see the way glass bends

see the way glass bends
light, pretends not to be
bothered, causes
worsening distortions,
until light bends
glass, hairline fractures

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

outside looking in,

like it or not, we

like it or not, we
are reflections of one
another, it takes
a good polish
to see the extension

from a distance, a piece

from a distance, a piece
of glass lying on the
pavement is a star, is
a wish, is a wink
to be coveted

upon closer inspection, a piece
of glass exhibits properties
of any other, is cold, is
warm, is prickly
to the touch

there is only glass

there is only glass
between today and
tomorrow –
the answer lies
in how you
look past it

there is always a part

there is always a part
of your heart that leans
in
too close to
home –
when you sigh,
glass fogs, and
the warmth of
those memories
bounces back

there is glass

there is glass
between us, aged
glass that distorts
the meaning
with no inclination
to crack. i’ve
already asked the
super to supply
more padding,
the draft is
becoming
unbearable

when you start

when you start
dreaming that
you’ve won tickets
to Shakespeare
in the Park’s Into
the Woods
performance, beat
the system – that
daily, yet elusive,
virtual ticket
drawing –
everything else
suddenly
makes sense:
the Norseman
Xtreme Triathlon
black t-shirt in the
closet, the Pulitzer
on the mantel, the
Clydesdale prepped
and ready to go in the
backyard, and under
electrochromic glass,
the Key to the City

all night, snow

all night, snow
brushes up
against my
sleep, dusting
a dreaming
cityscape with
spring sugar

the glass was overflowing

the glass was overflowing
with kisses, set stranded
in the center
of a crowded bistro,
so lonely, still so
full of promises
