A HUNDRED POEMS – C WHITE SPACE DETOURS

I ride the path by mouth
and nothing more
The pen is dried and tears
have taken a road by south.

Who should feed my vagrant words
they starve at day and flee by night!
And detours, forked by white S paces

And pregnant pauses give birth
to tiny doubts upon my ink!
I watch the children drown there.

A fountain in the square of town
is where I dip my quill,
and the Crier shouts,

“Oyez, Oyez, Oyez!”

Remember all the good souls!

I WOULD FEAR

I would fear for the world,
yes, I would fear.
If not for the smile
of your kind soul.

I would fear for the world,
yes, I would dear.
but not for your soul,
you’re Love — I’ve told

I would fear for the world,
yes, I would fear.
If others were not so lucky
to find one as you.

But there’s no fear
when there’s love,
and even a snowflake
could survive hell.

MOUTH THE MORNING

I mouthed the morning,
and dew and petal!
I ate the soil but not
the bee, but even thorn!
I saw the gnome too,
inside a root of tree!
I kissed his conical hat
and kissed his feet!
This I did all before
but never in my sleep!

SWEET DREAMS

My dreams! Oh! My sweet dreams!
Each night so many scenes!
I dip my eyes into ink-night
and blink and there’s the stage!
The actor’s call and there we are!
All our lines thrown to the winds,
and the props do change on a dime!
Last night I kissed a whale —
and then flew my car into the moon.
I laughed and then I cried tears
as I turned around and saw Mother Earth!
It’s a lump in your heart when you see
no countries or war or death,
and only one world as a whole!
My dreams! Oh! My sweet dreams!

MARY MADE MODERN PROMETHEUS

There you were, locked
in a wintry summer
that long cold
volcanic winter
by Mount Tambora
eruption

You spewed German
ghost stories
by German-French tongue
Your th ou ghts
fragmented

by the silky touch
of cold
a kiss from abyss
to heart

And you, Mary!
Born the Modern Prometheus!

And what say you, maker!
Mot of the clay of monster
but the soul within!?!

A brilliant mind of prose
Imagination beyond the horror
you created that day

A literary monster itself!
No thing that dispose!

ANCIENT ORIGINS OF VAMPYRE

Countess
Elzabeth
Bathory —
Psychosis
or remedy
for tuberculosis?
You — eccentric
woman of red
drank the souls
of all the dead
And Mary Shelly
licked the dreams
a color of Carmine
— raw pigment
of creativity!

MY FIRST POETRY CLUB

I HAD a poetry club
but they all got fired.
The strip club said
I was taking away
all their business.

MICROSCOPICSILICOVOLCANOCONIOSIS

Microscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis
I ate you in all my youth…
buried my face deep inside
     The depths of your soul
inside mother earth’s
vaginal soul!
     I smoked two packs a day
but lived and worked
deep inside between
her thighs — mother
     Silicone of death
and I hear…
a murmur of love
she loves me
     And I love you!
could you let me
If I said I cared for you!
microscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis
     Words, so lovely trip us
long love and life
I keep talking to you
and I want to know…!
     I dug inside your soul
and fed you my heart!
So I want to know
what’s the name of the game
     So small and large
I ate you and died
but dear lover…
tell me you love me
     I dug inside
you ate me
I loved you
and now
     We’re one

BY THE GALLOWS

I built an edifice
of glory
by the fountain
near the river
I sweat the tears
and the labor
I made my home
by the gallows

E la mia vita, come
i momenti …
appendere dall’illusione

[And my life, like the
moments…
hang by illusion]
