Forever In A Dollhouse

Forever In A Dollhouse

I exist only in my childhood dollhouse
stuck in my dreams
forever waiting for my turn.
I wanted a perfect dollhouse
made of wood with real tiny furniture
but I got a metal dollhouse
and a plastic family with fake furniture.

The sky's a sullen shade of cyan
as pollutants gather over stagnant water
the sun burns itself out trying
while the rust slowly accumulates
smelling just like blood.

These empty, echoing rooms
scraping by against these metal walls
numb in toxic surroundings
while black mold climbs the stamped stairway.
I can't escape this sinking feeling.

Simple

Simple

A simple truth, a simple plan, a simple life
for a simpleton.

So Fair A Day

So Fair A Day

A saccharine breeze
tickling me
a sweet treat day
so happy and free.

Cotton candy clouds
and corn dog trees
so fair a day
made just to please!

Haiku #9

haiku #9

birds catch bugs in bark
wind carries the smell of smoke
no sign of concern

This is my photograph taken while watching the birds that morning. There was the smell of smoke on the wind after it changed direction and we had 3 spare the air days after this quiet beginning.
