Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

stare

stare

 

I stare

at Nothing. It

stares back,

 

a contest

which no one

ever

wins.

rhetorical

 

Have I ever

truly found

a love worth

finding?

 

Never mind,

don’t answer

that.

 

Sometimes, I

ask questions when

I already know the

answers,

 

but

wish I

didn’t.

lullaby lie

01 September 2013

lullaby lie

 

factory’s thrum

becomes

a lullaby

lie,

 

its bedtime story

soothes, numbs

a noisy mind.

summerfall

summerfall

 

 

 

ripe watermelon

sprinklers on grass

evening bonfires

thunderstorms

 

 

everything changes

much too fast

sometimes.

myopic

myopic

 

moth flutters

against my window,

seeking

light,

 

while I sit

looking out into

darkness.

extinguisher

extinguisher

 

I wrote of love,

once

upon

a

 

time

extinguishes hope

in fairy tale endings.

septolet

septolet

 

seven lines

fourteen words

written in

two parts

 

a septolet

doesn’t sound

too difficult.
