Small Steps in the Return to Words

you really have to touch the ones you love
telephones and web cams are not enough

you know that you have moved on from a love
when angered at the woman who hurt him

this sudden, burning pain in my stomach
has made me into a better woman

The Self-Destruct Button

Can We Every Destroy the Self-Destruct Button?

Tall and Skinny
And Artistic
Poet, Actor, Painter
I’ve done it over and over
With the same result
The self-destruct button
Always wins
And I always lose
To the girl who
Wants to push
The button
With him
