Poem: Tick Tock

Tick tock, around the clock, the mouse went down in a hurry. Eleven past midnight, it will soon be twelve in a flurry. My legs won’t move fast enough for the chase. What should I do in this case? Where is my cane? Where… Continue Reading “Poem: Tick Tock”

Poem: Lump

there’s a lump in my heart, where my throat should be, vice versa, not versa vice, and I’m not going to cry this time, no, I will not cry for you. it’s too dark to see within me, not around me, it’s too bright,… Continue Reading “Poem: Lump”

Poem: Welcome to Adulthood

Your family welcomes you when you are born. This is the beginning of your life. It is yours and only yours alone. There is no one to take your place. No one wants to go back to being a baby. Sucking on your thumb… Continue Reading “Poem: Welcome to Adulthood”

Poem: I’m Only Here

When I opened the front door, I wasn’t expecting anything. Nothing special that would happen to me tonight. I ordered my drink and took a couple sips through my plastic straw. The only thought, at the time, was being relieved it wasn’t paper. If… Continue Reading “Poem: I’m Only Here”

Poem: Bones

Bright lights have burned out, Can’t see the curved tracks, The sea ice… Continue Reading “Poem: Like a Roaring Train at Midnight”

Poem: Make Believe Forest

Near the outskirts of the forest, a fox and bear reside. They have been friends for more than five years. Their cubs and kits have played with each other. They are two mamas ready to defend their turf. One day an owl flew into… Continue Reading “Poem: Make Believe Forest”

Poem: The Depths of Life

I remember there was a time I looked forward to the morning sun. The way the rays made lines through the blinds on the opposite wall. There’s something powerful about that, the amount of energy. I know I can’t be like Icarus and get… Continue Reading “Poem: The Depths of Life”
