Absolutions

I knew him when my city burned
When clouds of smoke and heaven had no difference
Above the tearing eyes of passerby’s
And there, in the warmth of it
I remembered April
And forgot the irony of the other seasons
Chaos had found me at last

Returning June & Pen

Both eyes have abandoned their color
shedding along with it the reflection of her face
and in its rebellion I have lost my clarity
again, faith has bid farewell
and in this dark hour it is the shade that warms
without the melodies in mind and sight
letters and stain have blurred into the same
lifting the very fragrance of tomorrow
how delicate is it now to speak
to whisper the broken language that heals
faithfully touching the ear as a kiss of wind
on a May afternoon with the sky close above
painting the memory fresh and romantic.....

Not as Yesterday

And from the awful longing
I finally found regret to be the warmest companion
Compared to the fleeting daydreams
Of adolescence and misleading peace
Told and released through bedtime stories
And forgotten beneath the romantic noise
Of pretend poets and wind dried lotus seeds
Planted and watered faithfully
In burrowed pots and cups
There, in the forgiveness of the hour
As strengths and colors begin to fade
A sudden memory creeps slowly in the background
Sparkling faintly a warmth that cools the breath
Trembling to escape every pore
I love you no more…

Keepsake Passage

'Together under the nestle of a good ear
the wind ceased & returned
to carry the sound of thunder & dew
So the above drowned in the quenched
delight of mountain air and heart
And together the sleepers leaped
past the coordinates of heavens gate
and fell as angle-inspired rain
on the brooks and sinews of Summer
and Fall, among the rich pines, they laid
together in the corner of fights & festivals
with no spark to light the fire in the gloom
And together far from the horizon
& shore incision, bright and obscure
Along with the sea-level crown of sunshine
Till the star vanished and echoed
they resounded with the earliest smoke
along the hazel sands of the beach carpet
Together walking undiminished, undeceiving
singing an unreported romance

Sleepless Shore

With ink on her hands she wrote to me her truths
reading over her fingered letters
she gave onto my eyes her promises
and as her words echoed through me
its her hands I ached to kiss
its her fingertips I wished to feel along my face
I moved and I kept still to her image
writing back to her impatiently my inner-truths
my collapsing conditions without her I wrote
steady was the heart and mind I listened to
finding words that came easy to promise her
always and just enough to carry on past it all
whatever it was that came and left its mark
with gentle strokes I painted each letter each passion
laid and displayed carelessly and faithfully in her name
and in the pattern of my insanity, I spoke to her willfully
yours now and forever began each page
forever and a day ended each phrase and with it I reached for her
and in the tune and ballad of a memory I finished....

Serious Injury II

I keep company with bad company, you see
the kind that welcome themselves but leaves
with a piece of who I am
little by little they track mud and fear
across the floor of my mind
disturbing the little peace that I keep framed
shattering the glass portraits of my heroes
ripping the sheets of my lovers
all in the name of insanity and solitude
I keep company with bad company, you see
the sort your eyes hide from but sneaks
glances when your asleep and thinking apart
they whisper wonders of my failures softly like my lady
touch me rudely and roughly when I'm aching
taking pieces of my shimmer and gloss
all in the name of insanity and solitude
I keep company with bad company, you see
the ones that take love away and play
keep away and far enough so that I won't believe
in the yesterdays and verses laid
