dirt on the welcome mat

Tag Archives: love story

lodestone
magnetic filaments
pulled in Milky Way swirls
Wooly Willy’s furry moustache uncurled
opposites attract

millstone
cement rings early exchanged
two hundred pound hula hoops
tire swings bend the branches low
in the summertime

keystone
Jenga played with bones
in an old tree house or a steep staircase
missing link, missing face
in the scrapbook


A single hollow tear,

Just enough emotion to

Drip dramatically.

Hyperventilating breaths,

Much needed lung exercise

Since the heart

Does not race.

Soap opera sob story,

A fistful of plastic rose petals

Reeking of boredom.
