Girl crush

From the apartment unit across the way,
I secretly watched you last night,
my eyes affixed
to your sexy slits of eyes,
your locked gaze,
as you 
scrolled
with lightning speed
through a feed
on your smartphone
while sitting by your sliding
patio door smoking —
your face lit
like a come-hither sliver
of moon

Glory of rain

Downtown is canceled
for a rainy vacation,
and everything is down
for the count.

Even street life
is an erased background.

A glory of rain outside,
the sky has logged off.

No more messages here,
no more images.
This is the grey we have
until further notice.
