"It's about words, and words are all I have…"



There was a conspiracy today   aimed at

stopping me     from      writing     As if it

isn’t hard enough  to birth these  words

Harder than a kidney stone?   Don’t know           Or a  baby?      Maybe


First it involved getting out of bed

Ice   driving winds    an Optometrist

who said:  There will be a flash freeze

And a  man    on his knees   beside the

parking meter    Scared the shit out of me                   Cold enough for you?


And finally a door that said:

Jammed    Use   South Entrance

At every step   I nearly bolted                               home   home     home


Like a sad little drone   whose soul

purpose  today     was to eat

a Cupcake



Winter 2010     St. Valentine’s Day
