Naive as I’ve always been…

“Naive as I’ve always been
of a knot forged tighter
when dowsed in wet sea
or adversity, as we know –
loops curving into mystery
rough and frayed but at its core
ungrasping how it’s bound”
– Rhonda Arnold / Bespoke, excerpt

Stellar pollen spilt…

“Stellar pollen spilt by celestial wind
Breathing the scent of night indigo in”

Diner fare entices with claims…

“Diner fare entices with claims
Alluring specials daily change
Grab a stool
Counter lean
Read the board
Same old thing
Cook schleps thru a greasy door
Reusing what you’ve seen before
Stock and sinew boiled down
All the comfort nearly drowned”
– Rhonda Arnold / Easy Simmer, excerpt
