Two short poems

Here are two poems I entered in a recent contest for members of the El Paso Writers' League.

Canalis dripping
Creosote scent fills the air
September rains fall

A canali on my house

Funny Words
Funny words tickle my head
Like kumquat and doodad
And stuff best left unsaid.
But words I like best
Love, friend, and the rest
Keep me cozy and warm
As I sleep in my bed.
