Beggar's Benediction





How is it?
One click of a key
Steals your coy, half-grin
From me
Cerulean
Of summer-sky
Swept
To a bleak
And gray
Good-bye

How is it?
Coveting a page
From yesterday’s
Elusive stage
Can prompt
Quick poetry
Of tears
Or
Season-smiles
For yester-years

How is it?
One click of a key
Evokes
Familiar misery
‘Mornin’ darlin’’
And ‘farewell’
Falling prey
To the
Same
Knell?

How is it?
That the paradise
Of laughter
In a lover’s eyes
Dissolves
In oceans
Instantly
With one half-breath
Click of
A key?
