evening park walk

grapple of heavy and light
concrete and plum blossom
may approach the skirt
perimeter, may peek
under the hat atop

and mind no mosquito cloud
because the three-toed
woodpecker’s agility
is a magnet working charm
and about to wrap the shift

to prepare the terrace
waitress’s way – they said
they – they being they of
the west’s red umbrellas-
Saturday or Sunday

whichever first would warm most
but after the cool bear beneath
the easterly white umbrellas
thinking to come on back
and dig into the stuffed peppers

a few people sat around
and a waitress from last spring
still has employment there
recognize a path, a face,
a deciduous crotch… sweet

About come to timmy

Love to write all kinds of stuff I love writing so many different kinds of stuff it is a constant struggle to narrow the focus to a manageable handful and let the others go. But a few years ago I dipped my fingers into a poetry pie and of all my uncertainties, one thing that is no uncertainty is that it is one passion that must remain, so maybe that's the one. I do dearly delight in chopping up fictional works into stanzas and syllables.

      and I fear you speak too kindly but I appreciate it anyways 🙂

      *been doing some brush-up studies, reminded of the importance of verbs, and I see that’s another something to work on. Always something. But if it was all figured out, it would offer little more thrills.
