Chill, Mr. Man

Hey, anger,

Slow right down

And breathe…

Deeper now, that’s it,

Behave.

Chill, anger,

Let it go,

That weight…

See, anger,

Better ways

To pass the time,

You’ll be fine,

Now just breathe…

Deeper!

Hey, mister, heart

Can’t take the constant strain,

Uncross your eyes,

Your legs,

The frown,

Climb down…

Hey, mister,

Don’t look at me that way,

It’s only sound advice,

The facts…

Hey, mister

I’ve got your back,

Hey, man,

Stick a flower in,

Relax….

And breathe.

 

 

Wild The Night

Cast shadows in the cutting darkness,

Bitter winds without,

Keening darkly, piercing souls.

Grey to black the skies succumb,

Hell’s fortune takes a hold.

 

Cloaking stars, this shroud of night

Bedevilled,

Fraught intention.

Limbs yield, submit to strength,

Trees sway in rapt attention.

 

Too chilled the dusk

To venture forth,

Impending nightfall blurs the track,

A wanted warmth remains inside

Where comfort welcomes back.
