Hail pellets
Assisted me in keeping my promise
To you
The sun
Who was not on my side of the street
Though I could feel your rays on my face
My head took a pounding
The frozen shower followed me down the hill
Startled and afraid
I laughed aloud
At the passerby talking wildly on her cellphone
Oblivious to me but not the scene around
Hail among sun
Sun among hail
Sun melted hail
The pain

The Blemish

Silenced by boils
Erupting volcanos of
I devised
a plan
To cap and harness the power
of injustices and wrongdoings prior
Made evident by this skin condition
Vile and unwanted

Tear off the scab and expose the poison
Let the oozing pus
Fall where it may.

I will let them see the monster.

Lingering doubts
Swallow tails and swim
Seemlessly in shallows
Far deeper than any
Diver could ever reach
Beneath the darkened edges of
Shadows and light
Breath and stillness
I wonder.
Mornings rush in
Like pebbles washed clean
The night’s sleep lingers
A haunted dream fingers
the porcelain cup
Of steaming soul.
