Young Summer

took a walk-in summer grass picked a blade, made a sound the air was country wild strawberries sweet like lazy cats we lay for hours In the filthy hot, in the no time afternoons sometimes on the highway to anywhere I had never been, now I was away from home, but home In a holiday dusk I remember watching mosquitos dance we hid in quiet as the sun […]

Losing My Religion

I’m sorry you were alone when the faces drifted away.When your days got stolen and good nights emptied.Just a vessel that you God, abandoned.Someone who gave up her soul before she was given one.Where were you when she asked to remember?Why did you punish her when all she did was repeat your name in prayer?Lord, […]
