Best Poem of Danny Draper

For The Longest Time

They wore it an each day shirt
Spring tide of native tongue,
Pollen grains dust 'n' fury
Ticked days fell from union,
And laid
for the longest time.

They chanced upon
The life cleft beauty,
Sullen indolent skin
Ambient with cold earth,
And talked
for the longest time.

They watched over
The dispersing elements,
Disinterested in transgressors
Detached from accusation,
And lingered
for the longest time.

They felt unsure
As marrow lost its days,
History laid and tattered
Fragmented perception,
And ...

Read the full of For The Longest Time

Crapper Lyrics No 1

Used to live in shoebox
At side of road
Not too bad til grass got mowed
Cut to pieces and blown to wind
Raked up by the gardener and put in the bin.
I'm so poor I can't afford water in this heat
I have to squash grapes just
To wash my feet,
Your mamma said to mummy

[Hata Bildir]
