04.16.21 Cloak & Dagger Days (Poem)

From “Out of the Dark,” my poetry book for April-June 2021, here’s “Cloak & Dagger Days.” Kind of a ‘moving on’ tale, which is what I’ve been doing the past few years. Finding myself again. -BB


“Cloak & Dagger Days”

by Brian Bolding


.

Flying by the seat

Of whatever cute horny latino I happen to meet

Mouth wide open, all agape

It’s cloak and dagger days

Oops! Time to part our ways

.

Get in Get out

That’s how it used to be my love

Totally smitten, but when push comes to shove

Can’t get too close, tell them to get the F out

Flying by the seat of my pants

Of whatever cute white boy I happened to romance

.

All of those ups & downs, only to find

I just wanted, I just needed some peace of mind

Then I find myself alone in my mid 40’s one day

Time to start over again, reflect, time to renew

Building up my strength… This is my patchwork life without you.
