Smokey (A Poem For The People Of London England)

Angry is the tiger
Who prowls
in the SMOKE

Tiny Distractions

Those things in our lives
that do not bear dwelling upon

at a guess are legion

and

so are tiny distractions
that alleviate our despair

Mamma's Reflection

I dust my cloth
Across the glass
I cannot see her
But she's there
I know

Her pale eyes

Watch me from
The mirror:
Her only window
Now

From the mirror
She watches
From the mirror
She looks

In the mirror
Trapped where you

Uncertain Sea

If your tide goes sweeping out to sea
Let it be- do not despair -nor cast lament
Let not imagination conjure rip and rent

For this may be- this journey on uncertain sea

A journey of things never imagined-grand
More exhilarating than things thus planned

Your adventure not planed but free- all upon the uncertain sea

Life Is A Tiger

Life is a tiger a terrible beast....
a terrible beast who will
eat you up

He does not know CHANEL
perfume number five
from.....cow dung number 23,
nor a Paris gown
from a breech cloth

At least he loves us all the same,
mangles with no malice,
no elite are dressed
for his jaws, blood and flesh
have the same sweet taste.....
he gnaws as savagely
on my arm as yours,
eats both hearts
with the same gusto.

What We Love

What one has loved is as mutable and uncertain as any other reality
The passing face - life passing - a smile passing by-
What does it signify- mean - imply

Just the turning of a head -the lifting of a hand
The cadence somewhere of something lost in times mist

A childhood bedtime kiss

Looks from eyes and words from lips
Laughter that triumphed and laughter that enraged
Laughter softened on the rim of enchantment

Loving now things past despised -hated - neglected

Rejected

When a little farther along lifting as morning fog-just a bit beneath
We see what was never seen before - the beauty of it all
Grandeur of something eternal that will not diverge

Since You Are Gone

Since you are gone the stones lie differently along the ground
and words that are the same now have a different sound
-and-
sharp and clear in early dawn there is a road I cannot travel on

Since you are gone- since you are gone

Since you are gone the path seems steeper still
there seems to be more brambles on our hill
More birds that do not sing
more incests that do sting

Since you are gone- since you are gone

Since you are gone the stones lie differently along the ground
-and-
Words that are the same

Now have a different sound
-and-

End Of A Dream

Dream.....
End of a dream.....
Where do you stand
at the end of
a dream..

All is behind; 'round in your
head
Splinters of sound, words that
were said;

Broken like toys, days that were
planned
Gone into mist, sunk into sand

There's no place to stand
At the end of a dream.....

End.....
End of a dream.....

Can You Turn?

Can you turn from the sword
that invites-please
'Hang upon me? '

Or shrink back from the
boasting pool that whispers
'Jump'

But I am afraid of blood which
makes me sick
Scalding water on tender skin-

It is terrible, terrible, terrible

Faith is useless here:
I tell you this, it is no illusion

The blood is real and so is the bubbling water

Look carefully:
