Late Train Nerves

Twittering Tale #127 – 12 March 2019

She was due in on the 7:10…

8pm, dark, weren’t trains precise?

He’d rehearsed what he was going

To say a dozen times, smoked

A pack of Marlboro’s

Throat raw as his nerves

Heartbeat jumping…

What if she’d changed her mind

Wasn’t coming home?

Train was pulling in…

For better or worse.

This Is Our Place

Bored with burgers, pizza

Hungry for something new

Exciting…we drove around

Exploring, found old part of

Town, a little scary but we

Were young-in-love-adventurers

And there it was, crazy sign

Lured us into best un-celebrated

Restaurant for international cuisine

This is our place now!

Ageless Romance

Twittering Tales #125 – 26 February 2019

Sweet piercing passion

Escape from ennui

Tossed pillows, wrinkled sheets waft

Raw perfume, afternoon romance

Did I say I love you?

Yes…you relish the moment your

Name becomes dawn-out keening

On my lips

We aged together

Not realizing we’re “old”…like

Teenagers soon craving “next time”.
