Reviews

A Goodreads reader left me a 5-star review for Gossamer. This is the best review I could hope for when it comes to heartfelt poems.

Excerpts

No Promises

Qualifying your affection.

No promises, guarantees…so afraid

I’ll overestimate commitment.

Your fear seems desperate

as a butterfly

escaping the net.

But I am no collector.

I have no pins

to pierce your heart.

Only hands to capture

a fleeting moment

of cherished flight together.

Resigned to release you.

No promises, guarantees…so afraid

when season’s end must come.

 

Dream Machines

I dream of a machine

wired

brain to brain

they hear

exactly what I hear

 

I dream of a machine

potato head inspired

ears snap off

new snap on

rewired brain

 

Silence

[End of Excerpts]
