WHEN THE LUST WHERE WHAT LOVE

when the lust, where what love
autumn’s dress for the fall
that nymph and golem may call
brilliant bloody muddy air
and dance, humanity (a/s)way
the conjure of passion-magic
be-and what so much, so be
diligently, ballerina heart
a gaggle-swoonly crystal pond
gasping wooded valley song!

A kiss to fear; kissing you!
and heaving-heaping tears, too
my bow to the princess beauty
and I, the beastly creature
they shall cry, ‘go!’ to myHorror
and no tear between heaven-here,
but hearts like mountain-skies
may invite love and romance
beyond the gate of pearl
–Spirit calls the cards

a deal to deal and some-twice
when dealt to most who die;
love survives immortally so

A HUNDRED POEMS – XIX

IF I were
a broken soul,
who could mend me
— the cobbler
down the road?
With his crafty skill
and many tools,
the awl or maybe
stretching tool?
He would surely know
— should I go?
My shoes, so worn
but my soul so full
of empty holes!
My Cobbler, sir!
repair my soul
insufferably I plead!


A HUNDRED POEMS – III

and today I slay death
it was my way
knife-heart
blade and life
what light
reveal
strength or frail
truth for man
and the council,
the pompous twelve
non-human  but eager
to learn
and,
Earth is a grand
battlefield petal-rose
red soil and bitter torn
in dream or fear dear
lackey heart weak-near
the hand grab my heart
heroes save, what shadow
old man or bag lady
do not stare this way
for all had is given
move along, tomorrow-
today the gift is given
softly, we praise Him
who always gives more
those flowers in fields
and simple pleasures

A HUNDRED POEMS – XCIV

see me through
today — the walls
so grand and
what height!
I [my soulBones] tired
but that heart still beats!

and I wish my mind
were a heart — thoughts
like blood coursing
through my life

my unspeakable —
teach me strength!

A PARTICULAR DISCUSSION

HIGHER BEING:  “No, no, no, that’s a terrible idea.
We desire they live only so long,
seventy-years at best.”

CREATOR:  “But, love is eternal!”

HIGHER BEING:  “Then let them love in death!”

ET INDE HUC (From There to Here)

FRIEND:  And where are you from?
ME:  I’m from another place far away,
which no one can visit from here.
FRIEND:  How is that?
ME:  Do you believe in time travel?

FEAR

Now, this isn’t the time to freeze up!
Leave your comfort zone and just do it.
And if you feel the need to vomit,
well, just swallow it!

RESOLUTION DEATH

My promise,
that resolve!
To never see
this lover again
— my resolution,
what steadfastly
I held for some time,
abandoned by just
a moment —
my utter despair!

WORLD, NATIONS, STATES & PEOPLE

Despair!  What name
given by the devil.
Made me try to eat,
yes it did, try to
eat the sin of
hope — I told it no!
And the world, and nations
and states and peoples
took a bite, yes they did
bit into that apple of
the One but I say,
“you may have an answer
but not my question
and the world isn’t
so neat and I worry
for those who think
it’s so” —
The world, nations,
and states, and it’s
peoples, love that bite
yes they do, an apple
fallen from the
tree of life!
