Reuben’s Day

2015-02-20 13.39.10

Krauted beef
Mimosa sun
Grating rakes
On an empty pond
Verdant triangles
Forged digitally
Crooning flute
Heard deep within
Fiver in fallen leaves
A trade for malachite
And happiness


I am Lifted


A pulling sensation

This magnetic force

I stretch like taffy

Fighting to resist

Like some cartoon

I am lifted

Off my toes

To gently drift

Toward window sill pies
