Clock Blocked

The clock ticks
Out of sync
With crickets
Late summer
Dissonance
Manufactured
Prevention
Of the mind shift
That precedes
A lovely bit
Of daydreaming
~CDW

Shouts echoing through
Open windows endlessly
Bouncing down dark streets
~CDW

Where has
Summer gone
Sneaking out
Before sunrise
Like that one
Ani Di Franco
Song
I can almost
Feel puddles
Splashing up
In the wake
Of her heels
Chasing after me
Why did she
Leave so soon
Is there
Anything I
Could do
To bring
Her back
For a week
Or two
Before these
Leaves begin
The perilous
Dance of descent
~CDW

She’s selling
The home
I grew up in
Boxing up
Our history
Throwing it
In the bin
Too many
Years have
Passed since
It was
Her mystery
To unravel
She’s trying
To put
More distance
Between us
Trying to
Put away
Her family
She thinks
She will
Shine brighter
Without us
~CDW

Fey Blood turned 2 today! Actually, yesterday, my inbox is a mess!!

Fey Blood turned 2 today! Actually, yesterday, my inbox is a mess!!

Someday

I will watch
The sun set
Over Luxor
Sunburnt
And footsore
From following
Endless wadis
Exploring
The Valley of the Kings
Then, maybe
I will lease
A small
Dahabeeyah
Sail the Nile
To Thebes
To see
The city of Amon
Before I
Wander back
Along
The great river
Travel inland
To see the
Moon rise
Over the
Pyramid of Cheops

You’re welcome!! 💜

I Am Not A Brand

My smile is
A reflection
Of my heart
A spontaneous
Expression
Of joy
My personality
Is the piece
Of my soul
That I choose
To share
With the world
How I
Leave others
Feeling
After having
An experience
With me
Will become
My legacy
~CDW

I Call It Feminism

In my
Permanent
School record
It states
That I was
Involved in
Gang activity
When I was
Seventeen
My Mom
Told me and
All my friends
To stick
Together
To never, ever
Leave each other
So that it
Would never
Happen again
Grown men
Taking us
Behind
Closed doors
To discuss
The way
Our bodies
Filled our clothes
Young boys
Cornering us
By the locking
Doors to
The restroom
Telling us
What they
Were going
To do
To us
The old man
Who drove
The bus
Letting us know
Our mini-skirts
Were the road
To fiery
Perdition
We didn’t have
Permission
To protect
Each other
So all of
Our records
Will state
Forever
That we were
Involved
With a gang
~CDW

I shiver
When thunder
Roars and cracks
Tears the sky
Assunder
I love
The explosive
Susuration
Of torrential
Raindrops
On roofs
And window panes
Savor
The inherent
Contradiction
Of summer storms
~CDW

😘 💜 You’re welcome Caro!! It was great to catch up on your writing!!

Fey Blood

When the sun
Slants at
Just the
Perfect angle
Filters through
Leaves and
Mini-blinds
To find
The curls
That frame
My face
And light me
From behind
I know why
The family
Legends
Speak of
Fey creatures
Ensnared
Sorceries
Passed on
Enchanted visions
Still unravelling
~CDW

I want to
Slip between
The sheets
With you
Skin to skin
As close as
Two people
Have ever been
Unlocking
All of the
Secrets
That swim
Beneath
Your surface
Tearing down
The fortress
That holds
Me in
Finally
Finding out
What would
Happen then
~CDW

When I try
To articulate
How it is that
How you make
Make me feel
Just thinking
About the way
You smile at me
My heart is
A supernova
Stirring up
The universe
Throwing
Meteor storms
In every direction
Changing gravity
At my epicenter
~CDW
