Favorite Quote:
There is freedom waiting for you
on the breezes of the sky,
and you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh, but my darling,
what if you fly?

~Eric Hanson


Black doves settle

on

the yellow harvest

growing within

her heart.

 

Flutter-flutter

can be heard

through a rusty stethoscope

and

cawing

as she tells

the doctor

her symptoms.

 

He buttons up his

leather jacket

stores up all of his

doubts

in the bottom-right

pocket

coughs as he lights

a cigar

looking out into the

foggy street

for her

but smiles as

today's tease

waves a friendly

"Hello".
