I AM NEVER WAS

my dear friend
(i did not wish
for you to read this)
my dear soul
i wrote to you
a silent poem
erased by fear
(and time revealed)
my fears of love
that i did not wish
my poems to become
the cheapened gifts
of royalty or life
I only wrote to you
the dearest soul
of common life.
but now the rich
seek to buy my soul!

PULL

the deep thing
we wish to do!
to draw or paint
or write or love
a few to do,
an impossible all!
an any or all
is a life of art!
it is by nature
— that moves
us all!

ARTIFACTS OF RESURRECTION

A sweetness!  tender
giving loving presence!
the warmth of all-embracing
loving souls greeting!

the Clean Slate to build!
and memories, but an echo!
i, too, feel!  a something
like nothing but more

and words!  and pictures!
colors and voices!
this is a something
maybe a nothing but more!

the crest of euphoria
devours my senses
and all license given
to begin again!

Shall i?  shall i?
i too!  think i shall!
