September poetry challenge – Days 1 and 2

For the month of September, I am going to write and post one poem per day. I am doing this on a dare, because I am a sucker for dares.

Here are the first two poems:

September 1 2014:

Condensation

Miniscule droplets
Lump together on the edge.
My hand will crush them.

September 2 2014:

Flu season

Feral.
With a hiss.
Something
Stirring there,
In the tall grass.
It starts…
Feral,
It must be.
Exposed
Its little claws
To do what it
Does best.
Scratches
Away, eh?
Digging
For food, though
This season
Is barren.
Scratches
Harder still.
Stupid
Persistence,
Would you quit that?
Guess not.
Fun fact:
Classified
As a…
Butterfly.
Ever seen one
Flutter?
Flutter,
Dainty and
Gentle…
That’s some shit

Just like
Laundry
Detergent
That fails
To solve all
Existential
Crises.

I hate
Falling
In love.
