Fragments of Childhood (Vol. I) 2018

I have a couple of poems published on Scribe Base. I don’t see a way to re-blog so I am putting the link here.

I am grateful to be included in Fragments of Childhood (Vol. I) 2018.

Summer of Innocence II

Sticky rivers run down my hand.

Under the summer sun,
Sweet chocolate swirl melts on my tongue.

As the song fades in the distance,
Meet me behind the shed.
I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.

Summer of Innocence

A playing card in the spokes

Jumping tree roots and ditches
Multicolored streamers and banana seats

The bike makes the girl
You call me names but smile when no one is looking
And you don’t tell your friends you held my hand

My Childhood Curfew

Shadows elongate in the setting sun and reach for me by moonlight. I narrowly outrun their gangling arms thrashing wildly, as the porch light illuminates my escape.
