& A Porkpie Hat


I’m wearing my shades
& a porkpie hat
Beads of sweat rolling
But I’m cooler than that
I need something to refresh
Coffee makes me too dry
There must be a way
I need to rise up & fly


Tracing These Feelings Back


Tracing these feelings back
Wondering where you began to care
Why did you lose your resolve
& fall in love in the summer’s glare
A palm grove as a backdrop
Kissing quietly behind the reeds
Feeling more than you had expected
Unsure of the coming needs
Layers on sand now everywhere
Breeze feeling cool upon your bare hips
Hopeful surprises found refreshing
Nothing less than passion upon your lips
