Concentrate, relax, remember to breathe.
If I do these things, sometimes I
can force myself to imagine the feelings of wings.
The flex and pull of muscles,
a gentle weight,
the color of light filtered through feathers;
they become part of me.
What a glorious thing it would be,
don’t you think?

I would love to have wings. I'd adore it.

I looked at him, he looked at me-
but nothing happened (don’t be naïve)!
This isn’t a dream or a movie
where the girl gets the guy.
This is real life, so we
said goodnight and goodbye.

I have a whole bunch of poems started, but I can't think of endings for them. And most of them are better than this one...

She’s got a heart of solid
silver-coated air.
Not gold, still nice, but
not much else there.

You know! That person that isn't really mean & might even be nice, but they just seem kinda empty?
Yeah, that one.

Elegance can be achieved
simply by taking normality
and stretching it out.
Confident in clean lines,
it subtly leans towards the sky
and whisper-shouts,
“Hello, darling.
Lovely to see you again.”

It's very difficult to be elegant when you're short & squishy, but I'll manage it someday.

Comfort lies waiting for me in neat columns and rows,
stacks and aisles all coded and ready to go.
Such tranquility the library offers,
gently bending my spine
into a curve of concentration, intent
upon someplace other than mine.

I admit it- I love books.
Always have, always will.

I sleep sometimes the way I imagine that animals must sleep-
aware only of darkness and passing body heat
(friend or enemy? danger or safety?)
Other times I dream in a vibrant arrangement
of colors- yellow, green, red, blue.
Last night, however, I dreamt of you.
My secret?
I didn’t want to.

I used to want to dream about him, but I never did. Now I don't want to dream about him, & I do.
Life is so contrary, sometimes.
