May #26 for National Poetry Month


i left you behind,

finished the list of tasks

that filled my afternoon,

and without touching my finger to wrist,

closed the door,

wading into the sun.


nothing left behind

but that tender spot,

the one i forget about

where love weaves

its intricate colors

into a cloth

i barely recognize.

      There was a young woman from Frisco

      who liked her milk cold

      and her cookies from Nabisco

      It was Opera she practiced

      but she really liked disco,

      this poet, this actress, this

      young woman from Frisco

      .

      Sometimes it is best if I take refuge behind humor

      When topics are brought up, we tend to think more about them, then weave them into our own lives. Nicely said, and truly captivating.
