Tuesday

My twilight is quiet.Our dinnertime is loud.Midnight is subtle with coldJanuary air. I sit in front of this device.Two screens, with music. Mymind in turmoil; in flashbacks of secretsins and random whims. 2023

Enigma

Me and myaudacity. I’m stillgrounded. My sanityis pushing me back.It’s not sweet from the start.Ask me what is not desirable.I’ll spoil you with timelessstories from my closet. 2022
