German Fun

eucalyptus breath
calm nerves
beads of sweet

geriatric germans
bobbing buoyantly
wrinkly and wet

ferris wheel

german carnies
hitting on me
he was scared to ride

young man, long apron
looks bored at the slushy stand
oktober rings near

big boobs
squeezed into
bavarian dress, beer

flashing flickering
dancing prancing
colorful lights

dozens of dangling
legs on the ride
zip up zip down

he works the lights
in the german opera house
free late fall show

paper pen scissors
artistic regional words
actors dressed in black

fish tanks, moss
brightly colored skeletons
modern german art

blond girl
kicking ball
pink shorts

street cafe
old cathedral
sound of skateboards

My Warm German Apartment

two empty beers
and a half full wine glass
sit on the table

hertz brennen
leiben fuer

red, black, and white
cards in a large pile
pretty lace table cloth

ein bettdenke
zwie hertzen

my wet
polka dot bathing suit
sits on the heater

very german
to have a window
for a bathroom door

die krankenwagen

i hear the streetcar
line sixty-one
from my window

stale smoke
stale marriage
both linger in room

great american
and french authors
on german shelf

deep breath

in silence
grinding of teeth
sweat on brow

big black spider
on white wall
quick, but still dead

the pillow
kisses my head
on cool german night

cool friday night
two rented films
sweet english selected

my german window
open, river breeze
reading about old france

early autumn night
the street car

the church bells
r - i - n - g
every hour

warm blanket
murder stories
cool german night

Game of Solitaire

always by myself
life - a game of solitaire
waiting here for you.

Stupid Passwords

work passwords keep me
from doing my daily work
the servers hate me :(

Dog Tears

mountain nightly breeze
blows through backyard trees
early september

howling dog heartache
left behind for a long hike
forlorn doggy cries

No Grass at All

best friend envious
i don't have a family, mortgage,
or drive bmw

is the grass greener
when there is no grass at all
on my side of fence

Email Ashes

i reread the last
of our emails to each other
at peace now

deleted emails
our relationship ashes
blow through cyberspace

left facebook
there was no point
without you in my audience

i hope that someday
when i don't hate you so much
we can again be friends

scorned, harsh words said
to make you hate me always
to be free from you
