summer day
eating ripe cherries
and thinking about your full lower lip

Liar

A soft snore
Too soft a snore
Roommate faking sleep

Sunset

Haiku in one ear
Distant bells in the other

---

Summer

on their backs
dead ladybugs
and tanning girls

---

Like to Like

When she looked up
the fireworks had called out the stars.

Valentine's Day

Red roses
She's kissing
Someone else's lover
metaphorliteral: (in the process)
All day long the rain falls

I watch worms squirm on the asphalt
and my shoes soak through in the deepest puddles
which grow deeper every time I walk through them.
Shaking the rain off my umbrella,
I turn with a smile to a friend
but my heart falls with the rain.
I let the sky do my crying,
And get on with my day.

---

All day long the rain falls
And I keep going and going
Despite only wanting a cup of tea.

---

Guess who?

Sadness sneaks up behind me
and slips its hands over my eyes
like a close friend.
