retro places – for 3WW

when i think of it now

there must have been a lethal hinge between us

offering only a limited angle of rotation and need

 

stray dog coughs up a dinner bell

a stopped bell

a tarnished bell

turns around and heads home

 

as time passes

i stand outside

my faithful shadow appearing taller

perhaps it’s the straight posture

the bold song on lips

the cold knots, discarded

the sharpened pencil

in wooden coat

writing and rewriting,

“the mind matters–just as much as the heart”

This week’s words:  hinge, lethal and need
