Clocking Out

Poem By Gabrielle Shutt

Relieve my worried mind, I pray.

With gentle words and salty lips.

When the clock punches out

And the autumn sun dips behind vermillon clouds

To rest in sultry silence.

Magic At My House

In the closet there is a pair of shoes

The stay in the box kind of shoes.

Picture Window

The summer sky is falling

In featherlight chips of ochre and scarlet.

Chapter 1

In the beginning there was you.

You were the sun and the moon.

I Have Written

I have written words upon pages, napkins, and receipts,

Enscribed them in the air with fingertips,

Inspiration Strikes

Inspiration is an old 60 watt light bulb

Swinging bare and dusty in the corner of small room.
