Poetry Excerpt

20140326-132945.jpg

Here’s an excerpt from my poetry book coming in 2016.

 

Met you in line

1801 Fayetteville Street

Teenagers

Just kids

Playing grown up games

Talking about love and marriage

A few kids

A baby carriage

Swore we were mature enough to make love

Too bad love didn’t make us

Love one another

Time passed

And we drifted apart

Found each other again

Twenty-somethings

Still thinking we’re grown

Still holding on to hopes of love and marriage and kids…

But circumstance locked you down

And impatience made me move on

We’re grown now

Thirty-somethings

And know better than to daydream about love and marriage and kids…

But sometimes I still think of you

As a teenager

At 1801 Fayetteville Street

Wearing a watch, and asking for the time
