New Twitter Poems

All poems by me, just to clarify….
====
Young,
I invested
in the stories
of old men
and found myself
mourning
lost comrades
far too soon.
===
Wrap cold sorrows
in music.
Dance past death.
===
Devils flash their teeth
while gnawing
angel wings.
===
Snow melt:
grateful tears
for spring.
===
Brittle memories
leave crumbs
on the floor
when eaten
by time.
===
Finger traces
quilt stitch
in the dark.
===
Empty days
tossed over my shoulder
in nonchalance
now pried loose
from fearful grip
===
Puffed rice cake
Styrofoam squeak
on teeth.
===
White porcelain doorknob
on weathered shed
opens upon dust.
===
Burnt onion clings
to flour, salt and pepper:
Mom’s fried chicken.
===
Stabbed by a shadow
but I kept walking.
===
Unloved
I chew hearts
for half price
the day after
Valentine’s Day.
===
Full moon
dusted clean
by swaying limbs.
