My Words (+2)

“Past moments segmented euphoric,

notebook in the back of my jeans”


It used to be a pocketed feeling,

today it’s the air that I breathe


They used to visit when I would invite them,

now they’re my shadow unseen


Blanketing my world with their lettered embrace,

to inspire, enthrall—and redeem


(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2020)



Every Moment


What every man would like to say,

and every woman like to hear


What every moment would then embrace

—released to so endear


(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2020)



If, As Emily Said...


Dying is a wild night

and a new road”




Darkness is passion untamed

—on a highway to hell


(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2020)
