#NAPOWRIMO -Day Four: Write a poem that is about something abstract in the form of relentlessly concrete nouns or adjectives.


Stop killing us

scream so guttural it escapes through hardened lips as a whisper,
while children’s laughter floats like dandelion seeds; innocence before grief

vengeance settles underneath a heart suffocating it’s rhythm,
while america the beautiful faintly frolicks in stadiums;
honor before justice

pungent earth settles across gleaming oak welcoming a soul’s peace that’s been stolen,
while we bellow into hollow skies;
stop killing us.

the battle for
black or white
declares victory in
a field of
color muted by
reckless verbs
and ostentatious adjectives


the smell of
wounded nouns hangs
in the air
and the ghost
of screaming bold face
sustains me until
the next battle

National Poetry Month- Tie Me Up

National Poetry Month- Day 5: I challenge you to spend some time looking at the names of heirloom plants, and write a poem that takes its inspiration from, or incorporates the name of, one or more of these garden rarities.

bachelor’s button

silken ribbons leave legacy of escaped gasps, illicit sighs, forbidden touch
and denial.
the binding marks, a guarded trophy never put on display.
beneath complaints of business demands, desire begins
to simmer.

what remains…
wet sheets
lipstick stained collars
and the bachelor’s button.
