Improvisation 01 15 2014
Improvisation 04 18 2014



Pinned to walls of apartment halls
Leading to rooms of mansions
Friends live in fantasized home
Addresses - many wings attach to
Fit inside conviction - images
Stuffed in albums - sleeve hidden
Subatomic nuclear energies spin to
Bond nostalgic histories together
To spin irretrievable misadventure
Wasted on experiences in solitary
Confinement -I spin here as though
I were there hoping to find spirit
Unions both here and there -though
Another passenger invisible on a
Love Train spinning out to quanta
Edges - as happens to leave none
Here alone -so tomorrow we will
Appear exposed to ‘Spacetime' -as
Spirit clouds pinned in dissension
But by the force of love I am here
And there -and you are there and
Here exiled from forgotten arrival
Stations and departures - friends
Do not fail to return from dark
Absurdity and missteps wobbling on
Floors and doors of trains -hold on
Light sets on the beloved embrace.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A day starting out doubting the memory of here or there
and a failure to recall where... so humans on a train
miss stops again and again for the fate of genius
but GRACE FILLED... The Lord sits silent spilling trickles of abundant grace onto the embrace

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
