WORSE THAN ANY DISEASE

|| 2 feet from the mud
on 6 inch heels breathing
difficult words while screaming
it’s all for real
like kissing touching
the weeping burning sun
hugging frail entrails
–while shivering like
bleeding soldiers and
we’re all within a living
hell /together my billion
soul brothers and sisters\
there are some remedies
worse than any disease
my withering hands hold
your face as i offer
an invitation for
memory loss ;
you receive ||

A SEPARATION BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL

I despise my skin
the body within —
clothes that dispose
a shadow of myself
What awake human
could love this state
the separation between
heaven and hell

I’ll WARN THE DEVIL

(c) E.P. Robles 2012

When I left
you tore to shreds
what remained
of our memories
and that touch
you gave to me
I cut into pieces
upon your grave

If I live to see
tomorrow morning
I won’t forget
to warn the devil

and heaven shudders
at my innate power
the angels begging
don’t forsake love

I won’t be able
to match the beauty
of the dead in my heart

if I live to see
tomorrow morning
I won’t forget
to give you
my warning

I will touch your hand
and thaw —
your dead heart
and heaven will sigh relief

there’s no beauty matched
what lives dies today —
and tomorrow lives
another burning day

MANY TIMES MORE THAN TWICE

MANY times more than twice have I seen
the ghosts of family, friends and then…
some whose faces that I did not know

Quaintly, with ethereal elegance they are
silky touch, feather breath, and opal eye
Outside of the tick-tock of father time

It is most inappropriate to ask of them
to state their business or intended pleasure
extend your politeness over scorn I say
