Translucent

Standard

If I could be translucent now

I’d open up my heart to show

The thoughts and feelings that can go

Throughout my insides head to toe.

Translucent.

Translucent.

If I allowed the world to see

Whatever is inside of me

Then I suppose that I might be

Translucent metaphysically.

Translucent

Translucent

And that might prove quite interesting

You’d feel sensations from a sting

Or of a Monarch fluttering

Around my finger’s wedding ring.

Translucent

Translucent

But what if you should see my guts?

I do not think you’d like that much

Unless you’re fond of watching such;

The pulsing of a body’s mush.

Translucent

Translucent

I think that I should leave this there

So we don’t need to see the end

Of this dramatic poetry

On possible translucency.

I’m gonna stand by my window pane

Till you’ve gone away, so I feel no pain.

Prose Writings

Standard

I started again to write short stories in 2015. Click “Prose” for short fiction samples.

Cowering with his wife and their baby spiders in the lee of the rock, he lifted his eyes to the planet Earth, and watched as it pulled them in closer.
