twilight. (osi)

' twilight art '

ballet of the haves and have-nots
visible and invisible
a darkness tangoes with the light

his chiaroscuro options
let the day's hard earned dollar find
some orange juice or black coffee

each dusk is a glowing art work
but alchemies of poverty
simply convert that gold to coal *.


[ED-simply convert his gold to coal *..]

spectral .(osi)

' sands '

this trampled sand's a lesser known canvas
here hearty laughters live without a fence
quaint vocabularies of winds and waves
lend to the low profile sorrows credence

so tread lightly over the love stories

soothing this crumbled detritus of time
washing the haunts of a spectral beauty
caressing the lines of a lover's name
written on the shores of a raging sea

waves erase the phantoms of yesterday ..

' wall street (2009 AD) '

so the refracted words
let bent realities
ride tergiversations
to travel past meanings

the train alongside moved
static on a still train
commuters sensed a shift
carried by illusion

trusted waters burst banks
the street,a wall to climb
but a bear and a bull
grappled with dance movements ..
