ISO Another Goldene Medina (explanation now included)

This is slightly adapted from a post I wrote upon leaving Open Salon. Its inspiration is Anatevka from Fiddler on the Roof - see following link for the original, without which this post will make no sense. Goldene Medina is Yiddish for “Golden Land,” how Jews in the Shtetl (in Europe where Yiddish was spoken) referred to America, as in “the streets are paved with gold.”

ICAN, CANDY COLORED CLOWN, ICAN

At once the sunshower well on its way east, the wet greens of ensuant summer thought: y'am.

Barefoot K.D.Lang soulfully sang Hallelujah...

Badgerland blessed by soft breeze, Gulf of Mexico perfect winds danced the serene drops upon elicit final

astonished magnolia, a warm wash of peace.

The yearling nuzzled alert with monifique tranquility.

She saw me and kept her eye on hunger.

ICAN the acronym spoke the watch, wait, mine…

Thank You Sue

            Perhaps you might not know, yet, that my Mother married a Marine Corps vet. My mother had got to URI, and wound up, knocked up, by this guy. She was eighteen, he was twenty three...the rest they say, is history.

              She was already a tough, Rhode Island Red, a rebel, before they wed. He was no match for her in the field ;  The Little Rhodey was as tall as him, but damaged goods, deep within. 

             I was one of the six she bore, before, they…

Rolling Down to the Sea

near the crystal

hallowed flame

And Yet He Was A Strong Man

often seen over the city as though an angel.

We added memory, obeyed instructions naively, knowing of his departure. You mightily shall crane your neck at the night, watching for a sign. Dreams are sharp slo-mo subtle noise: awake awake awake he doth whisper, to you alone. Dispel romance from the fight. They knew. Project lethargic, the discarded dissertation; when did that enter the conversation? Succinctly expose it other than the big bang. Like postage stamps bound and glassed.…

GROG (Red Bandana On Mast)

& this to a culture that yet has hidden land ordnance in Laos, all these thoughts:

vertical leapt the fox, a digit and code misaligned, candle smudged no doubt by hard night rain, that uniformed man to pick up the wooden box. Would there be pissants on the vine, how would Billy Faulkner Jimmie Mitchell and little boy handle the ashes to ashes, dust to dust, the barefoot damsels all burgundy squished about the toes, but no more to walk alone, hands above…

TRUST

I'd provided everything for you.

You've juices enough for four people, and even from this quiet place I

hear that microwave prompting you like a garbage truck reversing.

I'd planted orchards for us and watched from my hill as swords slashed

and maimed through the…

UNLEADED

There would be a rock, a quiet kind, painted with a heart and names enchanted. So where are they? Who said stop the illegal bombing in Cambodia? That mantra over nicotine haze? Thousands of cocktail glasses on round trays, momentarily silent? Half beer barrels carted and pierced, a cacophonous ritual, like limitless buckets of ice, they listened and he did not speak, he flew; his were good business shoes at one time. Open toe hop-along cassidy…
