To the Barista who Called me a Hero.

Nervous, I was walking into a new coffee shop.

I got lost coming here driving in circles hoping to find my new hangout spot.

Rustic and crowded a good sign.

I don’t see a menu board which makes me hesitant.

I get to the counter struggling and shuddering, to decide what I want.

When the barista tells me I am killing it, He says, Today you are a hero.

the clouds moving across the pale blue sky, dripping rain down on my patio. My cats sleeping next to each other, butt to butt, when about two years ago they couldn't stand each other. They breathe in

Cold Rush

Time to increase down the aisle. Opening up to something else that I can't see, to feel the assault of love slap me in the face.


Expressions formed on my flesh leaving being bruised marks, carried out of my sight. Sly smiles creep up my legs causing a handicap, crumbling me to the ground.
