A drop of blue

frosting
at the corner
of your mouth. Is this the
excuse I’m longing for to touch
your lips?

Partly Right But Seriously Wrong

She said
You craved love- too
Much was never enough.
Turns out I misheard. What she’d said
Was “blood.”

This poem was inspired by a prompt by @robertleebrewer as I’m working my way through his 2010 Poem A Day site. The challenge was to write a poem with the title “Partly (blank).” Thanks, Robert.

Usually

Halfway’s
a good place to
pause and consider the
road taken… unless you’re crossing
one now.

Camaraderie

Feels good:
Laughing with friends
By the school, each of us
Waving a poster of a dead
Fetus.

Craving

Cupcake
gone in two bites,
I lick my frosted lips.
The baker nibbles at me with
His eyes.

But I’m Not Fat Freddy

Mom’s cat,
Li’l P, missed her
litterbox- Yes- with pee-
and soaked my shoe. That cat hates me
but why?

Sharks Ate My Brother

There’s Mike.
Hard to see much
Through all the blood and waves.
Dove in to see if sharks below.
Arrrgh! Yep.
