Pearls

Some say that Finding the romance of your lifetime Is to first adjudicate the likes Of giving yourself a full-hearted hug Without the animosities of force Nor the drudgeries of the canals they dug Way back in olden Italia Whereon a bridge there used to perch a canary Tweeting all mightily But he was just …

Electrical Bees

He touches my fingers, in cool misery He smiles at my laughter, I never can see His warm being fine, the fancy is mine Electrical bees is what he will come see. The little restaurant at the end of the world Chock-full of those strangers, I never will know And all garlic breath, they do …

Cool

I’ve not been anything but scorching hot Soared with passions all aflame But when he gently let me down, told me “This is not a rejection”- (but it was!) To tepid. Then to Cool again. It was like this as I recall My emotions, registering on Richter, Rippling on the equator And I thought my …
