First Door

crushing petals just to get the scent
cracked bones for the main event
settled on fair
you’re settled there
resist just ‘cuz it’s tempting
you think it must be bad
and opportunities
like skipping stones
passed you by alone
synth fragrance middle field nowhere
indicates your lifetime there
you can’t convince me
you never hoped for more
and don’t curse the first door

Potpourri

filaments, lodged in between
sweet careen
sea grasses, sway your thoughts
virtuous green
crushing petals just to get the scent
cracking bones in the main event
resist just ‘cuz it tempts you
you think it must be wrong
filling gaps, lodged in between
wipe it clean
sunglasses, light up your sight
so you can’t see
potpourri
