daddy saved the best
for last – an exoskeleton
of a cicada

long shed and waiting to be
shared between fearless explorers

maybe the best or

maybe the best or
the worst of us are wrapped in
some mystery – it

takes a different kind of effort
to break, to reveal, to blossom

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: best

we show each other

we show each other
love through
patience
– it’s the
very best
chance we’ve got

** in the absence of The Daily Post from WordPress, here’s your daily prompt: chance

some lines tug at our

some lines tug at our
best memories into the

into the future, others
yank us right into the present

you sound like my mom

we dip into each

we dip into each
weekend like it’s the very
best sauce to go with

we are exchanging

day after day, love

there is an old, new

there is an old, new
paralysis – a hitchhiker
on the most bearable
days, a parasite on
the worst – that pins
down a hand, an
arm, a leg, a morsel
of every hour, crushing
the cells and membranes
of day. we feel
sick about it all
the time, emerge
from the stupor
spasmodically to ask
one another for best and
worst case scenarios,
readjust our negativity
bias for a version
of survival
