April 2021- New Work Pending-
The Missing Thread
Trying so very hard
not to miss this
The tail end of the shadows
contains it like it was pulling ink
in a thread line pinpoint
needles eye of the lines on this page.
April ignoring Spring
Back turned smirking
lusting in the gusting
of a premature barbecue twilight
gale burning hotter
wanting Summer now
No time foreplay.
April pleading hot and fast
Jump me now
Instead of holding the fool May’s hand
So in the hissing high unnatural
desire there is just enough
light and heat to make you
believe out of season
you’ve got a shot at all this.
When April wants to really taunt March
she uses his winds like this on you.
The roar of Winter in the throat of a August Dog
right after the Fools day with your name written
all over it.
April laughing in all their faces.
Calling then just a bunch of numbers with Roman names
don’t let the calendar door hit you as it clears
your ass clear away.
Not a nice girl
Knows you and your missing thread
and shows up on an afternoon like this
to taunt and tease you…..in knots.
