Sweet Air

loveworn label gap silk kerchief

 

 

Whistle sweet air and wave

 

Lyrics on lips on a fire escape

 

Three in a hammock at noon

 

A girl, a Sharpie, a hanging tomato

 

One shoelace with two choices

meets at mid-point
and bows.

 

Ice water and sliced orange
curtsy the mouth.

 

The keepsakes of kindness
lay in our breath.

A Penchant for Pocketed Trivia

Tagged: Accessories, Watches.
Tags: ,

 

 

Keen to who and how

 

without show or scene.

 

A penchant for pocketed trivia;

 

curiosity cabinets dusted with facts

 

knickknacked over candy-coated

 

pieces of hours and

 

suppers past.

 

 

 

Rendezvous at the highest moon.

 

Tales with mass tug and we lean

 

What is wise than to be fascinated?

 

To forget the time

 

To get the gentle nod that turns the tides

 

In matters of introductions or politics or, gracious,

 

the very best of nonsense.

Turn your brights on

 

and be someone.

 

Arms out, palms up, make like a top

 

merry or weary

 

go ’round in royal-colored jumpsuits.

 

I approve this victory lap.

 

Paint the carpet red.

 

Place a target on your

 

top hat.

 

 

This marked rhythmic day

 

with its laceloose dance parades.

 

Serum less for truth in mind

 

than in body. Face plant.

 

Be frivolous with the elements.

 

The top will fall where it may and

 

roll it’s own majestic lullaby.

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

Tagged: Fashion.

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.
