Brian Mattern Poems
Here's One For The Road (Ode To Ram Dass)
Uncertainty, like history,
it's a rising flood, engulfing me.
This ego of mine surely won't last.
As it struggles for air,
'I' let it drown in the past.
The tide pulls back,
and a wind pulls me in.
The shore I am sure,
is a place to begin.
Naked as light,
a smile is born.
It chases the face,
of a child, to adorn.
Inner peace, in a beautiful world.
Tragedies cease, as flowers unfurl.
So, please drink from the fountain,
you seem parched and uncouth.
Ode To Joy
earth my bold chariot,
i've done you so wrong.
but now i've killed the other three horsemen.
and spared myself, so that i could bring you this song.
should i really have come here?
did you want me at the reigns?
i still can't decipher,
if it was all a mis-take.
riding fast through the judgment,
