Infamous Last Words – an Angry Two Sentence Story

“We don’t need no damn government socialist healthcare or free fucking food or anything else,” he repeatedly declared right up to the moment his philosophy and body simultaneously failed. Apparently, one can die of stupidity.


Cautious Abandon Chapter 4 – A Beginning


And the things you can’t remember tell the things you can’t forget
that history puts a saint in every dream.
Tom Waits

A Beginning

The days passed on quickly
You know how that goes
Gentle fellow travelers through time

They had a chance meeting
After a decade or so
Pleasing, the years had been kind

She was training a new puppy
He walking the same dog
Changes staying the same

Then moved on together
Through transparent years
Feeling that don’t have name

osv ’14


An Awkward Moment

NaPoWriMo Day 8 – Cautious Abandon

Chapter 3

Well this is awkward
We don’t have one


An Awkward Moment

They both arrived
To an affair
Both showed up stag

They had split up the stuff
But not the friends
Breakup rules remained vague

They shared a few words
But eyes never met
Something basic had gone

But easy to listen
For the first time in years
Knowing they both had moved on


Cautious Abandon – Chapter 2



Chapter 2

In Transition

The first few days flew by slow
Fractured broken routine

He missed her some most the time
Needed bad to wean

Daily walks gone quiet and slow
His dog felt something wrong

She yearned for the larger pack
While he hummed a lonesome song

This phase lasts for awhile
His first thought every day

Must look forward to change to come
Budding spring is on the way


Cautious Abandon – A short story poem

Cautious Abandon


Chapter 1

The End

He watched another walk away
Her critique
He didn’t share

When asked what he
Really thought
Claiming nothing there

My thoughts my own
The low voice sang
Deep within his head

Then wondered what
The dog would think
Of next Sunday’s unshared bed
