Spring Green, WI

out here things are a little different
every one and thing takes their time

people actually hear what you have to say
so make sure you mean it

barns are shitty because they are structurally unsound
not because they just look worn and torn

at night
great gusts of wind roll across the sky in waves
crashing through the dry leaves and stiff branches
violent and unrelenting
distant thunderstorms pound their muted BOOM
lightning briefly illuminating
clouds, acres, and rain
the misty half moon spell
over all of this

i close my eyes
and hear the ocean

sometimes I look right at the sun
even when I know I'm not supposed to
to see how long I can last.

even though it burns
i know the ghost of the sun
pulsating under my eyelids
will fade over time.

Tiny Vice

New Year's resolution in Nasty Nassau
I should have known from the start
At first it was social, complimentary
Then more frequent, affordances of
still times
and breath

Partner to times that raised my heart rate
the closest approximation to a campfire experience with
darting fireflies
a huddle and whispers
interrupted by bolts of laughter

Campaigns waged in my youth
picket signs discarded
Now I just pick at it
A scab

I'll never say never
but I will say "Not this time"
because our time has come
