PARASITIC PLANT

i touched your leaf
then ran away
and some of you
came home with me
parasitic plant
how i feel
is how you see
a blade of grass
without a leaf
a buried soul
within a root
a beating heart
inside the tissue
of a vine
i’m blown away
all because of you

And by your method
you germinate
as my soul abdicates
releasing myself
inside your life
lovely hungry
parasitic plant

WHEN YOU WILT

YOU, SUNFLOWER my personal Nation
the native of beauty as well — harvested
love-seed!

i am slightly bent as a stem against
changing winds

tall of course, my face of bright yellow then
again brown center – sometimes red!

my heavy head-filled with tears(sometimes)
seeds
a remarkable flower am i,
tough, easy to grow– as long as the soil
is not waterlogged

and heat! drought-tolerant!
attractive to BEES and BIRDS
like my heart and soul bee!

me: SUNFLOWER

THE JUKEBOX ATTIC

My smiles are all inside
a jukebox attic of your
forever never-forgiving
bone cave mind!
I have a chisel sharp-thought
bringing me freedom
and you wish your highness
could bring every man
to his knees.  I forgot my
parakeet who speaks
all the seedless words
of your tongue.
To wait for a simple sentence
conjures an ink-dipped heart.
I’m just a tattoo kiss
upon your heart.
