Lonely January
Grey, bleak, frozen
Somnolent depression
And cold dreams

Oh, Spring
Where art thou?

We are strangled friends.
Shallow and tangled around
our hellos and goodbyes
A phatic lie
Of small talk

Minacious flirt
Flouncy youth tramping
In women’s territory
Wedding rings concealed
In pockets

Orectic souls
Needy, yearning, silly creatures
We are sad and starving
The lust we have
For love...

A wet death
Embraced in the tangling benthos
Under here

A shove, a scream, a splash…

I
Can’t
Swim

How can one express
Deep feelings,
Or beauty, or love
in a laconic
Twenty-four syllables?

Rich brown and gold
Ineffable grandeur
and hugeness.

         I feel small here
I’m afraid that I might jump.

A rare and brilliant smile
Luculent and bold.
A beauty like yours
Gives birth
to
new
poetry

Giant orange moon
A portent of disaster
The superstitious cling to charms
For their safety.

Tiny hands
Shaking snow globe
White Christmas on tiny town
Wistful, dreamy watcher.
Making wishes
