We pass by gardens.Our ankles waveAnd toes say hello.They dodge tossed mulchLike… Continue reading An August Poem: The Letter Z

A July Poem: Fireworks

Eyes can't be stained purpleOr form weeping willow fantasies.Eyes can't fizzAnd gently rock the worldInto happy stomach quakes. Eyes can't light up the sky'sDarkened kaleidoscope.Eyes can't burst above city scapesAnd flourish into colorful bombs. Fireworks. Liftoff,Then explosion.The wide gazeFollowed by a blink.There, then not.Attention absorbed,Illuminated focus. Fireworks.
