Early morning walks
enjoying the humid breeze
before routines start

if you keep opening hearts
love creates more love

superficial sympathy
disguise inaction

then lose at Scrabble

bordering on offensive
the ways you've grown me

Otherwise pale gums

Otherwise pale gums
now sunset reflects off limbs
radiating flames

I see them around

I see them around
tired and weary expressions
disillusioned men
