she looked away and let
the words stay hidden
so that they may not be
bitten by the teeth of
her dissatisfaction
but beware to the ones
who push her buttons
for a reaction out of jest –
because she’ll tear down
the best of you and settle
for nothing less

learned

they tell us to wish upon stars
connect the dots
read between lines
give pennies for thoughts
catch fireflies in jars
to eat cheese with wine
and never to throw precious
pearls before swine
follow your heart
choose mind over matter
never walk beneath
any old ladder
full stops at stop signs
red and yellow, kill a fellow
live and let live
don’t make mountains
out of mole hills
kill two birds with one stone
people in glass houses
should never throw stones

the liar & the stones

kill two birds with one stone
but the meaning of his words
were long, long gone – so a
flock overtook his throne
and they watched on,
perched high upon wires
all along they had known
he was the most cowardly liar of all liars
hid his pride behind a single
rock, his tiny ivory tower
always casting the first stone
chasing after bones, crying wolf
