so many words
for winter sorrow
yet another
blank face
from the moon

  wheelchair patients
congregate in the hallway
so many words
dancing in my head
waiting to be set free

    mouth ajar
in the dentist’s chair
with so much to say
and no way to say it

She tells me
when taking a selfie
always remember
three things –
angle, angle, angle

  grass blades
swell between the fence
and weed barrier
how easily the white lie
slips from my tongue

    her pause
as she applies fresh lipstick
as if makeup
could put a better face
on her criticism
