As a Whisper 


As a whisper, you adhere to limbs

the child in me wants angeld
you are the first of the seasonwritten in the snow

changing my landscape

letting me know

to be a child

Tip my head back

stick out my tongue

you will kiss it

with your cool moisture

I would not have noticed you

unless I looked for you

as love is in the air

your coolness is a breath 

of freshness

No howling today with winds a flurry

Just a whispered  touch

Brings brightness to the desolate limbs

as love brings hope to the heart.


Slippery Slope

Complacent citizenry

Corrupts the Congressperson

collecting a corrosive consensus 

Conceding their constitution

Contributing to corruption

Clearing the course

Collapsing the core

Consenting to Chaos
