I almost made it to the park


I almost made it to the park,
the one smelling like an
untamed jungle,
where wild things rub
against rough trees,
leaving little tufts of fur
clinging to the bark.
I almost made it to the park,
but the spirit of the night
nudged me toward ten
thousand constellations
rumbling through the sky,
and I could not help
but take two others with me,
strangers in the flesh,
but kindred spirits,
and we watched
Cassiopeia’s Crown
crumble into dust.

hidden among the shadows
the fragrance of soup

Flowers

roses in a bowl
to animate her spirit
this month of mourning
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
A bowl of flowers—
impassioned by the fragrance,
she slips off her dress.
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Flowers in a bowl—
the crone would sore pervert them
with her darkling arts.
