium Member December Makes Way for January
Bitter cold creeps in through my bedroom window.
Wind chimes clang on the porch to announce her arrival.
December making way for the nuances of January.
I am layering up.
Two pairs of socks.
Two pairs of slacks.
Fluffy hooded sweatshirt 
Over t-shirt and sweater.

Premium Member Eavesdropped And Damaged
Wicked whispers, like hisses,
slithered throughout the office
when the disliked departed for the day.
Rotten hysteria blared
like beastly blasts.
Louder their voices leaped
as they could see that she was gone.
On and on they'd bleep
about her crazy ways,
her annoying voice,
her ogre odor,
her misfit outfits...Read More

Premium Member Scented Leaves
Crisp ...
You lay like solemn ashes
'Neath glass ... spotless, sacred
Dried to bright hues ...
The shades of her lips in chill autumn air
(Winter, whisp'ring soft)
Edges crimped ...
Like the hems of her pleated tartan skirt
You are the vestige, precious
Of a moment ...

Premium Member My Go-To Color is Neon Orange
Orange is my go-to color because I look smashing in it
Not anymore, but I used to when I was twelve
I had the most darling orange sweatshirt 
Probably disintegrated now after being sliced, washing cars.

I am an artist; and neon-orange is...Read More

Autopsy of someone I used to know
Autopsy of someone I used to know

And her wide eyes stare at mine.

A Morning in May
If I were to tell you
Of a Saturday in May,
Of lying in bed as the sun came up
And brightened the room;

If I were to tell you
Of the fluttering curtains,
Of the cool air flooding in
And how I curled up beneath the...Read More

Premium Member Selling Door To Door
Do you remember being an optimistic fifth-grader, selling door to door?
Flower seeds?  Candy bars?  Potato chips? House plants?  Tickets to the fifth-grade Thanksgivings feast?
Adding up the prizes in your head.

Hey, no fair! We don’t get to wear our pajamas!

I am wearing a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt, and pink corduroy pants.

Did you think these are my pajamas? I ask her.

Age five nods her head.

Did you sleep in them? She queries.

I laugh.

A thousand sunset nights
Dark shadows on the ground
Can't drown out the light
When you were around
Your voice from back then
Still whispers in my ear 
Girl, you in my sweatshirt 
The thought brings a tear
And though we're far away
In my heart you...Read More

Premium Member Wild Pirate Woman Being Demure
I'm sitting like a fat gray cat in the sun,
watching my forest gently dance, 
The wind is barely breezing, 

The bird songs are the only sounds
I hear except for the running water
of my fountain and my wheezing.

I have cut my...Read More

Thank you for Your Interest
Why do you write?
Says the boy in the sweatshirt
What will you write?
Asks the woman on the stage
How will you live?
Asks the sensible man
Will you be famous?
Asks the child again.
Do not ask, I do not know
Thank you for your interest, though.

When February Feels Like May
When February feels like May
And skies are blue instead of gray,
We flock outdoors, but do not know
Which way our clothing needs to go.

Winter jacket? Much too warm;
Lots of beads of sweat will form.
Sweater? Sweatshirt? Poncho? Fleece?
Doubts won’t let me leave...Read More

Premium Member A Bird and A Boy

      One day as a boy, I went down to the sea,
   Clambered o'er rocks way out to the bluff,
 Stopping to search the tide pool for shells,
Senses awakened by strong, briny smells.

I Gave My Love a Cherry
I gave my love a cherry 
And asked him to bake a pie
I washed the dirty dishes
And told him he could dry
I carried up the laundry
To see if he could fold
I took his favorite sweatshirt
And told him I was cold

Date Night
I want a date
Where we start
And become age old
Friends by the end of it,
Not a
Love story
In its entirety
Before we’ve even

I want some
At god-awful jokes,
Coffee (caffeinated)
At 3 in the morning
When we watch the sun
Come up,
Dawn breaking on a night
Well spent
Without sleeping.

Premium Member I Let My Mind Go Out To Play Today
I let my mind go out to play,
And in jeans and sweatshirt in a forest lay.
Spring branches arching so high above,
Sunrays literally touching my toes.

I saw a bird of many colors,
An eagle looked down at me,
Heard the rustle of little...Read More
