up and away...

deep felt emotions
express themselves
as surface level scars

hold to ransom
the keeper who
bottles them in jars

better set them free
to be amongst
the butterflies and stars

...up and away

from the late estate

there’ll come a time when time
itself is forever more the concern
of those who meet it face-to-face

then and only then shall time
uncouple its dominion and
release its grip from hand-to-hand

in exchange of circumstance
that which matters shatters
the hour’s glass ... from time-to-time

from the late estate

drawing attention...

given her weight of attraction
she drew an attentive eye
... became the point of view

through which the depth of field
was by increments adjusted
... and calibrated true

to a measure of spectacle
that captured her perfection
... which in focus ever grew

drawing attention...

long story short...

bring forward the end
alleviate the pain
... that anticipates eternity

cut to the chase
spare the detail
... that complicates complexity

make the last edition
the final cut
... that abbreviates longevity

long story short...

missing suits...

random samplings offer
luck’s fair game
... so the deck gets shuffled

joker plays the duffer
spade stakes claim
... stolen heart gets snuffled

the rankless suffer
King takes aim
... reputation’s scuffled

missing suits...

with egg shells broken...

familiar greetings
suggests their purpose
... day breaks gently

over golden pastures
under liquid skies
... that subsequently

exagerate the meaning
of unfolding rhymes
... expressed intently

with egg shells broken...

upon return to work...

an ornamental presence
distracting attentive thoughts
with all proportions over-scaled

curiosity citing false pretense
proclaimed permission ... of sorts ...
enough that licenced-wonder so prevailed

having reconciled the difference
a fresh perspective comforts
the resumption of that which was curtailed

upon return to work...

rearranging furniture...

overlooking the obvious
to see beyond this squared frame
that paints a picture of the scene before me

removing four-legged objects
that in the foreground situate
themselves in solid states of certainty

unbuilding this construction
dismantling and dissolving
the structures that shade my relativity

rearranging furniture...

here’s another clue...

sharp discrepancies
contradictory evidence
suggest the opposite is true

nefarious activities
fixing up a circumstance
using tape instead of glue

implicated entities
not leaving up to chance
what negotiators knew

here’s another clue...

you’ve wiped away the crumbs that dressed
my table with
remorse
and of
this service I
shall be ever grateful ... of course
