poetry, reviews & creative nonfiction

 

and the triple rainbows of that strange summer

 

are you the words of your story. gertrude invited

painters & alice b toklas talked just to their wives.

do you feel bad, summer, turning lives on paper.

 

only you can do something about it. s’your book.

will you have some ideas & will you feel them.  

cloud formations make you cry, so maybe. you

 

traipse the paths & shape your hands like leaves.

you feel it wrong. they say history, full of anger.

 

who’s got your story, summer. quick take it back.
