every home appears

every home appears
peaceful from the outside. inside,
the dinosaurs on

the windowsill are rebelling
and building a lego trap

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

between the seconds

with a box of Spring

summer lays traps where

ashtray-blackandwhitebreast-

ashtray-blackandwhitebreast-
cigarettegirlgreen
is the title
of an album lost somewhere
along Interstate 40
when we were running
away from the rest of our
lives. you pulled it from
the trunk of that old Rabbit
which we knew would never
make it any further than
Nashville, but surprised
us instead, rolling into
Albuquerque. i can’t really
say if we escaped in the
end, but being here with
you, with those confident
chords
kicking in, traps
me all over again

life is periodically

life is periodically
taken apart, each
segment greased
by the choices
we make
, then
put back together
so that we can
try them out –
like wheels, or
traps, or
heavy doors
