Under Cover


The book of poverty
dog-eared with possibility
shines bright as it waits
for stolen moments
its weary reader seeking
an iridescent forgettery
of phantasmal escapery
absorbing responsibility

While a gold-plated volume
pristine and uncracked 
glistens forever
on an oft-dusted shelf
its rapacious protagonists 
static in gross veneer
covering no evidence
of any imagination at all

Lichen It or Not


Patch of lichen
suggests growth
prosperous
and damply verdant
on the shady side
of my favorite tree

But another patch
suggests thinning
by erosion
to a husk-leaf
dried and holding on
against intrusion
