Waiting In Line

 

 

Feet stand sure.

Controlled stare.

Calm breathing.

Strangers speaking

wasted conversation.

Paper tongue remarks

falling on heavy ears.

Minutes elapse.

Bodies proceed forward.

Relief arrives at last

with the cashier.

 

 

 

 

 

Super Girl’s Boy

 

 

She overshadows

overpowers

devours you.

She could stomp

on you like a grape.

But maybe

he needs to be her baby.

So he doesn’t dare

tug on Super Girl’s cape.
