Short and Dark in Hue

Uniform we stand, a tear, a giggle. Desist.

One minute for a life of millions.

I stand near the back; I never met the man.

Damn! Some coffee on this tie,

But it’s black and no one will notice right?

Aisles of aisles, so many it’s hard to count

The time I spend on work.

Lennon said it right, hard work and long days,

Not so long when you’re at the front,

But then it’s over and the earth muffles my giggle.

Desist.

When Autumn Rises

Fading trees of fall

Squirrels dancing all around

New doors and new ends
