In The Illusions of Her Forests

Pantheism in my symbols- up a creek, the birds
Are singing to other birds,
Singing to the weathers of the mountain:
She flies higher than them:
Flies over the schoolyards and the graveyards
And the carnivals of lonely men:
See her now tempting us- look up the skirts
Of her cathedrals:
She is a pretty woman you can get nosebleeds
Trying to summit- perpetuity of her embrace
In the longevity of my scars-
Hopscotch in the cinderblocks of her summits,
Time and time again- void in the
Bouquet of her Buddhism’s where the horses
What will they eat but the stones- and I love
A girl from Mexico, as she lingers in the illusions
Of her forests,
Even though our heavens are absolutely the same.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
