Flu bye

I need to write and work on my home
clean every closet and some drawers, arrange clothes by colors, mostly black

I need to purge old papers
do 10 loads of laundry, find someone else to fold and arrange in my full red dresser

I need to groom my dog and send emails
arrange my contacts into groups, make requests and keep my promises

Missing him, I take a pic of the sunrise and text it
A hard line brings his warm voice to me, it cups
my ear turned cold from just one night away

Daughter awakes, breakfast and she twirls
for today's wardrobe approval and I nod and smile
"Only you can pull that off"

Late and calm this morning
hearts breathe steady through mouths turned up at the corners
Having is better than needing


  1. So beautiful, Frankie. You are awesome.

  2. Lovely. I like the pic-text-voice stanza, well the others, too. But that grabbed me the most.

  3. Evocative on every level. Truly beautiful.

  4. hmmmmmmm I wanna know what is up in your life....love it and you!

  5. Thank you!! Goosebumps! I love it. Karen, that's my favorite too.
