BY GRACIOUS ANCIENT LOVE

By gracious
ancient love
and above all
things that are
gently pleasant
life paused
Just if(for you)
and like all
young new hearts
impatiently moved
by his and her
minds all mysteries
are likeMaking new
memories; by
flesh and kisses
walks and talks
hands over bridges
eyes across love
whose sharp horizons
divide the days
and nights of light
and secret missions/
away together as One
away together in Love
is where our minds
take off\I’d rather
live and sometimes
even hurt if Love
at times tenders me.

THE MIDNIGHT STREETS ARE A MIRROR

BELIEVE me when i never told you how gracious
kept pain can be: that i never spoke
those words; the yellow eyes of crying lies
which were \we’d group/
with pretty people on wet midnight streets
like fragrant picked fruit distinctly grouped
very cadmium so reassuringly
— whoa this is bravery

with water-rainbow tints and all the laughter of
liquor-veined beauty ~~ :
today they are raising
a monument by the sea
called YOUTH

YOUTHFUL larger MATURE giants

And the fields of color           bending down to smile
bowing through and through
when you –> passing by ||    the sun feels you
~~~~~ turning the screw
  || all of you ||
And the shadows of mind      all the way near
the river of lost souls    s c r e a m     “OH YOU!”
We are the living souls  of lost paradise .
Youthful larger !
 \/\/\/   mature GIANTS   \/\/\/
sO oh hell yeah : it’s     way down humble’a
nimblest future dream  when we begin to grow
so way down into night   we feel how life says
“Stand up! Be counted!”
Whatever you need is all within that heart that beats:
Youthful larger mature giants
   so beyond the grasp of        mental midget minds
   A SALUTE TO YOU!

THE STARS KNOW

AND when you read
the note card
what feelings
speak to you
is it the love
or maybe the ink
did he speak to you
in a voice
that you knew
was it a true night
and did your space
twirl around girl
or was it your shoes
high heels tipsy
or a dream you wished
and only made true
listen to me now
would you rather
be alone or ravished
by false beliefs
Or is it true —
love isn’t so clear
Girl make a decision
let your heart show you
truth — follow the stars
look up they will show you

DREAMTIME

I kissed you beneath
a bellowing sun smile
and you bit my moon lip
restless rays crashing
below a concert ticket
to my gig in NYC
what favors a cost-ed you
is this what you give
and what I play for you
my fret board fumbles
but my fingers dance
alcoholic streams dancing
fresh flesh never knows
a brain that lives, how?
that wisdom is a bitch
that spanks here and now
this is what you get
when you grab for time
and space skips fingers
a slippery self-lost
in wishes over time
crime cries for ghosts
who have lost their selves
And who is especial
in the stream of dreamtime

WORDS DESTROY ME

This is the last kiss
a memory yet to burn
those souls who regret
a hand played badly
What was it you said?
“life is a game played”
such words you’ll regret
when your life crumbles
I knew the verdict
when I saw you walking
toward me not looking
and my heart shattered
too many pieces to gather
and your words destroy me
“life is a game played”
When the sky falls
I crumble into pieces
and your soul too
one day will burn
when you remember
the heart you destroyed

BLUE BIRDS SING

Someday my love
you’ll realize
that rainbows cry
and in the wet cold
you’ll see gold
that it’s a heart’s love
and one day my sweet dear
you’ll realize that
I was the one
and birds and church bells
sing a ringing song
across missed lives
but tomorrow brings
a new story and life
but in this end dear
I lost you my dear one
but church bells ring
and bluebirds sing
and tomorrows may cry
but my heart sings
that sun of love

SUGARCANE

The cane-fields were thick and tall but the summer’s sun much higher.
We ran through those paths between the green rows of sweetness
and the laughter of your voice made the sugarcane that much sweeter.
I cut down a stalk at the risk of some farmer finding out and made a flute
and we danced on the riverbank of the Mighty Mississippi that day.
You told me to follow my dreams whatever they might become but I said
I only had one dream and it had come true that day.  We were 13 and
I moved on but you died the following week.

CIVILIZED-WILD

a step or two into the civilized-wild
just a breath or two from safety
and the stares stabbed me in the heart
and what thoughts they threw i knew
it had to do with the body i grew

sometimes — sometimes i cry enough
but times these times are so damn tough
if i could catch a rocket to the moon
— i would too

i run back into my four-walled universe
where opinion is the hardest, me-on-me
and the only friend i have isn’t flesh
but that special mirror that fixes things
and i cry so tired i cry the world’s tears

DASHBOARD LIGHTS

Image
(c) E.P. Robles 2012

fragment image smiling
disjointed feelings reeling
shifting time’s a feeling
so fine this lovely healing

I’m flying over you —
safely crazy you
the wolves are out tonight
secure my burning feelings

Tarot giving higher vision
so lost within possession
what last heartbeat collision
it sings to me tonight
deeply sleeping in obsession

car crash moment halting
twisted dreams in mesh
my dreams become a stalling
beneath the dashboard lights

A night for youth but haunting
living fast and burning
confused illusions running
too soon we pass beyond
