parting baby leaves

stretching to catch some sunshine


meet never again

the soldier ~ a decima

Beneath the surface of the night

one lost soldier weighed down with arms,

evanescent faith captured warm

underneath soft sketchy starlight,

brought down his patience with his plight

and as the hours broke curfew

his obfuscated thoughts seemed true

his verecund life unadored

left forgotten forever more

found in that night his peace renewed

would you read me

If I’m writing from a cell

counting bars that’s not music

and I’m in for my human failings

Would you read me

If my life is rife with strife

as a wife with a tongue like a knife

Out of gendered kindness

Would you read me

If I can cajole you

with my Janus-faced act

as a smooth operator in fact

Would you read me

If it makes you happy

when words conjure worlds

with whos and whys and what ifs

Would you read me?
