Santa Monica Sun

Along a winding path

Paved sun-glazed cement

Baked with a hazy grey sealant

With summer shoes

Raking the rocks

Along the freckled

Grass

Sunscreen scented fragrances

Illuminating hiatus

Under the strung out

Santa Monica Sun

Braided Greens

Braided greens

On the west end

Seems

Over to top

Beside the ocean

Unequal Fence

A fence runs along

The seems of a property

Judicious in its connecting pieces

Separating the easements

All fences have the imperfection

Of construction

And deterioration

A fence from the ground

To the sky

Coordinated Volcano

The coordinated volcano

Knows when to blow the steam

When to burn the smoke

When to break at the seems

It can shut its leaks

And wait for the weak

When the coordinated volcano

Blows

Onion Opinions

Onion opinions

The popular trend

Begin again and again

With the same refrain

Said for days

A lazy sleep

Will wish me away

From the stinky options

Of spoiled onion breathe

Upon a delicate day

Casts shadows of death
