Creatures Whose Backsides Glow

with 4 comments

I’ve already sunk to scribbling
one line
at the top of the page.

Capturing ideas-
fireflies- in canning jars
on muggy Midwest summers night.
Desperate for the magic of creatures whose backsides glow-
headlamps leading us
in on ourselves.
Lighting the inside of the tree house of my mind
(like Miss Suzy with her acorn bowls and fire fly lanterns)

both of us rebuilding
what the scoundrels set asunder.

  2. So, you talk to animals too?
    This is a good quality, when you’re interviewing… seriously,
    it shows that your imagination not only grows wonderful things… but you can make magic happen! I like the feeling I have, now that I’ve read it, thank you.
