A LITTLE BOAT AFLOAT

i made you happy in a noose twice tied
say how you cut y o u r s e l f
it makes you happy red blood rivers
and little boy with a paper boat
watches how you feed the river
from your veins And if you cut
my throat i could have sang how you
make his boat float upon the river
happy and i am frozen
happy and i am frozen
in all my pain
And you really know
i’m a senseless apprentice
how to knock and roll
my feelings -oh! don’t go away!
a little boy with a boat watching blood
float his dreams and i’m pulling the
plug and if you say “i’m
so happy, “watch the rock’n’roll
a boat in a river full of blood and
your happiness is the hull of a ship
that drowns in all
you dreams of!” GO AWAY! GO AWAY!
So don’t you fool yourself
keep yourself in a trunk
of ship buried so deep
and you never knew —
the boy without love or humanity.

WHAT IS SYMPATHY

i spoke love when she stirred
benign; honey bled through shades
at eleven o’clock so spake i gently
of her
And all of her breath i am painted in color
of pinks and death lily-like white,snow
defamed; disgraced her youth my mistaken
footfall in time
we are unraveling beauty like storm-
clouds bursting –feeding fields
instead of hearts and sympathetic
: the LORD is a stronghold for the
oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble
(Psalms 9:9)

OUR FATHER WE SOMETIMES WEEP

Oh Father give me patience
let me dream in love
and if someday clouds
part away let my heart
be near the sun
Amen.
And Father i have pain
it gives me feet to move
across today
and whose castle walls
weep as doves fly above
let me move my eyes
there where i should
forgive the debt of life my Lord!
Smaller than the period
at the end of this
sentence.
Amen
