"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2017 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw or get my first book and see how the work evolves with new books rolling out next year.

The last best pretend


The last best pretend

Under the buzzing street light
     I was the Princess Bride.   
You were Indigo Montoya.
     Two guys were there,
Were they princes, giants, heroes?
     I don’t remember.  . .
They were sword fighting,
     I was demure,
you were brilliant.
     It was the last best pretend,
and it was the best one of all.
