Smoky (Randyjw; March 17, 2018)
Intensity can wane;
Was yours subsumed
from heated passions spoken – –
in flames, consumed?
Yet, I hold no blame.
Mine is there – –
ignited embers whitened
stoked by red-hot flames.
Wish (Randyjw; March 1, 2018)
I wish I could paste that star back in place
take it in my hands and hold its face
the covers seem nebulous
and dawn blushes boldly
in fuschias and orange
only the cold moon can wane its predictable phases
or the sun shine long in its eternal gazes
Tho’ I’d shorten the days not to strengthen the light
rearrange constellations to lengthen the night
irradiate my hands and let them burn, then scar
to let it play in the heavens —
so I wish, from afar
