A Reality Sandwich and An Ice Cold Existential Beer

ashland, new hampshire—

two in the afternoon

a burger with a thick slice of onion,

mustard on the side

and a cold bottle of beer.

 

looking out a large pane window,

everything from where I sat

looked fine.

you pass by noticed,

i nodded with a smile.

 

and you

quickly

looked away

and everything disappeared.

 

no,

not of course,

my sandwich.

 

just an old flame

puffed in a white cloud of history,

dowsed by another sip

of an ice-cold beer.

Weathered Swing [Shadorma]

~Yesterday~

Course old rope

Worn smooth in child’s hands

Seat of dreams

Grip loosens

Jump gleefully into sand

Falling only twice

 

~Today~

Holding hands

Watching the sun rise

Creaking swing

Swaying smooth

Humming together in time

Our first meeting song

 

~Tomorrow~

Without frown

With our last jump long

Pushing feet

Toes to Toes

Sunset’s breeze tuning our song

Rocking weathered swing

          I want to thank Rall [rallentanda.blogspot.com] for introducing this poetic form to me….The Shadorma is a Spanish poetic form made up of a stanza of six lines. (sestet) with no set rhyme scheme. It is a syllabic poem with a meter of 3/5/3/3/7/5. It can have many stanzas, as long as each follows the meter.
