*** A KISS ***

I placed a KISS in both my palms
And closed my fists tight
Then stepped outside and
Opened my hands to the wind
As it took flight toward a sky of blue
I prayed that one day you'll lift
Your face and that KISS 
Will find its way to you.

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.

- William Shakespeare

Thursday, October 22, 2009



Foreboding, heavy
footsteps, one
bulb dingy white.
Then the darkness,
the pungent
stagnant room.
On the closet door
a jacket, old
shoes, the gloom.

A Vicks jar,
aspirin, curtains
drawn apart.
Sealed, sick smell
that lingers on
My anchored heart.
