Molasses Space

Molasses Space

A Poem by Ty

Time is slow. Molasses space.

Whether I'm falling into grace
Feeling it.
Floating out in space,
Seattle without rain
Raisin in the sun
Rays of light speckle her face
In shade it's freckles in their place
Or a danish in the morn
And just for a moment I'm content
Peaceful days
Makes me appreciate when skies are more clear
A graceful sway that imitates piano keys striking chords
When she's listing off her favorite authors
Smith, Diaz, Baldwin, and Davis
Her vinyl's, The Doors.
Sam Cooke and Tennessee Waltz,
Silly Love Songs
And just for a moment
She's content and forgets
The one that holds her heart is a thousand miles away
Each phone call reigns heavy with weight and emotion
Burning passion
Molasses, charcoal, and tinfoil
Sweet but bitter
Each word savored
A golden ticket or token.
