My World

In Poetry on September 11, 2014 at 2:42 pm

I traverse

a fish pond world

gone black

by deadly feet

of swimming children

that pee

and splash

in the water I breathe

Slap Snooze

In Poetry on August 27, 2014 at 2:34 pm

Slap snooze

Stumble from bed

Take a whizz

Walk to kitchen

Run water to tumbler

Flip on weather

Take a sip

Throwback meds

Try to listen

Too late

I hear:

Hot in places

Rain in others

They’ll be wrong

No doubt

Place umbrella

Near briefcase

In case

Go back to bed


William D. Hicks, USA
