Mindscapes

broken, fractured
words, images-
reflecting red-
blink, blink, blink
off shiny, wet
tarmac, watching
blues shift,
speed away…

magenta, no-golden-
skies, blues
abound, grasping,
pulling, painting
this canvas, read-
thoughts, scattered

Waves of the
Danube whispers,
tumbles, from
golden bells,
davenport
dreaming
still, hear
the screaming,
gulls, over
head, swooping,
plucking, each
new word,
from
this
head.

Sacramento Storms

water spilling
covering streets,
rain whispers
ssssssshhhhh sssssshhhhh
branches whipped
ttttthhhhwaaack
striking shed sides,
downed lines
hissssssssss
eyes glint,
deadly-
winter
ways,
winter
days…

Shadow People

stalk city
streets,
mumbling-
cruising cubicle
corridors,
answering
phones-
greeting
each other
with rusted,
pitted words-
broken
platitudes,
oblivious
groans, they
utter, to
each other.
A pantomime,
of being.

sitting in time, emptying
                         the mind
on this track of
A to B, sometimes C
but never
why?
