once burned…

a grin so wide it hurts
that floating feeling of bliss
vanilla and cinnamon lingers
stars whirling overhead
red light pulsing off/on
fading drone of insects
scuffing soles cracked pavement
key jangles fumble for lock

where have you been!

stiff shoulders shaking
sharp bite of clear liquid
vibrating syllables slashing
hurled teary accusations
crashing echoes heavy door
profound silence rubbing ring
music chirps open phone
yes, see you again tomorrow

good night, mother
