Like rain on the roof…

The words fall on the brain,

Exploding into parsed fragments

That I struggle to mend

With tape, glue & staples:

Chuck-a-luck bozo,

Faux paint Big Big Show,

Clown Dancer on pine

Boards flexing sunsets

Lost in the Midway

With my alphabetic fools.

My Life is NOT Mine…

I bounce between atoms

Who have a need

And secretly despise me.

Especially with fame or fortune;

They love my high bounce

And cheer my descent

Into the pit of failure–

If I achieve a higher state,

They deny–

Begging the question–

How goes energic friendship?

I know not its true name,

And certainly never know its final cosmic face…

Leave me the night light…

I’ll find my way to bed,

The car’s parked aslant the berm

My foot steps heavy fall

From a stolid giant too full

Of grog squeezed from plants.

Harbored all snow time

In dank cellars where babbles

The rivulets of song from soil

Black with yarns & scalds

Runic marks and flesh scars

Of mighty battle heroes play,

To entertain the gods

Oh celestial mead

Too long feasting

So comes the call for war.

Winter Flames Get Even

Sweat…

Stinging feet,

Bone tired.

Head jerks,

Ineffable tedium,

Never ending tasks:

Money nicks,

Blood flows,

Blanching heroes leaping

Into the battle.

Don’t think!

Move! Move! Move!

Ah, uncertain Victory!

By golly, YES!

LOWER THE HAMMER ON DINNER!

Grant me, Oh Cosmic Lord,

An access to infinity

That I may applaud

Thy Mighty Works

Throughout the Cosmos;

For surely Human’s work

Upon this amazing Orb

Is but a gift of life

For the fulfillment

Of Eternal Designs,

Long since etched

In a Great plan

Of universal unfolding,

The mighty theatre

Of unknowable Ambition.

Let your Hand guide Ours

In this Glorious Handicraft.

Mother Ocean’s Embrace

Winsome Lass

Atop a hill

Sun drifts in patches–

She looks my way–

Tilts her head,

Smiles,

Beckons with index finger

Bemused, she bends:

She bends

To a kiss of encounter

From her neck

The perfume of youth

Allure of every gene

Calling me to duty

That I knew too well–

Judge not but relinquish

To the wind off the hill.

So, there it is–

The bald truth

Hideous in its way–

Ignorance

As blind to truth,

A blink, a shudder.

The opposition denied

The slaying of vigor

And difference–

The block against love

A crow caws

Across the snow

From a tall conical fir,

Its beacon measures

The exhaustion of ties

Come sunset, a last

Twilight roosting–

Blue Twilight Roosting

Nervous?

Who me?

Please!

Look at these hands.

Ready for brain surgery.

You know–

If I could, wanted to, don’t!

No,

These are the nerves

Of a master of his fate:

Seen it all,

Been there–

And back again…

To tell the tale

Enough to make old men cry!

So why am I pale?

Ghost of my former self!

Nervous!

Dangling here with heart

In trembling hand

Exposed to all eyes.

Judgment call sounds

With stentorian horn

Welcome to the villa

Your presence is desire

Reject us not and

Learn the joys of festive life

Under a sun potent

With bronze skin

Reaching back to Aztec

And Comanche and names

Long forgotten but for

Curios etched in prints

A huddled family

And fire smoke from mesquite.

Fire Next Time

This Overflow

Goes beyond banks

And trimmed parks

Off into the streets

That go down a hill

Where neighborhoods fill

With tragic escape tales

Dog paddling to small boats

Or riding roof beams

A tar shacks left

And unanchored–

Change addresses

To river towns down

Where gravity plies its trade

Rolling to the salty sea

We sleepers…now recruited

For circum-navigations.

Dog Paddling
