Hold Out

Morning glories
bravely blooming
on my terrace
despite chill wind,
blossom all day
stubbornly denying

end of summer.

Anger and fear,
Fermenting into a compote of love and lust,
Stress gets the best of us all.
The further we sink,
The further we fall.

After the act,
The words that you cannot take back now become rust.
Forever fact after it all.
The more that we felt,
The more that they saw.

Maybe They’ll Take a Lunch

Jack says God doesn't exist.
No one has ever seen him.
God says Jack exists and
He can’t wait to meet him.
