Melt



The sky is that certain shade
of Saturday blue

with a ribbon of sea green
and an easiness
like hope restored.

A budding longing
for that far-off scent
of hyacinth, daffodil,
dirt—even,

burns like a mini-sun, a burgeoning sequence star,
behind the manteau of gray-black-white,
frozen-earth, crunch-bite—

a little poem
warming in the pocket of sky
that certain shade of Saturday blue.

Threads



I’m not fond
of needles,

or needling
in general,

especially when
I’ve lain
on a bed of them.

So I will stick

to the kind
like pine, and

like space, ever
reaching skyward—

to thread
my life

with the hope
that never fails

to call my name.
