Pale Burgers

Pale Burgers

Dear Gluten

I miss you.

I didn’t know how much I would miss you till we parted ways.

Soft as a cloud burger buns-

now replaced with saw dust fibres-

carving up my mouth.

Gluten-

How I miss you.

Doughnuts?

More like Dough Not.

In this day and age.

Gluten,

Why did you break up with me?

My body doesn’t miss you.

But my heart does.

Oh,

Gluten,

How I miss you.

Slowly Surely/Rambling Storm

Slowly Surely/Rambling Storm

Sheltered hearts in a rambling storm-

Slowly surely they embrace.

Finger clenched upon one another.

Fearful-

Scared…..

That they might…just might.

Slip away from one another.

Hesitating,

To look at one another.

Reflecting insecurities…

Of dreamt up fears-

yelling in sheltered ears.

Echoing-

Upon a rambling storm.

Slowly surely they embrace?
