Agave seed head, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California

pointing me away
from this melancholy place—
dry and brittle stalk

Melancholy Whore

Melancholy whore,
annoyed with bargain hunters,
shuts down for the night.
~~ ~~ ~~
Melancholy whore,
hushed after her performance,
smokes a cigarette.
~~ ~~ ~~
Melancholy whore—
the pain of indiscretion
pressing down on her.

Three Sparks

Sunday2 photo Sunday2_zps83efc41c.jpg

Dying spark of hope—
melancholy settles in,
nibbling at my soul.
~~ ~~ ~~
So many stories
begin with a spark of grief—
Tolstoy understands.
~~ ~~ ~~
I dream of the one
whose basket is filled with sparks
gathered from the hearth.
