Poem: Reds and Oranges

Surfing the sky, red waves and orange clouds, I want to be there. Floating high and mighty, like a shaman cultivating power, tending to her fingernails, making sure the toenails are sharp. Flying this powerful, between the folds of the waves, the sea creatures… Continue Reading “Poem: Reds and Oranges”

Poem: My Own

not on my own, not on my way, to a place I’ve never been, coming into view from the hill, high speeds passing slower ones, get out of the way, gotta get out of the way, there’s a place I need to be, it… Continue Reading “Poem: My Own”

Poem: Crescendo

Puffed sleeves at a ball, look at them in a cluster, gathered around in a circle. Many sets of eyes on the prize, the most handsome, waiting. He sets the mood, dour at times, not wanting to expend too much, outreach his hand too… Continue Reading “Poem: Crescendo”

Poem: Paper Plate

Bits of cheese stuck to the surface. That was my heart. I know. Eating my sorrows away slice by slice. Wanting more. Not getting anything. So easy to throw it away in the plastic bag. Out of sight. Not on your mind. Gnats and… Continue Reading “Poem: Paper Plate”

Poem: Space Rocket

Come onboard Hop on Lengthwise Spread yourself out Hold on tight with your fingers You’re going on a ride Engine roars Wheels turn left Gaining speed straightaway Wings take flight Grip on tight with your shoes Still on the outside Should be on the… Continue Reading “Poem: Space Rocket”

Poem: Prison Outbreak

One coming into the bars, many going out of the bars, quickly, run as fast you can, don’t look back, you got places to be, people to see, and things to pick up again. The loud noises are heard, climbing over fences, hopping on… Continue Reading “Poem: Prison Outbreak”

Poem: Trickery

You skip and dance around as if a fool, watch them from far away and snigger. You are not the jester you claim, looking into other’s lives they do not deserve. You adjust harsh punishments, forcing them to wither into little heaps. You arrive… Continue Reading “Poem: Trickery”

Poem: Colorful Dream

Colors swarming above my head. I want to be there with no pressures lingering close by, where I can breathe peacefully. You can too but not as well as others. Bright yellows turn from dark reds. I say so because it’s my dream and… Continue Reading “Poem: Colorful Dream”

Poem: Loose Leaf

Scoop up those leaves, take them to your mom and dad, don’t forget the rake, hang it up on the hook, the one that your brother used, that secret you kept for him. They were blind to what he was, but you knew his… Continue Reading “Poem: Loose Leaf”

Poem: Child Like

Running toward the swings, wanting to fly high, and touch the clouds, sticking my fingers deep into the fluffiness, but only in my mind. Behind the disguise and far enough away, the texture feels different, I’m not sure if my body will follow my… Continue Reading “Poem: Child Like”
