Remain Always a Child

Inept leaders
murdered millions
with the stroke
of a pen.

The humiliation
of a people
sentenced
millions more

Mutually assured
destruction,
stand-in
for peace

Moving closer
to midnight.
lessons of the past
ignored.

Grey, Gloomy Sky

grey, gloomy sky
neighbourhood slowly wakes—
walking sunshine

Full Canopy

Full canopy cools
Their bed of terra firma
Dream until first light

Fault Lines

numb limbs
toddler rampage
and for what?
self-pity.

morning flares
path illuminated
’twas always there.
footfalls need be mine.

Light Slices

twilight remnants
sly orange peek
phrenic expedition
carpe noctem
