Playing around with words that rhyme again maybe it will help me to write this childrens book. This is not kids book material but things that just keep pouring out of me as dwell on old memories.

Throw it all away

Leave it all behind

shut the fossiled door

conclude the final rhyme

Give unto yourself

one last long dreadful look

story is over

lesson learned

now its time to close the book


Amber lamplight love

sheets cinched up like a sack

slowly sinking now

looking down but never back

Two hearts of concrete bricks

two lips to sweeten the song

one body is all that will remain

in this graveyard in which we belong
