Nine Twenty-nine am

Finally reached thirty-two again, November twenty-third, Day before sounds from the past meant memories made, Smells and aroma’s, The table set, Smell of turkey and ham in the oven, Potatoes simmering white and candied, Black olives,green and beet pickles in fancy dishes, Champaign bottles to be opened, Dad bossing because though he spent no timeContinue reading “Nine Twenty-nine am”

Eight O nine

Still fifty-two degrees, Feels saunaish in my home, Two nights ago was cold, We were taught at the Heike’s if its summer and a yard sale has blankets or Afghans or quilts buy them, Nana’s sofa no one else wanted me included, It was flowered and very low, To give it height I suck magazineContinue reading “Eight O nine”

Steaming windows

Its only August seventeenth twenty-twenty-two, To early for steamed windows, The steam still is there, I am proud of twice in my forties being responsible for steamy windows, See unlike young LGBTQ there were no mentors for girls from small Iowa rural towns, I spent a couple.years hoping while carving my pocket knife would slipContinue reading “Steaming windows”

When a friend doesn’t get it, It wasn’t an afternoon lark! Gave me PTSD!

Sno cone girl

Soft sweet girl, Tough butch, Ticklish vegan, Geogian peach, Sno cone girl, Last week I used a bowl from the set I bought her, She left in our cupboard, She in the box on the floor, Mom use to do that, I had to threaten to put her new gift on the curb before she’dContinue reading “Sno cone girl”

Just breathe

Moment by moment, Just breathe, Stars ignite, Tears fall, Just breathe, Eyes are full, Years flip by Heart aches, A giggle is heard, Just breathe, A puppy barks, A kitten purrs, A baby cries, I sigh, Those I love taken away, Alone stands I, One lesbian butch alone weeps, Just breathe,

Swing the door

Swing the door this way, Swung it that way, You moved, Who phoned, Two cans and a string, It worked, Where is she who knows, Treasures silly are kept, Locked on empaths heart, Empaths seek that person who without efford, Swings the door, Unlocks hidden truths kept out of sight, I share enough, I haveContinue reading “Swing the door”
