I am happiest among the thorn and vine Tuscan tile, and earthy hue my feet, tiny dancers I twirl, the sunset bold the horizon bending, like an ear, listening for foreign words, captured in I love you's, or I owe you many a dream, my eyes shed sleep, like a snake sheds skin Medusa I want you, need...

She struts, pea-cocked feather boa and happiness her shoes, Manolo dreams her hem, a Cuban sunset She straddles, she rides the bar stool, a wooden rocking horse, neighing under the weight of eden She taps, long fingernails on the margarita glass, sad with salt promises, and red cherry for plucking,...

A Country Road Dinner & Serenade
Moist beneath my bare feet the earth crumbles, dead leaves and muck, fill the ground like apples in a pie. The flavorful meadow, an entree of morning mist, upon the bend of lazy bonnet heads, weeping for lovers lost in mowing. A sapling spring, a tiny mouth lapping gentle waters, glitter in the...

Remember daddy, when the bottle came a callin' you'd go to her, your memories of us, photographs A lovely pose, young lovers staring into the lens, wildly like the smile beneath mother's yellow daisy and purple moon eye Two babies in a car, dealing cards thirsty ache in throat, sitting ducks the...

Je Veux des Cigares
Je Veux des Cigares, it sounds so sexy when I say it in French. Not just any cigar, mind you, but a Hoyo de Monterry pressed against my lips.

(My Favorite Poem)
Leave just one smile for me when all the world turns dark and shades to night, for I will be alone again. Leave one tender song, upon my lazy pillow's head to ward off the chill of this mute house.

Rush Hour Parking
Red lights, on a black sea the drum of engines, horns wailing, the exhaust fumes snaking purple sunsets The Detour sign, holes like bullets, movement slow to parking lot inching toward tomorrow Neon trophy up ahead the clamour, wheel to speed bump, turn signal a ticking bomb, arrow One mile marker,...

The Final Harvest
Leaving summer, dusting flecks leaves shriveled, green to gold crumbling beneath heavy feet as marchers drum, nostalgia The air chilled with morning moon fingers numb, anticipation breathes white stalks of bark and birch shedding layers, naked of fruit Vines upon cold concrete wares spread...
