Cotton Candy on Fisherman's Wharf

It was fun to watch the tourists,
Enjoy the wharf on a foggy day.
They fed seals, bought cotton candy,
That disappeared as they walked away.

Spun sugar is very testy,
When moisture is in the air…
Minutes from paying two dollars,
Their paper cone was bare.

Flash Romance

At thirty beats per minute,
We thought we had it all…
Fame, hot style and dance moves,
Under the bright mirrored ball.

Here is where we fell in love,
We were the dance floor’s show…
Holding hands, we twirled here,
We spun a year and then let go.

Conrad's Safe in the Backseat

Conrad and I found a forest trail,
A moss-covered path lined with ferns…
I named the scent, “Millennium”.
After the sweet rot an eon earns. 

Conrad, being a worry wort,
Pulled me back towards the Salish Sea.
Preferring the backseat of my car,
He felt safer indoors near me.
