DO NOT ALLOW THE MOON TO KEEP YOU

THESE SIMPLE NIGHTS are
simple dreams
if you are going to
dreamland take parsley
,sage and a white candle
and remember those you
left behind:  they were once
the best friends in love
    tell her to meet me outside
by the deep forest green —
express the light and spirit
i once felt when she first kissed
me there.   A scarlet mark upon
my heart and Life which I shall
wear with honor for the true love
of mine.

ALL I WANT IS TO SLEEP DELIRIUM

i swallow eight while time
tells me, “ha ha”
i’m so miserable with my pillow
and my heart thumps like an
elephant released into the wild
after nine years oh my my,
the white coat says go! so here
i go without a net — my feet
bleed so my eyes bulge
and my brain screams
‘i’m lost in delirium’
a clock says, “nine”
my tongue so dry dancing
upon dead minds — my heart; oh!
dancing everywhere explodes!
maiming souls and blinds
whatever i was before today
i’m so numb /600 lb gorilla
in my room\ so here we go
sleeping within delirium
and i know i’m on my own
so here we go again
and so i try till something
breaks within my soul
‘ten’ strikes the clock
and i’m done — very well
and now i sleep to begin again
in the morning i’m so dead

SWEET PLUSH PURR

sweet plush purr
like a squeeze-
box when sleeping!
little kitty making
squeezing songs!
dreaming sleeping
while the day
is so young!
