to hold my eyes open to the sun.

I’ll see the light for a brilliant moment.

(KEEPING HEARTS)

keeping hearts
beyond
harm our armor

rusted
hearts atrophy
we

forget the tin

who didn’t have

wanted it for a

Rumbling Thunder (tanka)

long rumbling thunder
shakes the earth, as lightning
flickers thru the clouds
uneasy laughter attends
our strained embrace

NO HIDING

dark
secret lies in shades
of speech

unspoken in daylight
exposed in
look breath exuded

through pores
like fear to hunt you
down
