Cannot Explain

Frozen eyelids stuck surmised
Rain calms down, so why can’t I?
Beads align upon the pane
Slanted slashes still remain

To change
Mind that I
Cannot explain

Care for a Reading?


Tears Inside

Then there’s that fine line
History hurt
More strength from failed reply
Never give up, will always try
Even with tears inside
You’re not qualified

Burning canvas
Sat in silence
May be hell
Still want to fight this…

So sorry, Story
Wanted untold
Judgment passed
Buy what’s been sold

Once Spoken

Icicles stalactite-sized
Adorning gutters and power lines
Glimmering strands of Christmas light
Alberta Clipper stings tonight

Blinking traffic signals
Ambient glow from rows of street lamps
Present a quiet city morning
Before college classes resume
Legislative minds renewal
New agendas after the holidays
Trying to fix a choking economy

Joy riders in a navy Ford Focus
Lay on their blaring horn
Announcing dawn like a wake up call
Startling stray pedestrians

Car lights blur speeding past
Slick peel-out, had gunned the gas
The focus reflected in limo-windowed
Empty building glass
Lingering alongside a fifth beep
Fading streak, slow to recede
Low echoing
Beyond summarized voices
Once spoken, now gone
Passing monuments on the Capitol lawn
Snow clump stuck to the V in ‘Nam
