Monday Poem: Seasons Between

Southbound Knoxville July 2014


Break free

Imagine new endings

Svelte middles

Reignited stars

Feel the flipped tummy sensation

Of toes off the runway

Let fall the jacket



Reality’s callous bump

Where head meets earth

Sinews of acceptance



Ferocious gravity


Crinkles thoughts into wisps of

Thin paper

Tucks them

Into stale dough

To be broken apart

And dreamt
