Mandolyn ...


tell sadness to catch the next bus


the black sky is silent
after morning turns to daytime
turns to night- and the light
is gone from everything-

we rake the dreams of Summer
while Winter thumps the coffin
Fall can throw a tantrum
it never lasts that long-

and i would sing forever to the sky
if your reflection
moved my mouth
the way i want to move you
closer to my side of the bed

just to read you with a flash light
my eyes on yours for eight hours
till the sun decides it's coming
back again-

shade me from the cruel crass world
where there is no pearl to hold
and swine will flu, fool the rest
as i flee from stress
and rest
inside your shouting arms-

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
