SumnerFielding (11 Poems)

...I don't care so much about anything else, / except love and sincerity, the sun, / and a little amount of rain from time to time. / If I have a healthy body and a little piece of bread, / I want to walk with a smile in great spirits... - Senri Uyeno

perkle

the little dog stands
on my head licking my
face as local news
drizzles from the flat screen
and k-cups perkle
into morning joe
ok i’m awake

powerball

out of the f150
with crisp jeans light coat
to tilt with age and pride at
news and a prayer
slips one into the other
with glassy-eyed wonder

pâte

some parts are bitter
without preparation
a tough old muscle
for instance having beat
through adolescence
war and intimacy
makes a tasty pâte

disappear

so i walk slowly
having dreamt these legs
can carry this frame
passive and suborned as
is an ascetics
thoughtless rumination
so to disappear

shirley

she burns cigarettes on
wood grain smooth and red
like sherry wine and lips
supple in words wet
in literary cons
and lithe aromatics

perspicacity

sunlight flecks on the
terracotta burn with
singed light lit embers
on pervious surface
perspicacity
of geography and
muse pyre to lost
conscience

moment

it was a moment
unexpected as we
met across the
table from each other
amused by small talk
eyes aligned like planets
with wrinkled laughter

(139 characters incl. spaces)

#micropoetry

ember

and some hope for a
change of scenery
an ember beneath
a pile of ash a
prayer on a cold
morning old hands stretched
over a dead fire
