Week 24 - There is a Rainbow Somewhere

There is a Rainbow Somewhere

Sun showers, 

And waiting to run to the car,

Through sheets of rain.

The sky is clear now and,

Clouds look like the mountains I know so well. 44 more words

The Silence of Others

Rubber against asphalt, leather against concrete.
A blanket of smoke, smell of people all around.
All the madness, all the chaos,
The concrete jungle.

Cars and bikes, buses and rails. 107 more words

I look around,

And I want to keep my head in the MLB postseason,

The Giants terrible defense and the lack of trains in Hoboken. 31 more words

breathing after a hard rain

when i breathe
during the time of the hard and heavy clouds
the cracks
spiderwebs of tears silent and stifled
bitter words and glances
spring up along the skin… 139 more words

A Tree Grows

But the strong twist of branches,

Higher than my windowsill,

Stands guard at my fire escape. 22 more words

Week 21 - Next Time

Next Time

My body remembers you faster than my heart does.

I move in your embrace,

My eyes grow red and I try to teach my lungs to breathe, 48 more words
