Cubism

to write you a poem

o to write you a poem
sleepy eyes & 5am
sitting (with my thoughts)
back terrace as the city
is still

o to write you a poem
of all the days & ways
we'd celebrate
Life & Love in themselves
(of course be happy)

o to write you a poem
but words don't burn
like night cigarettes
& memories stain
side street lines

o to write you a poem
of hidden stars
now all gone--
they go before sunrise
like us too

o to write you a poem
my mouth is dry
& here we sit
5 hours away
dreaming together

o to write you a poem
you are
my unfinished
poem
(goodnight)

weeping savannah

image.jpg

city of ruins

flesh-colored(dark)dreams

broken bones

 

history noosed

spanish scent of death

all but forgone

 

(women)thick accent

pinned to the breast

home

 

weeping savannah

do not weep

for me

 

repressed (something

distressed) 

archeological memory

 

ancient cross

rasp of splintered

normality

 

cast iron

gates--old as

centuries

 

weeping savannah

do not weep

for me

 

i have seen

both ends of

eternity
