Plowed cuticles on newspaper nails

 

on napkin-folded pocket currency

 

on the 10:39am train.

 

 

Own and be owned.

 

Go around those stopped short.

 

 

Today no-turn-on-red does not apply.

 

A sidewalk existence.

 

Today’s special is a debt-free souffle.

 

Answer only to a momentarily

 

cast shadow.

The Whole Day of Slow Honey

Not early enough for sunrise

 

but just after. When there are no secrets.

 

Swaddle these Maytime rays and

 

things that are light enough

 

to linger

 

Stir what’s hot and lemony

 

The whole day of slow honey

 

 

Not in search any longer,

 

but just after. When faces are at rest.

 

Fresh cold bursts and warm tomato soup.

 

Knowing grins that close your lids

 

fleetingly. Socked feet

 

alternate tiptoe and flat foot,

 

this oversized hour of scattered and gathered

 

snug solitude.

Make Due, Make Haste

Bones stiff as youth, heels steady as

 

occupy resolve. Engines minded

 

by those with wits

 

they can construct in. Lax does not equate

 

to tasteless. Formed to flair

 

enough to function. Come what

 

may, we’re rooted away from here.

 

Be moved

 

in any direction but

 

back.

 

Strong willed in craft and grip. Make

 

what’s yours by hand, by day, by night.

 

And slap your maiden name on it.

 

Don’t count your every step,

 

but be certain that you take them.
