22~18

Smashed up against others

So crowded it scared me

Then a flash above me

Begat more just like thunder

My heart how it pounded

And filled me with joy

Didn’t know the kid in me

Was laughing so loudly

Smiles stretch my bright face

Shiny with happy tears

Bridge beneath my feet

Shaking with each explosion

Ashes fall stinging

But I do not feel them

Ears full of ringing

Sky flowers so sparkly

They light up my eyes

Birthday of my Country

(Who keeps touching my butt?!)

22~17

if you sank your fangs

into my cold dead soul

and made me immortal

would you be sorry?

22~16

“Because I Can”

 

always there for me

ever since I’ve known you

 

when I trusted you most

you broke my heart worst

 

ran away

my mean ghost

 

until you missed me

and did it again

 

my foolish heart

(why do you keep hurting me?)

22~15

Burning…

 

I Want You Now

Like I needed you then…

 

Fire races between us

When we are skin to skin..

 

So deep inside me

I yearn in pain…

 

Only you can fill me

Make me whole again…

 

So far away

So close to my heart…

 

How can I live

With us so far apart?

22~14

Forever Proud

Of my ties

To the land.

 

Many times over

Told of her fame.

 

~Woman

Who runs

With fawn~

 

Handwritten

Into the copy

Of my family tree.

 

Who never existed.

 

Why lie to me?

22~13

The way

She was born

Should have

Killed her…

 

Instead

She stole

Our hearts

A short while…

 

And then

She took

Them

With her…

22~12

we huddle

we friends

around

her

as she opens

her necklace 

and scatters

his ashes

in the wind

22~11

so many tears

rolling down my face

wiggly belly gyrating

as i lie on the floor

after my sister

sipping sweetly

turned towards me

drink straw up her nose

surprising us both!

22~10

Brave Mouse

Traipsing across

My floor…

 

Skippity doo~dah

Now you are

No more…

 

Didn’t you see

My kittens three?

 

Einstein in his 80s

You shall not be…

22~9

he took it with him

 

the smell

of fresh raspberries

 

churned

into cold cream

 

surrounded

by salt and ice

smiles and laughter

 

an old wooden bucket

of ice cream by the lake

 

cousins swimming

amongst creepy fish

leaping from the boat

 

racing for cones

handmade by my uncle 

 

recipe forever gone

 

just like him
