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.

An Edit Day

Abundience?

With extra i

a misspelled word–

disqualify.

+-+-+-+

Too much of this!

The edits way

see text is rhyme

in context stray.

+-+-+-+

Weird work on words.

Communicate.

To shiver well,

translate, innate.

To clarity!

Let that be aim

Rein all letters…

Dream Gravity

Sleeping body

soul untethered

in such freedom

I’m too gathered.

 

Dream is a path—

requires no feet

floating story

left incomplete.

 

Even in a nap

dreams are practice

to connect to

this life’s atlas.

highlinebricksSo much depends

on the sleep’s time

of day or night

the quanta “I’m.”

Spinning Circles

coinmotion

 

 

 

 

The young the old

the middle age.

Income—expense

in wallets’ wage.

 

We all design

the world’s spreadsheet.

But just enough

won’t make ends meet.

 

The socialists,

the me-di-awe.

They exchange lists

of need and law.

 

Society

will pay the price.

Prosperity

in fire and ice.

Year of numbers

day of the weak

count money all

in close critique.

 

Minimum wage.

Maximum cost.

Moderate gains.

Measured and lost.

 

The whole has left

its parts of sum

to right align

with new income.

 

Cells divided.

Reached attainder.

The last question?

A remainder.

Entanglement:

Where love meets fate

as episodes

accelerate.

 

NOTE: This poem is based on two recent incidents where roses and tea were key players in scenarios that I must describe as magic! The month of February in the year of 2016 has been extraordinary—and there is still a Leap Year Day on the horizon. It can only mean more magic…and I wish it for all who happen to read these words…yes, YOU.

Ancient Linen

 Carbon data

in aging test

tells for certain

what year she dressed.

 

But not the who

of that woman’s

so long ago

neckline, bosoms.

 

Metal necklace…

still in the tomb?

And her earrings?

What of her womb?

 

Dressed or naked

life she lived well

back when time’s weave

was parallel.

 

NOTE: The dress someone wore a long time ago was in the news:

“TRANSymboLATE”

Hello, new word

and new style poem

I’ve come to take

your numbers home.

Through love of fours

in stanza sets

and patterned rows

I forgive debts.

2222 2222 2222 2222

Use of quanta

stating logic

gives rise to play

with symbolic.

3333 3333 3333 3333

Mind traveling

off course I’ve veered

to code-create

what’s very weird.

NOTE: This was written on January 8 and held back because it was submitted to a publication. Since it was rejected, I am free to place it here. Since then, this fascinating article came into my reality:

Well…I loved this article so much! Imagine this: heat maps of punctuation turning into art!

 

anni VERSE are

in cherry pies

in fishing boats

in housefly eyes

in Einstein quotes

 

out of the truth

out of the trash

out of the tooth

out of the trance

 

of wonderment

of taking charge

of government

of living large

 

surrounding in

surrounding of

resounding out

rebounding love
