January Afternoons




MorgueFile


light is long on short days.
our eyes are drawn to it
measuring out its warmth
stretching its path
on wooden floors
from one room to the next

i will its heat
inside me
warping planks
pulling up nails
transfixing eyes

late afternoons are like that
its just the nails
that I am not too fond of
anymore.

New Year's Edits

cursors have a mind of their own
bounce from end to end
edit thoughts 
as i type blind

caffeine fix
not yet taken hold

A bit of lightheartedness of this new year's morning.
