WATER[i]VERSE

IMG_4115

a walk, an eye

a camera

a thought, a poem

oh grammar, ah!

/

four elements

elemental

for energies

go in, gentle…

//

air day or night

sea fair or rain

fire holds on tight

earth is a brain

///

a verse of stars

in water drops

reality

in flight nonstops

////

NOTE: Last night I had the opportunity to visit open desert. I did so with friends equipped with cameras and intentions to capture light in darkness. Success — undetermined. Near the end of our field trip, we happened on a park, a playground, that was being watered by sprinklers. That is what this photo is — water drops projected from a sprinkler, at midnight, being played with by the flash from an iPhone.

Swignificance

Piece a peace crust

slice-cut the bread.

Drink as you must

what fruit has bled.

 

Syrup cuisine?

Bee of a sting?

A thermal spring?

Meal unforeseen.

 

Rooster’s daughter

a fine relate

feathered water

to stock create.

 

Hunger and thirst

the spirit feels

what soul has nursed

and taste reveals.

In the tech fields
plus in trenches
human faces

For High Cool Heat

 It’s gunite, shotcrete,

fast powder spark that triggers

solid violence.

 

Licensed to carry

wrong law and fierce lawd put life

asunder. Begun.

 

Police poetry:

hands in, up, over, out—gone.

Got you, Negro. Die.

 

F sound follows Gun.

Fear. Force. Fire. Fail. Face. Fact. Fate.

Unacceptable.

NOTE: I usually do not write about injustice, but the video of a black man being shot by police IN FRONT OF A FOUR YEAR OLD GIRL and her mother was a horror for which I had to find words.
