    so today is my wedding anniversary and my wife dropped a Bret Hart reference about it. Pretty sure I made the right choice.

  4. a gem in the hand

    [A gem in the hand]

    He shook awake.
    His dream fresh  
    sweat on his brow.
    The cave empty
    stomach tight. He stepped out of his cave.
    Relieved his bladder in the bush
    and choked
    there was no moon
    plucked from the sky in his dream
    that felt like a nightmare. He could see the hand
    still and strong. A face on its thumb.
    It flicked
    opened and swallowed it whole
    moments went by before he closed his robe
    but did not move. Blinked.
    once.
    twice
    but the dark purple remained
    moonless
    he cried
    “was it me father?”
    He called out.
    Only an owl answered
    from a distance.

  8. Spring in Cleveland

    National Poetry Month: Day 3 poem.

    [Spring in Cleveland]

    Sunlight spilled onto her legs
    that had just been wrapped around me.  
    Shoes kicked off 
    and on our eyes met. 
    Silence 
    left its kiss.
    Familiar
    we drank red wine out of plastic cups.  


     
  9. eyes like diamonds

    National Poetry Month day 2. REALLY rough.

    [eyes like diamonds]


    it was the line i’d use  before i took the plunge.
    made a fool  of myself  and asked    you
    to go steady. the hours washed away as I crafted
    it in my room. the cure whispering to me in
    the dark.  but I met your sister first   and
    she gave me my first drink. so    drunk  on wine coolers
    i shared my plans. and the line. put my heart in her sticky hands   
    she    laughed   sipped.   laughed  and said
    at most that will get you a hand job. and
    would i like one. i blushed   because i liked you
    had given me many in my dreams.  i told her this.   silly
    and before i could say anything  she unzipped me.

     

     
  10. letter to my future child

    let’s see how long writing a poem a day for National Poetry Month lasts this time.

    [letter to my future child] 
    it’d started
    there is sun
    and then there Is Sun
    and only those who really know 
    the difference
    will ever know the difference
    whether it be the errant rays of warmth on your face
    or the fiery licks and explosions of destiny
    but when I returned from turning up the AC
    none of this made sense
    and who wants a frightened little child?
