Sunset Apartments

Drinking coffee in the park from a brown bag with an old thermos inside, I am benched. Living long is squeezing me away from the center to the quiet periphery. Here there are fewer knowing looks...

Byronic Misanthrope

Huddled in the open air. The restaurant umbrella tassels spread out and flail in the light breeze. In a squinting day, the under umbrella is heavy, and the dark mass that makes it so is bent close...

It is a poem. It's a Nick special with titanium bones and ripped muscles. Sometimes you just want to slash out. I loved it. No helpful critique. Sorry Nick!

Goodbye Love

bound to the rhythm
looking down at my face
climbing that mountain

her tears are raining into me
full of never hold back
welling

she stiffens
a sob of heartache and release

Caught

no I say
softly with tears

she is drunk
walking me backwards

into a tiny trailer bedroom
saying

what should never be said

I really enjoyed reading this, and it took me somewhere. But something about this was too elusive for me. Then again, I never got any dates when young because I couldn't read signals. Women had to...

Wonderful imagery, but I didn't like it being cast a scene. In particular, the hands and where they were and the movements of the two was distracting.

As an exercise to try and rethink the poem, I...

Enough

head hung
eyes anywhere but meeting yours
kicked too much

puppy
master shy
wanting anything but what always happens

insults fly in 7th grade science
but not this time

Old Coffee

the coffee is old cold bitter
and I am cafe cornered
by the window rain

watching up and down umbrellas
stamping shuffling feet
polite and shedding wet

walking behind apron'd and dark hair...

head down
uncombed dirty blond

he is everywhere in the house
and this closet only
holds no memory

after years of happy alone
his smile
