A.D. Winans (2)

A.D. Winans


monks in
have no need for

2 Short Poems

I stare into silence
Empty space has no vision
Restless ghosts
Eat my words


71 going on 72
A tiger escapes the zoo
One dead two maimed
The moon mocks my shadow
keeps gaining ground on me
like a child playing leap-frog
with an old man and his cane

A.D. Winans

A.D. Winans


Chill of winter in the air
Misty fog giving way
To a light rain
Cars spewing deadly exhaust fumes
Windshield wipers flapping like the
Wings of birds in migration
Stone faces hidden behind steering wheels
Give no quarter yield only to the
Red traffic stoplights
Pedestrians looking like mannequins
Turn into penguins scurrying
Across the street
On their way to work
Boarding the morning bus
Pressed together like preserved butterflies
Between the pages of an old
And frayed book


He was a pica
She was elite
He was after
A home run
She liked to stop
At third base
He liked lobster
She liked cracked crab
He played doubles
She played singles
He took showers
She took baths
He ate Chinese
She ate Italian
He saw sex as dessert
She saw it as an appetizer


I have sat one too many evenings
watching old men and women
eat their last meal
one eye on the desert the
other on the obituary
