Release (Scraped Knees)

the leery tabby cat
inched closer,

pushing towards
this little girl
and issuing a

she woke up,
spotting branches
in the corner
and she tried
to defy sensibility,
clinging to a limb
and surrendering her stance.

the street smells
of banana peels
and our sky,
stippled by thoughts
buried expertly
in the creases
of love seats,

the leather’s
integrity questioned.

I am happy to announce that Scraped Knees, my first collection of poetry and flash stories, is now available on Amazon. Give it a read, climb a tree, make your way down, and climb it again. Thank you.
