“Couple #4”

I’m in Hawaii so I don’t exactly feel like updating Typewriter Poetry every day 🙂 But because it’s raining, here’s a poem from April 4th.

“Couple #4”

We shortcut paradise
with an addict
in lightning canopy rain.

Adrenaline thins.
The road gives;
no walls, no brakes,

no dead end to blame.
A cruel sail
beyond sand, clay. Sea vine roots.

And god–how we screamed at each other, then.

    1. thanks! It’s funny that everyone always thinks these poems are about me…I’d say less than 25% of them are actually from my perspective 🙂

    1. It has been really nice. I leave on the 20th, but I might come back after my birthday.

      I like them, too, especially because of their very human flaws.
