Dallas – Late Afternoon in December


Afternoon light

bounces from  

the pictures you

nailed to the walls

that kept us out.  

Soft power blue

and damask silk

still speak of 

unmet promises,


the late afternoon

light is begging me

to forgive you. 

Instead, I furtively

polish glass with the 

hem of my blouse

and ignore the empty

footsteps that follow

me into the night.

These are scary times. Prepare yourself to take a stand for what is right. God damn it, just be kind!

  1. Very interesting… allowing us to read into this and paints on both sides of the canvas, one facing the wall in darkness and the other facing into the room filled with daylight.
