Martini

Magazine
And martini
Grey Goose
And olives
Distractions
From what
I cannot
Change alone

😀

My head
And heart
Are not 
In sync 
Do we 
Speak
And don't 
Act
Silent
When 
It matters

Jesus

Takes grace
To forgive
And go forward
Into a life
You never imagined
One better
Than you
Could have dreamed
Possible
For the girl
Who didn’t
Have faith
Until
She met
Jesus

Ray at night

I take for granted
Wet grass
Under my feet
The dog’s antics
And writing sessions
At night
With Ray LaMontagne
As my constant companion

Deny

Truth sets free
Lies bring denial
Study history
Or become it
Use gifts
Or lose them
Vote
Or deny
You were free
To begin with

Warning

I've hit it
I will not see
People unmasked
Check that privilege
At the door
I have needles
Put straight
Into my abdomen
To minimize my
Pain
So I'm
Not a thorn
In your side
And all
I ask is
For six feet
And a face covering
I wonder if therapy
Is just so
I can learn
To filter
Not
Crash and burn

Love letter

Newport
You stole
My heart
And captured
My soul
A love letter
To the Ocean State
Flying high
On salt
And sand
Daylight at
Five A.M.
I fell hard
For the place
That made
Me
Slow down
And
Enjoy the ride
