FEATURED POEM: Two Doves: And They Were Both Males

Two doves flew by,
Giggling, dripping white. They settled on the near fence.
Kissing and flying free.

*
Two doves flew by
Laughing, possibly at me,
Flirting in the abundant wind,
They didn’t care I’ll see,
But I did, they were both male.

*
Two doves flew by
This time black,
I stretch my hands to hold them,
They were repelled by my lonely spirit.

*
Those doves came back.
I could see they loved it. They both had wings and could not be imprisoned.
I4years was nothing.
Closing my window
I wailed like a baby.
