The Nile

The Nile

It seems my eyes are rivers, endless
and sun swept. Here - impossibly pure
and banked by sand,
is haven.

Limbs float, tentatively tied to
trunks deserted to new generations.
Half hidden, I am
the crocodile.

Yet, in the sifted silt
submerged, I am painted
a disarming shade of jade.

ARGO'S ILLUSIONS

Thanks for the inivite. On the run for the next few day but I leave a small token of my appreciation.



ARGO'S ILLUSIONS


Islands clipping the dove's tail
Symplegades
the canvas still wet
smells of nightmares

Waiting for the clashing islands to part
for the moment cliffs begin to separate
and ships slip quickly between
to safe harbors smelling of salty dreams

wings clipped
air still
no breath
only illusions in paint

wet still upon the canvas

Wheal of Fortune

all
day off
kilter some poison

drip
seeping from
that rogue chakra

yeah
you tattooed
under my tongue



The Ghost of the Wind

There’s a ghost in the porch swing.
Some might say it’s just the wind
but they don’t know that the wind
around here is a ghost itself.

You can see it trying to change
things in one way or another
when it flips over a paper cup
and spills beer onto the outdoor furniture.

You can see it trying to remind us
of its significance when it lifts the curtains
up from your windowsills and sends them billowing
in the air like it once did the sails of legendary ships.

But mostly the wind has become content
to laze around the flowers,
to wander through the limbs of trees
and occasionally pull some raucous prank

like flinging an umbrella inside out
or tossing a young man’s ball cap down the street:
small, pleasurable things like retirees do
when they have relinquished their responsibilities

to the world and given in to the push
of the next generation, when they have decided
to live out the rest of their days in a porch swing
because outside the rain keeps coming down.

Cenotaph


I stroke your crumbled bones,
sun baked and weather-worn
in a desert graveyard.

I fondle the ivory relics of your name,
beat them into the earth
with the drums of my feet.

You don't answer.

Have you forgotten, in sewn-eyed darkness,
or do you still whisper,
as I do, in elephant songs?

Lisboa


I want to go
to the White City--
nor with carnations,
rhetoric, a trunk;
nor with his letters
to, for, and against
himself.
I want to
go running and mugged.
