Frog Princess

This is one of my favorite poems written by my dearly beloved.  I'm kind of missing her today, so I thought I'd post this for her.

I Didn't See You Coming

I didn't see you coming

I, sufficiently vulnerable

Living life unbearable

Yet, there you were

Standing tall with luscious lips

Slithering a bolt to my hips

Espying a world through your eyes

Letting go of atrocious lies

I absorbed the words spoken that day

Wouldn't let the enemy take em' away

You are my one song

When I no longer belong

I sung

I danced

Succumbed helpless

To your aesthetic…

The Damn Breaks

The damn breaks

My emotions flood

A wave of tears plummets down my cheek

Percolating my heart

The world becomes a blur

My voice crackling

My words a slur

Swollen in ttime

Pondering for the day to come

...when I will be fine

Finding Your Bliss - a poem

It's late, it's late, I should be abed

Asleep and a-dreaming where I lay my head

Instead I'm awake and reluctant to sleep

I don't think it's fear or even too deep

A question tonight, what do you hide

In fear that someone will tell you to…

Shall Be

Perhaps I'm a step too rickety to cast myself as Bro Love & the Loaves, where ever I peg my hats been home. How many how very many FEB thirds? Eighteen years and counting already older than the War on Poverty. A waned sense of has-beanism, yet a master's quest often near light prism(s).  A random mirror tile --- overhead squiggly bulb just so --- wall's image: trapezoidal.  4 corners due east.  Ancient obelisk, pink contrails form that jet triad.  Blue fijord…

“Silver Jig Heels on the Purple Sky Rim”

Blue black sky staring

Back through late night thunderstorm

Retinal ghost trees.

Title from Carl Sandburg, "The Wind Sings Welcome in Early Spring"

a song of flatbush, st paddys and the living and the dead

lucky strikes

I smoked em, luckys for the longest time

with that taste of spice and pepper

like irishmen back then

swore em off a long time ago

you ask me why I’ll tell ya they’re easy

too easy to get used to wanting

like potato chips

and satin drawers

silken on the skin and salty in the mouth

til one…

Ivory walls

I just want

To stay in this room

Ivory smooth walls

The angel with soft steps

Each time I wake

Is there.

I never want to leave

But my departure is planned

before I even get to the

first room, the first feeling

of knowing I am not

who they say I am.

He is so soft like the petals

Of the pale roses from

My childhood that

has since been torn up

From the roots.

My childhood not yours.

I’m here floating

To be…
