Resolutions

Looking forward
one eye lined with kohl
stelliferous & blinky
to fires planned
bones
to be broken in the new year

Be Forgot

Moment
not to be forgot
in fact whole worlds
are built
upon its import

Small girl
sits alone
in a church vestibule
while adult women chat
adjacent

Oh just
leave her there
she’s pouting
Leave her alone
she needs to learn

Small girl
alone in a vestibule
to be forgot
as women’s laughter
fades

For Karin’s prompt to the Real Toads: TAKE TWO AND SING
(Using the words “be forgot” from Auld Lang Syne)

welcoming

Love is
morning chats
while you
are still asleep
but conversant

Plans for the day
when we return again
what’s for dinner
all of which
will be repeated
when you
are actually awake

Love is
not taking advantage
making lists for later
all the mundane shit
repeated
this morning
tomorrow morning
every day
Love is
