Chad Otte Poems
Dialysis (Memoirs of a patient)
Tan speckled floors Accept new converts The constant wailing of the machines Promise some another day
God Is With Us
I woke up this morning, With compassion on my breath. Thanking God for all the miracles, And praising for the test.
Oh my friend, your always there, The one true friend that always cares. Being there in the time of need, Showing me love, returning my plead.
Constant complaining, You relive the past so well. The endless muttering, Please run out of gas.
It took years to build, I was so proud. Look what I've done, But you wernt allowed.
Capture me with your last breath I've longed to know you my whole life
Stand Up (To Pray)
Stand up on the table son, Let us see what's wrong, We want to see what damage was done. You called we came,
Cover the hole From me escape no more
Better we are to be rained down on phantom limestone To be shined through cloudy prisms
Paisley carpet shocks me alive Double doors separate my allegiance
Silver Fuzzy Snow (Haiku in Tanka form)
Silver fuzzy snow You tenderly wrap the tree You harbor with care Tree is anxious for release
Ling Ling (Delicate one)
Water turns off The door opens
Scribe your words into my flesh For I know thats all that will be left For me you call One shout I'm gone
To pursue this fine scrap
Is great fun
Up and down the hills
I must run
For to catch a glimpse of
The yellow or black
Thrusting up from the earth
I must attack
To fill my bag
Is my only goal
From this bush
To that tree
I dither around
Cause summer will come
And they will return to the ground.
