"A Long December" and Other Poems

A Long December

Days short and frigid,

no wonder

natives stay inside,

clutching giant mugs of hot chocolate

while watching "Desperate Housewives"

as equally desperate wishes to head south,

change identifies or lovers,

to be anywhere or anyone else

for a sun-soaked afternoon

color the grayness of

late afternoon on the northern prairie.

Border Talk

Somewhere between the end of

Kentucky and the inception of Indiana

personal revelations are

requested. Quietly forced out--a silence

labor of becoming--such details

dominate the miles to come.

Saturday Market


Ironically, we visited on a

Sunday. Vendors lusted after our

billfolds while musicians bared their

souls on a stage shaded, unlike the

bench where I sat.


Is this the city's core?


A question, one which reverberated

long after we departed, one that remains

unanswered still.

Quest


My own private

utopia has eluded me.


I've searched in

cafe's, men's vacated


penthouses, and even

in this soulless city.


I'm moving to Nepal.

Phoksundo Lake in the country of Nepal

      Interesting and enjoyable poetry Julie. By the beauty of that lake, I'm moving to Nepal also...and it is the happiest country on Earth.

      Jodah: Thank you for commenting. The lake in Nepal is beautiful. I cannot blame you for wanting to move there.
