Samantha’s Daily Poem

The toothpaste incident



The mood clung to me
like brambles
and it took
toothpaste
all over his face
an absurd gesture
of love
to wrestle the storm
away.

Sunset



The sunset tonight
painted the clouds
tacky pink
like the nail polish
a little girl would wear
or maybe God
just felt like getting
dressy.

First words



Any day now
he will speak
and it will be like leaving
the theatre
on a sunny afternoon
so bright and loud
I will cheer for him
but I will also miss
the companion of my guesswork
a part of my brain
always tuned in
watching
learning
his language of sounds and slaps
a study of his being
unanchored to the sureness
of words.

Our favourite restaurant



Our favourite restaurant
is covered in Persian rugs
the lights are dim
and candles flicker in opaque balls
like pumpkins on Halloween.

We sit on cushions
at low tables made of slabs of lumber
our hands finger the bark
a tree’s memoir.

The room is narrow
we sit across from another couple
too close not to
smile
it is intimate
but not private
the flamenco dancers pound
carnal beats
it is too ripe for small talk
so we are reckless
with questions
a volley of nerve.

They leave first
don’t look back
it is always like this
at our favourite restaurant
we will never see them
in the hard angles of the day
we would not recognize them
we would have nothing
to say.

The fog



The fog hovers
colouring the landscape
with chalk
as though the world has aged
its colour and shapes
softened
faded
like the veil
on a girl as she walks
towards her husband
to be
when it lifts
his face is beautiful
but sharp.
