a metaphoric title and not quite what that may entail


Johnnie Walker

betwixt verdant cascading foliage
pupils dilate and irises shimmer
with trepidation Walker ambulant

rejection waves its cold shoulders
scorn of self or others imagined
forgiveness a desert expanding

Johnnie came home ever parched
a dryness assails his tongue and
heart in attic now collects dust
