Poetry, Prose, Art, Photography, Curiosities



embracing needles

age has
inoculated me
to human charm
genuine and feigned
thank goodness

war by candlelight

amidst the curiosities

of my yet to be packed up

roll top desk

i found a diamond bracelet

you had given me

hiding in one of

the apothecary drawers

it reminded me immediately

how you waged

war by candlelight

instinctively i pulled the pin

on that gauche grenade

lobbing the tacky bauble

into the goose shit encircled pond

behind the house

your weaponry

is not welcome here


i choose love

he is the page

i have been seeking

the page i shall never

turn away from

the page repeating emblazoned words


he is the one

he chose me

and i choose love
