SONNET TO AN UNKNOWN LOVER
Your vertical smile is like a symphony:
air vibrating with honeysuckle sound,
piccolo trill lips, coy trumpet harmony,
a refined overture where violins abound.
Your fingers tantalize in curved elegance.
Bow me, tuned cello wrapped in your thighs.

Strong place, queen city, once
the mansions on the hill ruled Water Street,
White and Church. Men with pocket watches
walked to Railroad Square. Now nursing homes slump,
fill with what was once thought upper crust. Offices
of small-town lawyers sell attics fille...
From words that follow flow nothing new,
Frailty is human, despite heavenly view?
A fable for futures, a saga now past,
On winds of wonder, a prophecy cast?

prevailed and howling storms
were on my repertoire to make
bedtime a theatrical event, we
staged worlds that paved the
way to face the real one that
mirrors openness and gaiety

Our love is a temple.
I smell your perfume whilst you dress.
Still in bed I see your reflection
And your silhouette passing in the shadows.
You are a dream of a dream
Of a line verse
Forgotten in slumber.

Each morning on the news
we hear another threat,
of dissatisfied students
eager to pay back
the system that warped them.
We are now acclimatized
to lunatics attacking
malls, the workplace, movie houses,
low or middle-income targets,

THOUGHTS WHILE FILLETING A FISH
As the lake gulps down the sun,
I enter the shadow of my cabin,
carrying my fly rod and creel.
Clematis and rhododendron lay
down their scent in a carpet
that thrills my senses. Warblers
trill from shadows in the shrubs.
The trout on the counter...
Come up from the Pile.
grab a cot, some sleep-
Can’t go home today, tonight.
Have to dig, find my brother.
NOT LIKE ORPHEUS
I made myself stay in the passenger
seat, used my asthma as an excuse,
rolled up the windows when we
got to the Pile, let oth...
