GUILTY

You loved me
But
You loved someone else more
I could see it.

So I
Unlaced my fingers
From your hand
Setting you free.

Emotionally
I didn’t let go
Never have
Never will.

Vows
Were exchanged
And
Promises made.

Time
Brought
Hurting
Things beyond human control.

If
Only
I had chosen
Another path.

Now
I
Feel
Guilty.

CEREAL KILLER

On Monday
For breakfast
Dad
Ate CAPTAIN CRUNCH
But that doesn’t make him a cereal killer.

On Tuesday
For breakfast
Mom
Ate CAPTAIN CRUNCH
But that doesn’t make her a cereal killer.

On Wednesday
For breakfast
Brother
Ate CAPTAIN CRUNCH
But that doesn’t make him a cereal killer.

On Thursday
For breakfast
Sister
Ate CAPTAIN CRUNCH
But that doesn’t make her a cereal killer.

On Friday
For breakfast
I
Ate CAPTAIN CRUNCH
But that doesn’t make me a cereal killer.

ORANGE

No matter
How you
Twist, turn
Arrange words.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.

It
Is
Not a boring color
Still.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.

It may
Look good
In a swatch or collage
Still.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.

The car
In your garage
May be it’s color
Still.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.

At home
Beside the range
There is a bowl of fruit
Shoot.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.

Isn’t it strange
A barrage of other words
Fit together and chime
Still.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.
