squeezed

politics leave me squeezed
like an orange in a bench vise
like an eye fighting tears
like a fist of frustration
like coal becoming diamonds

Forward

If
you
turn
around
at
the
right
moment
you
can
look
forward
in

OLD ROSE

Withered Rose
Old n dry
Petals rest
At your feet
Scent lost
Waiting to die
Clutching
Memories of
Summers
Past by
Tear wells
In your eye…
