A HUNDRED POEMS IV

What this life — explain
nothing dear lover
we give and thou take
a summer breeze and leaf

that oak tree does know
solid and unmoving
seasons tease its leaf
thou eye is steadfast

i walked that path
honey sickle taste
bitter heart nonsense
and lemon smiles sun

my bird sings song
and hast cage iron
what will break wrought

my vortex of life dwell
between and beyond all
phantom dreams us love
and love dance life’s ball

A HUDNRED POEMS (I)

I

into that fire so brief
Death:
an organ untuned
Spring, the last

we spoke tear;
and gave console
eternal words
not from fear

you beauty cry
my resolve strong
an arm upon heart
cascade tears girl

(does she know) that
love and life demand
joy, fear, life, love
her dress dipped blood

(so long dream here come life)

SUCH VISITS

SUCH VISITS I am humbled
those who host such events
Unseen but felt they are
paranormal pleasantries

They are without names
or title but speak to me
royalty and common seed
Such like flowers un-grown

Second Coming will be known
even now the knock upon door
Such guests never say
when they come — even now!

EMOTIONAL DIMENSION

THE emotional dimension
— most interesting
a part of the human-animal
a landscape built on perception
the landfill —
of revelations | experiences
beauty and truth and joy-pain

These nuances
constitute the human-experience
do beat down
such dark hole
some call depression
— spiritual malaise
threatens to eat us alive

I WAS WALKING WITH THE DEVIL

I WAS walking with the devil
yeah, on a hot summer’s night
said to me things not heard
in the light of human-day

Moss-throat stuffed my voice
gator breath stole my soul
up yonder is the pearly gate
but you ain’t got the gold

— can’t enter it today
Says I, “cry me a river”
baby, cry me a river
of blood and tears today

Ain’t that the way honey
when the river flows
— it flows the other way
So we be going and going

Across the river’s way
going to make our way
through the night and day
sweat our soul like nothing
until tomorrow’s day-ya!

CADIUM CAR

AND when you’re riding
around in your cadium car
baby you don’t want
to look at me
— I made a wish upon a star
you took it down
with your burning stare
Why is it you don’t care?
When all you do is
beg for more of me?
when you don’t care
We drive along the ridge
of Misspent Youth
And all the while
you blow your bubble gum
— into the air – you don’t care
red high heels and fashion stare
And you’re wishing upon a star
looking for a time machine
to bring back your days of youth
don’t you care…don’t you care???

What’cha do what’cha do what’cha do
Please tell me what to do…
Please tell me what to do…
Tel me what to do!!!
Cadium car…
Cadium car…
wish upon a star

SEVENTH WAVE

MY LOVE mere words
are empty shells
shrewn across sand
such castings color
sounds of ocean within
Doubt not these words
though empty shells

My life-light fills
each  constellation
Shed such tender skin
oh fear betrays such life!
what you see – what not
but life of yours greater!
Silently sing whales

Sing to me breeze so-easy
lullaby breath tear so tender
blue speaks ivory tenor
caps of white dance-sizzle
seventh wave passion-swells
Beneath waves and flotsam
jetsome golden crystal
