Strapped into a mourning gown
That might survive our winter garden
Rebasing all these dreams
This predicament has begun to harden;
I beg your pardon
Slowly peeling off your layers
Caught us in a lightning storm
Feeling excited electricity
Between our adrenalized forms
Standing naked before the darkness
Illuminated only by midnight flashes
Perfection within a moment
Emotion dripping from your eyelashes
Flaming sauerkraut stud muffin A condensed version of radial glory Knowing full well where life begins The translucent strands of our story Calculating Parisian jazz statistics Veiled through the rummy, filtered grime Distance equals an unfettered stump When satisfaction measured in Lycra & time Logbooks; surmounting the tepid schedule All aboard the mourning run of the downtown train Sunrise catching your weary eyes Early summer rain prepositions our inaugural hurricane
*I was bogged down and couldn’t write so I just started writing nonsense until I was inspired to create something. It is what it is.
Brokenhearted on a Monday afternoon Mourning the loss of a piece of my heart The giant, jerk dog was always there This can’t be the end; merely the start I never got a chance to truly say goodbye For I never believed you’d be gone That you’d bounce back, like you always did But always isn’t now & I can’t move on I didn’t think I’d feel this damn raw I keep looking for you in the playroom Seeing if you’re causing mischief Or wandering into the girls’ call on Zoom But I can’t find you anywhere My giant dog has somehow disappeared These eyes won’t stop leaking & I know, it’s not going to be the same around here.
