floorboards

floorboard creaks when I lurch forwards for the open doorway, it sucks upward with my feet. It will be impossible to replace.

hailstorm

hailstorm puppy chow footprints in the muddy snowdrift, beams of headlight wobbling over the crystals, twinkling snow angles flutter and dance, the snow prints are hollow tubes of smoky cool.

hailstorm drumming my haircut plastered flat to my scalp, coiled heavy locks and dripping hairpins splashing my shoes, they are ruined and they’re so new, the sky is deep and gray.

silverware

silverware frosted and cool, varnish smells and curling paper lining, a string of dust and things, a squeak of metal and a squeeze of wood.

broke

broke down filthy tugboat, lollipop prince and smarting ankles, beyond the splashing sphincter lives the dandelion king, his smile yellow and cracked with rot and marked with coffee smudges, and he bobs up and down.

missed

Missed baseball clink wood swish, a smell of sand and leather, my fingers are cold roots twisted round the stinging bat, my elbows throb and my cleats teeter tot in the crispy, holey footprints.

fatigue

tired trouble smother smooch, trees sagging springtime bloom, bluebirds fanning the damp grass, droopy feathers, the buzz of motor and the squeal of old truck, footprints in muds shrinking into themselves and slurching.

holistic

holistic herbs twirling in your coffee cup, a spoon askant and smelling of copper, smelling of dried faucet water-on-metal, the fluff of powder dancing in the swish, and the health benefits of even looking at it.

crowded

crowded room with flags and drizzle, porpoise dandelions in pots and troughs, come the cake and the balloons, and the old men with their piney scent, come the nilla wafers and the bag of doritoes, and the children aflutter and trampling beneath the slanted door shadow.

spikes

spikes strong cantaloupe bard tale. albeit another man, one not unlike you and I, was truly to blame. eating apples and crabapples and Adams apples too. Beware the social dictator that reads on 1s and 0s.

deserted

deserted asteroid blue procedure. stardust slippery footprint coat. white suits and silver gleaming rocket. fins and a sparkling nosecone. A comet hurtling, turning our way. that’s no comet. My harpoon gun’s stuck to my utility belt.

fallen

fallen leaf lined coblestone path, bugs sliding fig leaf, damp dew run run, clicking tree tops and muscle headed raccoons pirouetting cross the bows, across dappling the pinwheeling fog.

key

key lock flower store upholstery. floral columns coffee stained textures, a smell of mold and varnish, a peel and a bubble and a finger hole, are there bugs inside, is there a plate of bugs between paper and wood?

framework

sterile

sterile barren whitewashed sandy caps. catlike and foundering. a sun drenched ballyhoo, wild and prospering. Schoolbuses navigate the hercules drought maze. monsters round the corner left, but right’ll take you cyclops bound.

biblical

biblical mess, storms, trees careening through jetties of blood and foam. Red skies, lightning bolts to skeletal frames. thunder smashing plates. A rumble in the earth, catching our balance, dropping things.

harm

harm’s way. hot bullets hushing waves, ducking for cover, rolling into things. Grass spritzing your face. Background boom clap. Crawl like a caterpillar to the basement dugout. More bullets whizz by. Headfirst down the stairs.

sill
