Mothers look away
As their babies coo floras
Unseen and absurd

The Pinks

A bloom hushed the lawn
A truly beautiful death
All shivered in pinks

The Smiling Husks

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 3, 2020 by dc

Quiet graveyards looking down
On this hushed and windswept town

All pink and orange dusked,

The smiling husks of yesterdays,
Soft and sweet to eat,

Wet round our mouths,

A fleet of fishing boats floating
Then sloping over the horizon,

Salt in our smiles,

A late sun shining silence
Before the night starts its roll,

We kiss under whale bones
And dream of the squall.
