dime store emotion

and so it was written
the same way
for years
anchored by
consistency
as if ritual itself

were to reveal

the lie:

in the arm
or the ear

Night watchman

tempering remembering
solo walk into
light noise life
out just as quickly
Wayne Shorter lays down
tenor and soprano
I shall fear no evil

© David S Smith 2015

Friendly fire

they were tracer bullets
or perhaps a flare
shot over the
wrong horizon
brightening the
landscape briefly
as you slept

© David S Smith 2015

once summer

now chrysalis
a snake skin

filled with cast off
leaves and twigs

then autumn

splitting down the middle
and thirsty for frost

© David S Smith 2017
