It's Gonna Be a . . .

Finally got my mojo back after a long dry spell. I think I have a short, short story in me too, if I can ever sit still long enough to get it down.

Fourth of July
The steady pop pop pop
of the rain

Second date
My car already parked
in her garage

Earl Grey
and me

Yoga on the beach
her Afro slightly matted

my glasses
half full

Manhole cover-
The ring around
Her right eye

Incoming waves
the white curls of a woman
on the beach

Casino sunrise-
A security guard's eyelids

Pistachio shell
with no seams-
Her pursed lips

Empty clam shell-
The doctor says
False Positive

Ivy greens a wall-
Her unshaven legs

A fifty foot shadow

Summer Madness

Summer lightning-
That blonde streak
in her hair

And until next we meet, may all your potatoes be sweet (and dusted with cinnamon.)
