austerityplays dominoes— one person falls,then another,and another . . . personal shittakes precedence over charity when the hand that feeds can’t pay bills,buy bare necessities,is late with the rent . . .
sad eyes,the cat on 38th street,purrs by the stoop waits for food— eventually realizesthat her feeder can’t come today, tomorrow,or the day after . . . the cat’s dinner, leftover chicken à la trash— today’s menufor tomorrow, or the day after . . . ****************************** this vacant house

bunny ears on Kitty

harbinger of hope
grows in a vacant lot ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Orbis International Literary Journal, #192, June 2020
Thank you Carole Baldock, for accepting my poems, Almost Blue and the handkerchief. I’m so pleased to be part of this British Journal
(trumpet and vocals by Chet Baker)
my mood grows jazzy almost blue unlike robin’s egg nighttime or the Adriatic Sea closer to the wild Baptisia australis or Ajna’s doorway non-existent in a Crayola box or on a Pantone chart almost blue only I can see hear or feel my color has a face a voice a trumpet’s grief a heartbeat slow & broken
& eyes ears & handsarticulate more than words
it’s nighttime—he hides his head in a hoodie.a handkerchief tied tight, covers his mouth—skull-like,the front tooth missing. his eyesin between a threator apology. death lurks in the night. love’s being tested,his eyes more scaredthan mine.
So honored to be part of this colorful series. Thank you Roxanne Hoffman and Jack Cooper of Poets Wear Prada.

forbidden history walks down generation roads indelible stains from hurt and shamebleed more than menstruation broken women broken homesbroken spirits the kitchen or toilet not sanctuaries for escape lips sealed by rusty locks or fists can’t break free fear hides the truth takes a brushscrubs history in the sink or flushes it but hurt and shame don’t always end up clean or in the sewer some clog drains and pipes break locks or fists that keeps lips shut
