strawberry leaves, forever

i hear the to and fro sounds

of a pin-striped towel

drying off shoulders

back and buttocks

i draw nearer

draped in terry towel grace

wet hair, wet face

he kisses me

nips my bottom lip

lively winds blow

the kind that links

improv to years

the kind that

finds beetles

running through

strawberry leaves

hiding , finding, reminding

wandering hand in hand

by mary ann blinkhorn

of sun and sand


the paper

that i’ve

ceased to

write upon






precisely real


loud outburst

save it

keep the story

below the surface


without compromise

without exception

absorbing the sounds of

half-finished voice


bouquets of stems

no false faces

no road

no trees

the everlasting new


another round of

ready, set, go

another round

that melts right into

the beginning

of mirror’s words

another round of measure

spoken with softer lips


labeled storage boxes

of sun and sand

a little black dress, dry cleaned

dancing around the face of a clock


dry winter hands

clever eye spots a

poor man’s art

decidedly building

on the decided


one egg beaten

one in the pan

four in the carton kept cold


when all was said and done

it left you

with better tolerance

didn’t it, allen?

me too

walkabout – the importance of writing good premises

she walks around

regarding her premises

naked riddles

viewed by fully-clothed mindsets

seeing nothing


she pauses

dresses them up a bit

adds familiar hats


she walks around

regarding her premises

naked riddles

sporting familiar hats

viewed by fully clothed mindsets

seeing nickels and dimes, now


she pauses

enters her closet

returns with accessory items

applies them to premises

showing off their favorable uniqueness


she walks around

regarding her premises

naked riddles

sporting familiar hats

and accessory items

showing off their favorable uniqueness

viewed by fully clothed mindsets

seeing nickels and dimes


and a few dollar signs

tea at 3

sitting at table 

rose and blue laugh merrily

as picasso

playing with sugar cubes

trembles with joy

and feeling de light

escapes into state-of-the-art idea

he dampens cloth napkin

with cold tea

wipes his brow

please keep this to yourselves, he says

we’re in this together
