sweet and sweeter
dreamin’ in bed in brookland
by the side of my lover
day dawning bright morning
naaaathin’ to do
but hang with you
the whole borough
beckoning
gently
as the rain
which may come
later

in the going
and coming
the from and to
my spirit soars freely
visiting all the moments
it has ensphered
in the Endless
space time realm

the traces
and the faces of memory
clarify

#216. lastly st. louis

March 29, 2010

lastly
i thought
and then
time and its
gentle and cynical
mysteries
with ghosty
neighborhoods
lost virgin loves
a long gone cook’s sandwiches
never eaten again
deeply felt haircuts gifted
by mariannes in storefronts
where piles of groceries
undrunk liquor
in empty bottles
wait out the snowstorm
of cousins young
before their
time
freezes and revisits
its harsh and sentimental
mysteries
lastly
i thought

#215. past lately

March 28, 2010

having
been late
for you
i am ok being
on time
or late
but this moment
as with all the others
will outgrow the past
moments and outlast
the future ones
having
been late
you are on time
for me

#214. guest room

March 27, 2010

tired and sleep escapes me
eyes that know no rest
life in ancient times
mind memory
space time
erased

#213. arrival (st. louis

March 26, 2010

arrival
perched on lift
hesitating
ruler of the air
the earth
laid bare
an endless market
of choices
why down
hesitating
to decide
to land
a mundane
finish
an exhilarating
beginning
the Finginning.

ready to jet
calm
in the eye
of memory
awake
in the storm
of my old dreams
high
in the wild winds
heading west
to you all

who
was that me
who took you
and gave to you
and somehow
wandered
with you
from then
until now
i am
amazed
at how sad
i am
at my
losing you

time
is bent
turned today
on end
yesterday
he for me
now its me
crying
for my friend
we still
carry hope
in the same
young hearts
that turned
time
on end
today
is yesterday
bent

#209. dreamside search

March 22, 2010

the side
of me
that is sight
unseen
scours my dreams
for clues
to the side
of me
that always
cleans
the side of me
no one
should ever see
but always
seems
to lead

when you dream in black and white
color can be difficult
to wake up to
