KC Bosch Debuts

Manhattan

She comes for
her Manhattan
each day around four,
says it’s for the wifi
but I’m sure there is more.
Laptop as shield,
she sips and she stares.
It’s been almost
three years now,
She still feels him there.
Not quite Green Acres
but together
they came south.
Wide open spaces,
animals needing care.
Spending afternoons
here killing time.
Heavy on the whiskey,
with nothing to do.
She is just having one
but is drinking for two.

Waterford Place

Watching the rain
and smelling coffee
on this low-light morning
takes me to a townhouse
three decades ago.
Wonder bread and jelly,
Sanka with Creamora.
Working clock math
between shower and travel
in a beat-up old Dodge
that seemed more like a hobby
than a dependable ride.
Manager’s duty
on floor sweeper’s pay.
Out on my own with
the freedom I wanted.
Twelve years of school
never felt this hard.
I think it was cold then.
