I Can Wait (2020 NaPoWriMo #10)

effects

 

I
Can wait
Protecting my health

I
Can wait
Protecting my neighbors

I
Can wait
For flattened curves

I
Can wait
For new vaccines

I
Can wait
Anticipating new life

I
Can’t wait
Anticipating real change

I
Can’t wait
For social responsibility

I
Can’t wait
For national community

I
Can’t wait
Protecting my anticipation

I
Can’t wait
Protecting my hope

Trampoline Lyrics (2020 NaPoWriMo #8)

Trampoline Lyrics. This morning.
Can I get a connection?
Let it go,
LET IT GO!

Naples, 1996. Trampoline Lyrics.
4 Non Blondes. “What’s up?”
Twenty-five years my life is still
Trying to get up that great big hill
of
hope

1:37 am. Trampoline Lyrics.
Bah, ba-ba-bee-bah.
Bah. Bah. Bump.
Avengers, End game.

Yesterday. Trampoline Lyrics.
Me and Diddy drippin’ diamonds like Marilyn
No, I wouldn’t be drowning in all your IOU’s
Me an Diddy. IOUs. Me an Diddy. IOUs.

The near-silent swivel of wings
Feathers on feathers rustle
Snow-melt silence, and
La la la la la di da

Unearthly Delights (2020 NaPoWriMo #6)

Unicorn rearing

Striking hooves, thudding.
Muscular shoulders kniving beneath me.
I smell horsey-sweat,
Bracing for him to take flight.

Unicorns, elegant rhinos,
Real as the toes on my feet.
Fantasy knubs under my chubby heels,
Until the fine hairs of feathers sprout.

We both, unicorn and fancy,
Take flight. Then the call to supper.
The unicorn lands in Bosch’s world.
I land on an earth void of delights.

‘Til we meet again
