catipillar

heaven knows how far gone
the swing sways
the school bus delayed
in this ungodly hour
how we cower
and bowing to wood and stone
on top of these pillar of bones
how I longed to see your face
one last time
simply beyond this pixelated mess we’ve made
did you have even an ounce realism
or am I lost here in cyberspace
in all the search and seizures
that tracked my history
was it lost in the silence?
all I wanted was you for myself
is that so selfish?
am I bound to sulk in this echo chamber?
until I molt into a catipillar?
nibbling, biting
never swallowing

A love

I love you
to leave you
to crush you
to create you
i find solidarity
in our silence
we sit back to back
never seeing one another
folding in to find a breath
a depth
of hope
dig cicerns
for whomever it may concern
to catch fresh water
and rose petals
but a gun’s in a glove compartment
draw it out to size up
but it will not bring any more comfort
the measure of a man is not in his gun
but in laying down his arms and
embracing
our fellow men

Turning

i’ve been gone so long
it melts slowly
this permafrost
each beat returning
squeeze
worlds turn
squeeze
worlds churn
make my bed
scrub the dishes
look up in the sky
trace clouds
touch the pavement
know reality
trust the empty space
inbetween

W hat is the essence of stillness?
is it the longevity of longitude and latitude?
or the brevity of bear stripped branches?
or the sanctity of hollowed wood?
the Roll Tide of the crowd
more likely to be buried in blankets
covering the corporeal with snow
may it erect walls of solitude
may Shalom meet you and guide you
on a tousled path
stillness is
delicious.

Still Delicious
