You too, are full of beauty and tender grace~ (a senryú)


 
 
A heart is stunning,
even if you can't see it's
beautiful kind beats

smoking with madonna

 

i spark
a cigarette
in an unlit room

you stare
through sparks
from painted
pupils,

my mind
contemplates
every time
spent on
prayer

recoiling
between
love &
disdain

as i blow
smoke
in your
direction.

There are a few good ones

 
 
you’ll know them
by the echo
of their feet  
in your heart
 
their love
in your lungs
 
their strength
wound tightly
in your chest

Just like this goddamn rain

 
I push on
through the vertical rain
lashing at an open umbrella
stretching tightly over
metal ribs

pulling a coat collar
together, my fist
clamped against
a small pool forming
at the neck

and I can’t
stop myself
from thinking

it feels like your hand
intimate, stoking
your jealous fires,
your maddening life
accelerating, over
and over

until

you rock yourself
to sleep, without touch
as minutes marinade
hours of fat droplets
to drown in.

By the time I return
I am cold, soaking wet
drenched by every shard

the doorbell rings

it isn’t you—

I weep
a strange joy
after dark.

Glitches

there are glitches in time
when a flower in bloom
gets picked for the vase
adorn a table briefly and die

for you, an angel stood awhile
at your door
watched you, perhaps he smiled
and for a while
he remembered sunshine
laughter and love

he saw your pain
picked you up
and flew to Glory.

for an old queen

 
i find myself in the same position
where you once stood;

recalling an old conversation
at the tender age of twenty two

where you slapped sense
into my mind
into my soul

telling me
"forget age"

it's a journey
without a
destination,

how going
about your
business

softens
an edge
of desperation

before letters
pile through
a letterbox,

even if
people took
it as rude
& blunt

they cannot deny

there was
truth in
what you
said,

so thank you

for keeping
a grouch
fixed to the
ground,

old
queen.

Fragile

a fragile memory
shatter prone
just a smiling
Good Morning baby
brush your sleep
from your eyes

its a new day
coffee Kisses
warmth
...blowing kisses
from clenched fist
precious memories

hide her pain ~ behind vibrant
colours and a smile

when i gave my word

 
 
 
my pores never dared to drink another skin,
 
which is a language  
acknowledging the difference
 
between  
boy & man.

On acceptance

 

To tell you
the truth, kid
I envied you
a little

sure, it was hard
to tell the world;
to unwrap your body
like the gift that it is

to mould it, shape it
into something more
befitting of the beard

how I loved your Dad
even more for how
he embraced
everything.



Not sure I’d get
the same hug
from the folks.



It’s hard
sometimes.
