week 675 ~ the bittersweet morning arrives in grey

with 2 comments

the bittersweet morning arrives in grey
trailing a rain cloud on the horizon
we wake up in an uncertain autumn
a tilted world holds disaster away
with thumbtacks as hope slides to the edge say
what you will we can taste oblivion
in our cornflakes in our eggs overdone
in our coffee bitter and black today
we suit up to save the world though doubtful
of the tools we can employ we’re steadfast
armed with a belief that democracy
won’t fail on our watch chewing a mouthful
of all that’s gone wrong we mean to outlast
our misfortune from sea to shining sea

week 317 ~ just one more minute

with 2 comments

me.317.jpgjust one more minute
with my eyes closed please
hard to jump in it

this waking up bit
perhaps I could tease
just one more minute

of sleep maybe fit
a bad dream’s release
hard to jump in it

today needs a hit
of energy squeeze
just one more minute

to wake up admit
-ing light by degrees
hard to jump in it

stretch time to permit
somnambulant ease
just one more minute
hard to jump in it
