Balmy Breeze

January thaw
I open windows
to warmer air

~

dog walk
a burst of balmy air greets me
in my puffy parka

Bourbon, Brine and Birthday Cake

late to celebrate
the moon is my oyster tonight

~

wolf moon
each oyster casts off
its cool light

~

wolf moon
on our lips
bourbon and brine

~

oysters in the old mansion marble stories in their shells

~

a sip of the wolf moon cycles in oyster brine a howling sea

~

the wolf moon
the mansion’s marble
the oyster’s brine
a poet’s charcoal etching
rain tonight
