Cardinal

The cardinal came to see me
He didn’t notice the dog
Standing stock still, vigilant for rabbits
Until he’d already caught her eye
Smooth landing became push-off
I never got to say Hello

Once upon a time

My bones are made of words

And I am made of stories
Of grimmest fairy tales
And epic odysseys
Of horror and thriller
And mystery too

I bleed in ink on pages
And sleep in paragraphs
I need to tell you what happened
When you were only told
That they all lived happily
Ever after
