NaPoMo Day 21

day 21.jpgearly bow season, 2013.  photo by billy coe.


(all saints day)


here we are having a couple of beers.

too windy to bow hunt & so we drink.

you don’t shut up & i’m trying to think:

if i’m not hunting, then why am i here?


i no longer love you but we’re still friends.

you want me to move back in & be your

woman, but that seems to me a huge bore.

you’re ok in small doses – it depends


what we’re doing & why.  but today

is just another fucking waste again.

drinking instead of hunting is a shame.

hungover tomorrow – & then i’ll pay.


but – how beautiful the sunset tonight.

the clouds dark against the sun’s fading light.
