CHICKADEE CALLS…

WHISPERING IN PIPING

TO COME FORTH FROM MY BED

SPREAD THE SEED MEAL–

CARDINAL CHIPS SHARPLY

FLAME OF THE ANCIENT FLINT,

NOT COUNTING A FLASH OF BLACKBIRDS

WITH GLISTENING PURPLE HEADS

CROWDING IN FROM CAT TAILS

AND BLUSHING MAPLES–

COLD DRIFTS DOWN FROM CANADA

AND I WANT TO DIG DEEP

UNDER COVERS WARM…

THESE FEATHERED SERPENTS

WONDERING–

WHERE IS MAN–

ONCE MY FRIEND–

ASLEEP UNDER LAST SEASON’S HEAT WAVE?

CARVED ANCIENT BLACK BIRDS

YOUR RAIN…

MADE CRAZY MUD PIE FACES!

YOU NEVER CRIED…

TOOK IT ALL AS CUSTOM,

FOUND YOUR SELF

IN TEEPEES AND FIRE WATER,

CUT YOUR OWN CLOTH,

SERVED UP A PRINCESS DRESS

AND LIVED IN A TRAILER,

SINGING,

DOWN BY THE ENDLESS RIVER

OF REGRETS WITHOUT FEAR,

WHAT A PRINCESS YOU WERE!

SEWED A MAGICAL TEEPEE DRESS

FORGET THE TEARS

SHE TOLD ME–

FOCUS ON THE LAUGHTER

OR BOLD KNOCKS ON DOORS,

BREATHY GOOD MORNINGS,

LUSTFUL FAREWELLS AS

EYES JOINED ACROSS TALK AS

FURTIVE BRUSHES,

FOOTSTEPS HURRIED,

IMPULSIVE NEEDS

AND UNREMEMBERED BRUISES…

ROCKING INTO A WORLD

OF ECSTASIES DENIED

TO SHY ORDINARY LOVERS…

FOR IN OUR SEASONS OF MADNESS

WE LITTLE DEMONS

PLAYED OUR SWEATY JOYFUL PARTS

IN PURGATORY’S PASSION SHOPS.

WE LITTLE DEMONS DANCED OUR PLAYFUL PARTS!

FLYING

IN DREAMS AT FIRST

THEN IN WAKING LIFE

AMAZING, FRIENDS SAID,

CAN I DO THAT TOO?

OH OF COURSE, I SMILED,

RISING INTO THE AIR

FINDING MY FAITH–

FOR THAT’S WHAT IT WAS–

THIS CENTER OF CONFIDENCE–

AND LETTING THAT LIFT

LIKE A GREAT PILLAR OF AIR

CARRY ME INTO THE SKIES

SWINGING OVER FOREST & TOWN

RIVER AND SEA–

CIRCLING CONTINENTS

THINK ONLY OF FAITH SOLID:

A PILLAR OF INVISIBILITY.

A PILLAR OF INVISIBILITY ON TAKE-OFF!

ON THAT STUMP!

CAN YOU GIVE AN OLD MAN A HAND?

LOOK AT MY HOBBLE–

WATCH MY PAIN TWITCHING…

LIKE BLUE SKY COVERING ALL…

I AM YOUR FUTURE,

SO, BEWARE, YOUR IDLENESS

MAY BRING ON MY LATEST STATE

EVER MORE RAPIDLY,

TURNING TO ANCIENT STONE

LIKE A CURMUDGEON

PARKED BY YOUR FRONT GATE!

A CURMUDGEON’S OLD GATE!

A CONFUSION OF TONGUES

BUT I MADE IT CLEAR

YOU’RE NOT WELCOME HERE

AND NOW THE ASSAULTS

I HAVE TO HIDE

BUT REFUSE

AND SO, THE BATTLE–

ALONG DARK STAIRWELLS

ALLEYS, LOVELY STREETS

MUSILED THING, NO FACE

JUST STRENGTH AND A KNIFE

LONG ENOUGH TO PIERCE THE HEEART

BUT I DON’T GIVE IN

AND FINDING MY VOICE

AWAKEN COMRADES

CIRCLE UPON CIRCLE

WIDENING IN WAVES

LIKE A STONE HITTING A POOL.

A CONFUSION OF TONGUES

MUSCLE & BLUBBER

GIANT HE WAS

LEGS LIKE MOUNTAINS

FEET LIKE BOULDERS

CAME THIS WAY

ARMS SWINGING

EYE OF EAGLE

SCOOPS UP LITTLE FOLK

CRUNCHES THEM

LIKE CORNFLAKES

BLOOD STAINED LIPS–

THE CIRCUIT OF RACE HORSES

OPEN TO LAUGHTER

BLASTING ASIDE FORESTS

WITH HURRICANE FORCE

NO FUTURE HAVE WE

CONSPIRING ON KNOCKING KNEES:

BLESS US RULING GODS & DEMOCRATIC CITIZENS…

FREEDOM IS ON FIRE YET AGAIN!

RULING CITIZENS ON FIRE
