Interstice Blues

Last day of July.
It's too late for Winter yet
too early for Spring.

Fear of the unknown
stops you. But it's all unknown...
- unless you know it.

the quiet. thoughts sound off
in the darkness.

It's like totally Thursday!

Thoughts: A Suite

The rain is falling
It makes me think about you
But I don't know why

Saying everything
Except the one thing we can't
Dancing around it

Autumn creeping in
Then turning just slightly back
Teasing, like I do

Long slow wet juicy
Music plays on your tv
Kiss me deeper now

Pensive, quiet ride
I turned off the radio
And just remembered

Your eyes look in mine
See something new, something real
Come on, I dare you

Aisle one infant,
when Mum refuses sweets, shrieks
then sulks in silence.
