Emergence

New life
emerging from the earth
on these warm
November days

No time
to properly flourish
before frost
takes them all away

Breaking Ground Control

Breaking Ground Control

Cracked
right through
the middle

Pulling apart
and caving into
this curious riddle

A crooked framework
patched with the sum
of its roots

Forced into
the general rule of thumb
not quite spoken

Foundations
only hold up
after the mold is broken

Hindsight Blues

Hindsight Blues

Long overdue
residue
dripping from
hindsight blues
Catastrophic
catatonic
blasphemous
gruesome ooze
Guilt for the things
We failed to do
second-guessing
doors we didn’t walk through
mistakes were made
give and take
desires from the lake
of daring ruse
Over and under
reactions spewed
out to them
into you
Words wielded
within confidence
sold for minor dues
or blasted from the heat
of an angry fuse
Gains and losses
joys and regrets
cycled through
rose-colored hues
Spread out wide
upon the table
a magnificent feast
for the resident muse
because we do
what we do
and live beyond
what we lose
