Him/hurricane poEtpourri

Buoyant Spirits

Detached shadows eclipse raging sun
Penumbra hooked on crescent moon
Safe distance away switched off
Total darkness fringe taking umbrage

Scuttling cloud vapors wispy memories
Fragile never again hugs snuggled
Crying for transmigrated souls alive
Yet dead caring surrender benumbed

Homeless over-breasted pigeons scavenge crumbs
Stranded corpses puffy drenched feathers
Beaks pecking bloated robin carcasses
Plucking scrawny bones skinning wings

Dr. Charles Frederickson

Garden Tour Cancelled

Last day before everlasting fast
Shrove Tuesday excessive indulgent gourmandise
Masked ball carnival tarnished doubloons
Bourbon Streetwise jazz foregone conclusion

Congealed sacrificial voodoo bloodstream staining
Gingerbread palm whitewashed mansion gables
Strewn windswept blossoms premature wilt
Pitiless magnolias rejecting timeless mercy

Tin cup of graciousness empty
Flipped coin faces wiped clean
Indecipherable heads versus tails dichotomies
Picked pockets turned inside out
