DRIFTWOOD
Big brother can envision blood of hopelessness
Tempest brews in coffee mug
Only cause its still morning, not yet noon
When shadows line up something gets lost
Can self be found in pouting lips of curls and whey
Man Friday, Man Friday, where art thou
Lost voices cry, in sand, of beach,
Like wilted discoverers

  2. Striking images, Gillena. Love the tempest in the coffee and the play of shadows. And yes, I haven't never read a bit of driftwood I haven't loved. :-)
