GoTHEREable

 

Here a fence post.

Here a planet.

Here a microbe.

Here began it.

 

Go to meet it.

Go to never.

Go embrace it.

Go. Forever.

 

There goes something.

There is vapor.

There was mention.

There, on paper.

 

One honest sky.

One honest youth.

One honest glance.

One honest truth.

When I Say “Heart”

 

Passive function

to say it — said —

most of the time

in my own head.

 

Yet as it beats

it sometimes screams

and then whispers.

It likes extremes.

 

In person one,

body double.

Heart. Heart. Heart. Heart.

Lovely trouble!

 

In that you have

taken a part.

Worlds of meaning

when I say, “heart.”

Definitions

 

To circumvent

in decency

do not tell all

efficiently.

 

To wash without

liquidation

is to rinse in

obfuscation.

 

To dry without

fluidity

you err with air’s

validity.

 

Muddled issues

seek translations,

want agreements,

affirmations.

Four Times Four Times

 

Beat and meter

came out today

to shed their light

in new airway.

 

Double u oh

are and a d

met up with s.

Hyperbole!

 

Meaning is as

meaning does but

actions open

what words have shut.

 

Poetic feet

will find their doors

through Internets

and closed bookstores.
