Virtue is relative, at best

Not enough poetry

Hey kids. Felt like dragging out some old, crazy poetry and sharing it.

Be afraid.

Ritual 10-12-01

A flaunt of feathers
And a show of strength.
You give me
Preconstructed intellect
In words looked up
This morning
At breakfast.

Is it mating season already?

Looking at your face
Makes my still heart hemorrhage
Because I love you

That one was a school assignment. I gave my teacher fits by putting hemorrhage in a haiku

Mom's poem 3-14-02

I catch myself, extending an arm
To keep stationary.
I catch my breath, holding it in
To fight off the dizziness.
Light-headed from worry and hesitation
I realize the wall I grasp for support
Is nothing
And I wonder;
Why am I holding my breath
When I could be holding you?

Mom requested I write a poem for her wedding and that's what came out.
