Mr. Poet

Times go so fast
And nothing gets done
As I lie naked

Faking, singing, willing,
Jotting – nothing,
And only
Drinking Rum.

Nocturne

my face
     veiled
  by your hair

a peculiar modesty

we become
       gentle

we become
     a single flame

we glow
   in our center

Insanity

In retrospect, you may be able
to visualize

that dirt road lined with a procession
of black walnut and hickory trees,
that vast rose hedge.

Restaurant Date

it must have been the staff
who swept
the table clean of
conversation,

who replaced it with
white cloth,
silverware,
salt and pepper shakers,
bright china.
