Forward and Back

Standard

It’s an upside down world out there

With disabled people,bruised,

Sunk into selfish slumber.

And there are words inside ribcages

Dying caged animals.

She carries her shadow like a veil

With a trail of storms in the debris.

The words are gnawing at her

As they turn to powder.

She’s a pale ghost hunting people

Putting flowers into cracked vases

A figure going backwards

Away from the unbearable air outside

To the womb.

Wordlessness

Standard

Years from now

We’ll think back

At the grobian wordlessness

In the midst of life.

A memoir of emotions

And a graveyard of dreams.

The grass turns yellow and

The bones return home

In noble modesty.

We fall fast and hard

Melted away like snow in spring…

It dawned on me

That people can’t live forever.

Why would loves?

Born to be blue

Standard

We all stumble.

The walls of the room close around us,

And the bodies weep

Under microscopical breaks.

With every brush of the hair

Your name comes up

As poison is removed from a wound

And reason is dulled by slumber.

Time runs through the fingers

Like sand…

The miracle of every 61st second.

The obstinacy of blood

Returning to the carcass of the heart,

Though there’s nothing left

standing there…

There are loves like candlelight –

Beacons for moth like creatures.

And there are loves like fires.-

Self consuming,spectacular loves

Of foreseeable death…
