crochet accessories

for my hair

spring knows green
the buds on trees
the blades of grass

***************

in a warm bed
the tuxedo cat curls up
into a ball

***************

the adoptive moment
waits for cats
in cages

Alien Buddha Zine #16, May 31, 2020

Proud to be in Alien Buddha and thanks Red Focks for publishing Sad Eyes and This Vacant House. Pleased to share the honors with Francine Witte.

Sad Eyes

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

outside this vacant houseroses no longer grow
at midpointtheir petals fell at sunset
inside the housesadness occupies
each roomexpresses emptiness
broken windowscan’t forget what was
pieces of ceilingfall like rose petals
blackened budsgrow on damp walls
the roof criesmore than ever

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

Almost Blue

(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

Patricia Carragon

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

the handkerchief

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.

Forbidden History  

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
