Curling And Wrapping

Like the ivy

And the vines

That climb the wall,

Curling and wrapping

Around and under

The eaves,

Disappearing into

Who knows where,

The thought of you

Still does the same

To me.

1995 Island Highway

 

Sitting at 1995

One quickly gets

The feeling,

Where did all

Of the time go,

It’s like

Where have you been

Peter Green,

Did you get a glimpse

Of what Morrison,

Joplin, Hendrix saw,

It wasn’t, isn’t

All La Dee Dah

Was it or is it,

Back at 1995

With the buzz of traffic

East, West, North, South

One quickly gets

The feeling,

Where did all

Of the time go.

May Twenty-First

It was one of those days,

You know the kind

When it’s hot and windy,

Gorgeous women around,

Bikers in town

Their patches blazing,

Wannabes revving

Out of reach on

The fringes,

Old timers watching

Shaking their heads,

The full moon itching

To squeeze into

Your bed.
