He Who Holds the Mirror

July 27, 2014

 

Thunder rumbles
Calls me
I look out the corner of my eye

Earthquakes stake a right
of passage into my heart

If it were not for
Addiction
I would pay attention

That’s the thing

conspiracy spins
distraction

keeps me away from
paying attention

sugar, corn syrup.
kardashian
floods news

when I don’t seem to see
who is the one holding the mirror

At the End of Civilization

July 27, 2014

We may as well go live at the end of civilization
in Corolla where the horses wild roam

The sand will surround us
The sea will creep in

I in my button down parka

He in his button down frown

Is it the year of 65?
Silver savers, gold purveyors

“I will try to fix you”

Yah, that’s right
I still do

I know it doesn’t work
I don’t care
it gives me a cause

I don’t have any

so any old one will do

Let us go then
you and I
to the end of civilization
in Corolla
where the sand seeps in
and the sea

Pushes us out to the
sky where our ship awaits.

Chronic Pain

Sometimes I feel like a motherless soul
I wander from place to place
i sit beside him

he sits in his chair
hey so do i

corrupted by pain
in a stupor

its a shame
we have no
repartee

just rockets
with seats onto
our own universe

Cut off by chronic pain
Art would say
no pain = no gain

and I guess Art
would be right

I remember when
the muse resided in him
creating fulfilling now
he knocks on his door
anxious to get at the
gem residing in the long
hallway with erected crystalline
guards suffocating his outer
rings

I in my chair
He in his
Chronic pain

Nothing Else Compares

July 27, 2014

 

throw coldplay under the bus just because you are into rap now.
whew ewww ahhh
never understand populus
brains thrown out
jump on the bandwagon

nothing else compares

art
is constant
it doesn’t look and say that tree
is old
it looks and says that tree
is triumphant

Hurricane

June 27, 2014

It hit me again

It hit him

and me

again

 

Like before

 

I didn’t expect it

at all

 

It waited until

I was lulling in

the mirror reflection

on the river

 

Sentries on vacation

 

I didn’t react at first

Took awhile to hit me

the first wave

the next

the whirlpool

 

My hand up in the

center

not waving for help

Misunderstanding

June 8, 2014

 

Addiction took my son’s love away

He didn’t want her hurt

He wrote a poem about her

 

There would have been my grandchildren

but he knew better

My daughters boyfriend was the opposite

he bit her

 

He suffused his malicious disease into her life.

Not at all understanding LOVE.

Retirement Town

March 30, 2014

I’ve been looking at Murphy, NC as a possible retirement town. It has the Hiwasee Lake and River and just sounds like a quaint mountain place.  Am checking it out next month. Murphy River Walk: http://www.heritagepartners.org/  Wagon Master Adventure Ranch: http://www.wagonmasterranch.com/ (pan some gold); John C. Campbell Folk School: https://www.folkschool.org/ , a quilt shop and lots of fishing.

The Old Laughing Lady

March 12, 2014

 

The Old Laughing Lady, probably my only Neil Young song.

This year, addiction came home to roost.

It wasn’t pretty cute anymore.

It was sad

hopeless…it was college years down the drain

college years that never came

or never present for.

Three of you listened to the whore

I wish peter pan were true

we’d jump out the window and

fly away to neverland

a ship at sea with crimson skies

I’d tell the captain to reach

and he would.
