The Amber Beacons


I awakened up again today to hear another voice,
The same old voice clapping and making forays: the jungle of birthdays
And smoking candles like the incestual waters of a forest fire
Burning upside down:
They say I have all of these pains but it’s just because I wear such a
Heavy crown,
While all the cheerleaders slumber, while they beat their first under the half
Opened shells of bridges,
While Alma also rests, more beautiful than any of them:
Alma, the soul of a lighthouse, saving even heroes: her world so bright green
But hidden, her bedroom I have never been to- her man of so many years
Coming back to her like to palms meeting in the prayers and the amber
Beacons that Alma brings.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
