Cherita #7

fool rolls over in bed

sleeps through the stench
of soiled sheets

hits the snooze
on life’s wake-up call
and decays

Cherita #6

child went to the river

learned to bait
worms on his hook

released a dozen fish,
but love of nature snagged
was a keeper

Drip Dry

drip dry
madly flutter
old shell, cracked, fell away
wet, new life shivers in the breeze
strong feet hold fast to the bark of the branch
an upside down captivity
short delay, swallowtail
takes flight once wings
drip dry
