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.

Encore Every Now and Again

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.

Get By Harriet

Tagged: Shoes.




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

Tagged: Boots, Shoes.
Tags: , ,



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




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.
