V Day

 

The brown apartment water magically reflects how I feel today. Rusty, ugly, and shitty.

Midwinter Feeling

img_3282

These are the deserted streets,
Your eyes rest upon the synchronicity of the rolling traffic lights
Green, yellow, red
Sentimental dreaming glory of the quiet empty neighborhoods
The ground frozen, well coated with snow
And the rancid breath of the manhole becomes apparent in the twilight zone
When the sun falls below the earth, a chilly breeze races through the backlane,
Down the river banks
Wind chill
The chimney blows extra bellows of smoke to make up midwinter blow
The hour too far forward for spring to come
And the night is much too long for the morning to arrive
And when the sun rises the sky how it is deceiving
Clear blue, ice cold. and conniving
It bites the skin
Without doubt or care
Whiplashing the passer-by’s into true summer dreaming
And the people they bottom out into a sad state of grimace
And the cold the skin it takes a beating
Cold snap
Midwinter naps
Seasonal feelings
