Two Poems

Summer’s Back

Cherries blossomed
And ripe for picking, hot
Humid weather, cool
Gentle breeze, greened grass and trees
Longer periods of joyful
Daylight

Blood Poem

I open up a vein
Bleed out my thoughts on paper,
Paint a canvas into a blood
Mural with twisted barb wire
Metal frame covered in
Thorny black roses
Forgetting about death.
